Ex. 1
Hi Carlos
Just touching base to tell (0) to you about the film I went to see last night as you asked. My advice to you (1) are is – don’t bother with it at all! It was complete rubbish, and a waste of time and money. I really wish I had not gone myself, and if I’d (2) have read the reviews, I’d have given it a miss. I’ve been going to the cinema regularly (3) since for at least six years, and that was by far the worst film I (4) had have seen up to now – it’s (5) a such a terrible film I can’t understand how or why they decided to make it. (6) Apart of from everything else, I was so bored! So in you might consider (7) to go going, you know my opinion now!
Anyway – enough of my complaints – and in spite of my disappointment with this particular film I haven’t actually gone off films in general! So on a different topic – I know that you are (8) interested for in live music gigs, and I wondered whether (9) might you you might like to come with me to the open-air concert in the park next Saturday? It’ll be great, and all the others are going. Let me (10) know it what you think – but unless I hear from you by Friday I’ll assume you can’t make it. I’m attaching some information about the concert with this email so that you can see who is playing, and we can get the tickets on the night.
So that’s all for now – speak to you soon.
All the best,
