  1. Dear Licia, thank you for letter. I’m happy to hear you. In this letter, I speak you about subjects that I study. I’m at university now, I study subjects that are a bit different than those of the high school. I studied sociology, political science, psychology, private, criminal and costitutional law and many other interesting subjects; but my favourite among them is criminal law. I like foreign languages and I think there are very important and interesting. I think its are important because you can speak with people of other countries and know a lot of about their culture.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing you again.

  2. Dear Cinzia,
    How are you? In this year, I have began the first year of University and I have chosen the sociology faculty. We are doing a lot of subjects: sociology, history, economy and others. My favourite subject is Sociology because it is very interesting for me. They deals with the facts of the society. The next week , I have the first exam of Sociology, I’m very nervous but I believe that they will be fine. An other subject that I like is History. I like that since I went at high school. The teacher also explains his subject in a beautiful way. I very like the University, I’m very happy to have choosen it, these gives several possibilities and makes many people known.

    Dear Bryan,
    How are you? I hope you’re fine. This year I’m in the first year of University: the class that I have chosen is L40 and here I study different subject for example Sociology, English and contemporary history. The balance between study and work is difficult but I try with all of myself to give the best. Right now I like all subjects that I am studying but my favourite is contemporary history. During the lesson I love the explanations of the most important historical moments in particular i am so fascinated by the First and Second World War. I believe that during my university career I will always find more interesting subjects and I hope to graduate soon to be able to work.
    I Hope to see you soon.

    I am happy to have received a letter from you. As You know, I live in a small town with 7000 hinabitants, and Here there aren’t so Many things to do. Generally I spend my weekend with my friend : we organize dinners at home or in the countryside, or we go to the only pub where there is music and and People. In alternative, we move to the city, Catania, where there is much more to do: there are restaurants and clubs of all kinds, there are many people and you can choose to spend a more or less peaceful evening. In conclusion, in the city there are many more alternatives and you never get bored. I hope to see you soon,

  5. Dear Logan,
    How are you? I’m fine. I write this letter to talk about what I usually do on weekends. I can talk to you what I usually did on weekends before this pandemic period, because if I tell you my current weekend I would only answer that I’m at home and I go to church on Saturday evening.
    Before this period, on Friday evening I was training to foootball. On Saturday I got up and I followed the lessons in the morning, after lunch I went to gym and in the afternoon I studied. In the evening I went to Church and after that I went out with my friends. When I went out I didn’t have a usual place, even if we usually went to some pubs or someone’s home. On Sunday I got up very late because the night before I come back to home late. Sometimes in the afternoon I had the football matches and in the evening I saw the football matches in TV with my father.
    I hope that the situation will return as before.
    See you soon.

    1. Another good effort, Luca, but still with a number of small mistakes – 7/10

      Dear Logan,
      How are you? I’m fine. I am writing this letter to tell you about what I usually do on weekends. I can only talk to you about what I used to do on weekends before this pandemic period, because if I tell you about my current weekend, all I can say is I that I’m at home all the time except when I go to church on Saturday evening.
      Before this period, on Friday evening I did football training. On Saturday I got up and I followed the lessons in the morning. Then, after lunch, I went to the gym and in the afternoon I studied. In the evening I went to Church and after that I went out with my friends. When I went out I didn’t always go to the same place, even if we usually went to a pub or to someone’s home. On Sunday I got up very late because the night before I came back home late. Sometimes in the afternoon I had a football match and in the evening I watched the football matches on TV with my father.
      I hope that the situation will return to normal soon.
      See you soon.

  6. Dear Alessia,
    How are you? I’m fine. At the weekend, I usually do a lot of different things. For example, I go to the cinema with my friends or I often want to try a new restaurants. When I’m sad, I like reading a book or watching movies at home and I love relax with music. In my town, there aren’t a lot of things to do because they are very small but when it’s a sunny day with my friends or my family, we go to the beach or the park of my town for a picnic. Those are very fun weekends.
    See you soon

On the evening the majority of people go to the city centre where there are many places to eat and drink and you usually get the chance to meet new people. On Sunday I study all subjects and wash my scooter because I love it, in fact it is always clean.

    Dear Lisa, how are you? I hope you’re fine.
    You asked me to talk to you about a special day which is celebrated in my country every year. I would like to tell you about Liberation Day when we celebrate the liberation of Italy from the Nazi occupation and the fascist regime. Every year on 25th April all Italian people remember this special event. Usually In Italy it is celebrated with special events and parades, tours in the historical centres of the cities and outdoor picnics with family and friends.
    I think this is an important page of history which we must never forget.
    Perhaps next year you can visit me when we are celebrating this special day.
    I’m looking forward to seeing you.

  9. Dear Stefano,
    How are you? I’m fine. You asked me to talk to you about a special day in my country and I’d like to tell you what is celebrated on 15th August every year. This day is called “Ferragosto”, a day we celebrate the Assumption of the Madonna in heaven. The celebration of this special day happens at night between 14th and 15th August.
    There are different kinds of celebration: some people decide to go to the disco by the sea and others decide to follow the traditional celebration and stay on the beach until next morning.
    The traditional celebration begins with the final of the “Ferragostiadi” tournament, a series of team games starting in the week of Ferragosto. Then a hearty dinner begins with cabin neighbours, friends, and relatives. After the dinner everybody waits for the midnight fireworks with games on the beach. The fireworks are usually at sea, but sometimes they are on the beach. At the end of the firework show, the people have a midnight dip and they wait for the sun to rise. In my town, a small boat with a statue of Madonna on board goes along the coast.
    I usually follow the traditional celebration because when I was a child I celebrated it like this with my parents.
    Perhaps next year you can come here when we are celebrating this day.
    See you soon.

    Credo che servirebbe un po’ più di elaborazione delle idee e un po’ più di cura nell’esprimerle.

    Dear Christian,
    What’s up? (molto americano) One of the special days in my country is the Italian Republic Holiday on 2nd June. On this day, Italians celebrate the birth of the Republic in Italy. In every Italian city, there are a lot of events; the most important ones are in Rome. My family usually has lunch all together and we watch the tricolor arrows on TV. I think that this celebration is important because it is a part of Italy’s history and we shouldn’t forget it.
    What do you think about it?
    Tell me about a special day in your country.
    See you soon
    Carmen

  11. Good effort, Gianluca – 8/10

    Dear Roberta,
    How are you? I hope you’re fine. You asked me to tell you about a special day in my country and I think that the most special day in my country is Liberation Day on 25th of April. Everybody celebrates this date because on the 25th of April in 1946 Italy was finally freed from Nazi German domination thanks to the USA army and the Partisans. We spend this day at home with our parents eating a lot and having fun together. I think it is important to celebrate this day with your family because after on this day freedom came back to Italy.
    I hope you will tell me about a special day in your country,
    I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
    See you soon.
    Gianluca
