Hello, George,
      Thank you for your letter. I received it yesterday and now I want to tell you a few things about me and my family.
      First of all I would like to tell you that I was born on 12th of February 1998 in Bucharest. My family is composed of four members: my mother (Mary, 45 years old), my father (Ken, 48 years old), my sister (Janet, 10 years old) and I. We love each other very much and spend a long time together.
      I go to a very good school which is close to our home. My teachers are great and there I learn a lot of new things. I meet my friends almost everyday and we do our homework together. Then we play some games.
       What about you? I’m waiting for your letter to tell me about your childhood, your family, school and town.

Your new pen friend
