Dear Sissie:

     How are you doing? I heard that you got the only chance in your school to study abroad in America. That was brilliant and I really admire you! But you said you didn't want to go because you didn't want to leave your parents and was afraid of a new life. Be confident and brave! You got to believe that you are strong enough to study abroad yourself. Anyway, it's up to you. And you really did your best.

      I am fine in GZ. Friends don't make me angry, parents are still kind and patient, and I keep drinking milk to grow taller although I know that it doesn't work. I'm a little busy because my Art teacher is going to hold a fashion show and everybody needs to design some clothes. But I have passion on what I am doing. No big deal.

Yours truly.


Dear Josh:


    How are you? Are you still teaching students English now? When I was in Grade 7, I didn't have class with you, but I could not help think the time we communicate together. You sometimes gave me some sweet songs to listen, such as The Chipmunk Song. You also watched the movie Ice Age 4 with me. At first, I only knew how to read, after talking to you, I knew how to speak lively and confidently. I think your English teaching is pretty good, I knew a lot when I talked and chatted and wrote with you.

    Now, I studied in a Junior High School and lived a happy life. My English is became better and better. Thank you for your fantastic teaching. If I have some questions on English, I will ask you by e-mail. Hope you will bu happy every day.
