  1. Dear Amy,
    I received your letter and I’m happy that you want to come to Italy. I advise you to visit Florence, it’s a beautiful city very important for art and culture. There are historical monuments , museums, many craft shops of leather where you can buy some souvenir and you can find a lot of restaurants where to eat the typical food ,the Tuscan cousine is really good.
    I recommend you visit the Florence’s Duomo, Pitti Palace ,Uffizi Gallery, in particular Old Bridge across the river Arno,it’s very suggestive. The best time of year to visit a new city for me is spring or autumn because there is an ideal temperature.
    I was in Florence a few years ago but I would like to go back this spring. If you decide to come in Florence in this time, could be a good opportunity for meet us. Let me know what you think . See you soon .
    Your friend Valeria

  2. Dear Mary,
    I was really happy to receive a letter from you and to know that you want to spend some time in my country. I advise you to visit the beautiful Naples because there are many beautiful places. The best time of year to visit it is summer for the fantastic sea. Infact one of the most amazing places is the Amalfi coast which is famous for its naturalistic beauty. Also there are many rerstaurants where you can taste the typical Neapolitan cuisine, especially their phenomenal pizza.
    I hope you will have a good holiday,
    with love, Elisea.

      1. Question 7. Page 23 Dear Lena,  I think you should spend your weekend for visiting the beautiful city of Rome. I think you should go in spring, cause is not too cold to walk in the city. You could go to the colosseum with a guided tour, so you could stay there for two or three hours. Then you absolutely have to visit the Altar of the Homeland near the Roman Forum. It is so beautiful and suggestive, you will be very satisfied. In the afternoon you could go to visit some shops, if I were you I would go to visit via dei Condotti, with all the famous griff shops in the world. For dinner you could relax to many bars in the center of the city or restaurants, you will have a lot of options. I really hope you will go to Rome, it’s beautiful. 

        With love  Elga

        1. Well done, Elga – 7/10

You could go to the colosseum with a guided tour, so you could stay there for two or three hours. Then you absolutely have to visit the Altar of the Homeland near the Roman Forum. It is so beautiful and suggestive, you will be very satisfied. In the afternoon, you could go to visit some shops. If I were you, I would go to visit via dei Condotti, where you will find all the famous labels from around the world. For dinner, you could relax in one of the many bars or restaurants in the centre of the city. You will have lots of options.

  3. Dear Rosemary,
    Thanks for writing me.
    I advise you to come to Sicily, in Catania.
    If you want to spend a weekend here, you should come in spring. In my opinion this is the best time of year to visit Catania.
    I suggest you go to visit the historic center, take a walk to “Piazza del Duomo” to see the Elephant fountain and the cathedral.
    You must see the gardens “Villa Bellini” perfect to relaxing. Than I suggest you visit the “Faraglioni” that are located in Acitrezza. Finally I also suggest that you go to Etna.
    Let me know if you come here.
    See you soon.

    1. A good effort, Alessandra, but there are a number of small mistakes – 6/10

  5. Dear Bob
    I’m happy about your choice to spend a weekend in a city of my country! . I advise you to go to Rome, because in my opinion is the most interesting city of the Italy. The best time of year to visit it is April, because in this month the weather is mild and you should visit the “Cathedral of Saint Peter” and the “Colosseum” they are fantastic places, and you should go to “Campo dei Fiori”,
    It is an old Roman quarter very popular.
    I hope to you will spend a good Holiday in my Country.
    Love
    Agnese.

    1. Good effort, Agnese – 7/10

      1)…in my opinion, IT is the most…
      2)…the weather is mild. You should visit…
      3)…Roman quarter which is very popular.
      4)…I hope you will have a good…

  6. Good, Rebecca – 4/5

    C’è qualche errore di “traduzione letterale” dall’italiano che devi evitare se puoi: “I hope you do not offend”, “Bring my regards to your family”.

    Dear Emily,
    Thank you very much for your invitation, I was very pleased to receive an email from you. I am very sorry, but I can not come, I will be away for a week because, with my parents, we have decided to surprise my relatives in Turin who we have not seen for a long time, I hope you understand. But I assure you that we will meet again as soon as possible. Have a great weekend and give my regards to your family.
    With love, Rebecca.

  7. A good effort, Giulia – 4/5

    “I liked it very much” si direbbe in seguito a qualcosa già compiuta.
    “By your best friend Giulia” non è usato. Senza “by” già sarebbe meglio, ma chi ha deciso che sei la sua migliore amica? Meglio un semplice “I hope to see you soon.”

  8. Very good, Maria Chiara – 4/5
    Non va bene “Tanks you” e potrebbe espresso meglio quel “I need to take a flight” anche se non è scorretto.

    1. Well done, Alessandra 4/5
      La parte che non funzione bene è questa “I should go in montain”. Vedi perché?

      P.S. Typo: I’can?

  9. Very good, Elisea – 5/5.

    Dear Mary,
    I was really happy to receive an invitation to spend a weekend with you, thank you very much! But, unfortunately, I have to refuse because I have my parents’ wedding anniversary, I’m so sorry. I really hope to see you soon.
    With love,
    Elisea

    1. Very nice, Agnese – 4/5
      Quel ‘will’ non ci sta in un contesto così programmato (tabella oraria). Poi non è chiaro se sei tu a organizzare o solo a partecipare.
      N.B. I can’t MISS this lesson.

        1. Si, anche se sarebbe meglio semplicemente: “I’ve got an important dsance lesson”. Questo ‘to organise’ non è chiaro però.

  10. Very good, Claudia. 5/5
    Di solito usiamo il past simple per riferirci a una lettera ricevuta:
    “I was so happy about/to receive your invitation (‘invite’ è Americano).
    Forse userei “but” al posto di “however”.
    Potresti dire “which is in two weeks” (present simple: futuro da tabella oraria).
    Il tutto verrebbe così:

    Hi Emily. I was so happy to receive your invitation, thank you so much!
    I’m sorry, but I can’t come with you and your family because I have to study for a very hard exam, which is in two weeks. I hope you will forgive me. See you soon.
    With love, Claudia.
