Letter 1

Hello dear Jake, I am very glad to know you! I am really happy that you want to speak with me. I hope we will have long and interesting talk. And so can I introduce myself. As you see my name is Lena. I am 29 years old. I was born 3d of March in small Ukrainian city Krasniy Luch in Lugansk region. I was born in very happy family, I have good parents, who love me and my younger brother Oleg. Our family is just typical Ukrainian family: mother, father, my brother and I. And do you have a big family? We live in a big own house and I have a cat, a parrot and a dog; they are also the members of our family. I am early became a big girl (at 13 years) because my parents all days are on the work, so all house was on me. My mother is a manager; she is very communicative and active. My father is a driver and he is in long travels often. I am a designer of my own clothes. My friends always ask me to make them new models of clothes. It is not only my work, it is also my hobby. Are you creative person? Do you like active spending time? I am very open, and active woman. I don’t like to be alone and to sit on one place. I am very friendly girl and I have many friends.
Do you have many friends and how do you spend free time? I like big companies and go with my friends to the cinema, theatre, restaurants.
Every week, when it is warm, my friends and I go on the nature: play games, swim… I like to laugh and jokes. All my friends always say me that I don’t have problems because all time I am happy. I think that I even tempered, I can be calm. Sometimes I can lose my tempo and be sad and angry. It is not often. I like to listen all music( romantic, pop, jaz…).Every morning I turn on music, dance and all my day is very good. Sometimes I like to dream about my life. When I was small, I wrote my imagines on the paper, put it in the box and under my bed. I think that these things soon will be not only in dreams. And do you believe in dreams? Well, I am afraid I am too much talk now. I don’t know how to finish my letter. OK, I will just say you goodbye. I will be waiting for your letter. Best wishes, Lena.
