1.30 Read this friendly letter and write a similar informal e-mail to a key pal.

Dear Fiona,

Thank for your e-mail. It was nice to hear from you again.

Here is a photograph of my brother and me at the beach. We went there last weekend. My dad took the photo. We went by car. The journey took about three hours. We stayed at my aunt’s house.

We had a great time. We made big sandcastles and we swam in the sea. We ate some big ice creams, too. They were delicious. Have you ever been to the beach?

Before we left, I sent you a postcard. Has it arrived yet?

Please write soon. Can you send me a photo of your family, too?

Your friend,
