Hi there!

Subject: Nice to meet you

Hi there!

My teacher asked me to write and tell you what a typical day in my life looked like so I’ll do my best to give you an idea! I get up around 7:00 am, I have breakfast (two slices of toast and a cup of tea) then I get ready and put on my uniform. I make my lunch, and I double-check that my bag is packed. I leave my house at around 8:00 am. I’ve only got a 15-minute walk to school, so I arrive early. I usually chat with my friends, or listen to music with my headphones. Classes begin at 8:45 am.

My timetable changes every day, but classes always finish at 3:25 pm at the latest. Some subjects are compulsory: English, maths, science and PE. I find maths quite difficult but I have to take it so I try my best. Others are optional: I chose French, geography and dancing (dancing is my favourite subject!! I would love to become a dancer).

After school, I get home and chill for a while. Then I complete my homework. Usually the workload is manageable. It was hard to choose a hobby because there was a lot on offer in my school. I’m involved in the drama club on Tuesdays. We are staging a musical, which is great because I can combine my passions of dancing, singing and acting!

I look forward to hearing about your typical day!


PS: you’ll find enclosed a picture of me and my friends. From left to right, here are Kieran, Sally, Niamh, and I. I love them to pieces!

Dear Julie,

How are you? My name’s Alex and I am from Essex, England. I’m 15 years old, how old are you?

I just got back home from school, our teacher asked us to write a letter to our new penpals today and I am very excited about this! I look forward to receiving your letter!

I like school, it’s where all of my friends are! And I get to take an art course there which is great. I’d like to become an artist, sort of like Banksy. I love his work. What do you like to do on your free time?

I have two sisters and I’m the youngest. We get along very well. We like to watch films together, and we go running together once a week with our dog, Lupin. I like to think that we are pretty funny, we have a lot of inside jokes — it does make our parents crazy though because most of the times they don’t understand why we’re laughing so hard. What about you? Do you have any siblings? Or any pets?

I hope to hear from you soon!


Dear Jonathan,

I’m Emma. I’ll be your pen pal this year! I’m 16 and I live in London. How are you?

According to your birth date, you just turned 17! So happy birthday! How did you celebrate?

I hope your school year is going well! What are your favourite subjects? Mine are maths and PE. I just love all kinds of sports, I love running, rock climbing, soccer, basketball, tennis. I’m very outgoing and active. I also love travelling. Last year, I went to Greece and Germany. I am planning a trip to Canada when I turn 18. What do you like to do?

I also like to draw. When I need time to chill and relax, that’s what I do.

I have a younger brother. His name is Liam and he’s 12. We get along very well most of the times. We do have arguments every now and again but nothing too dramatic, just normal sibling stuff. Do you have any brothers and sisters or are you an only child?

I would love to get to know you! Please write soon!
