Letter 1

Hello my new friend Ricky ! My name is Elena. I am very glad to get acquainted with you. And I hope we can become good friends. I am not very good at using internet but anyway I decided it is a good way to get new friends. That is why I want to explain the reason why I am here right now. It is possible I will visit your country soon and I made my mind to get acquainted with a person from your country. And at this point I am writing to you. I have never been abroad and I don't have friends outside Russia. I really want to know more about you.
Could you please tell me about you, about your lifestyle in the next letter. I hope it is not difficult for you. I will also write about myself. It is interesting to find out about your family, maybe about your job, friends and hobby. Ok, I am 28 years old. And I am sure it is a good age for a lady. Because I am still young but nevertheless have got a good life experience. My height - 170 sm and my weight 55 kg. You know I am fit because I like sports. One of the most important things is to look after myself .In a sound mind ,a sound body. I am sending my photos so you can see me. You know I am not very photogenic. The photos are usually not very beautiful. But they are important for correspondence so one can see another. I hope you will like me. By the way I am looking forward to see your photos in the next letter. It is very interesting for me to see a person you writing to. So I want to ask you a few questions so we will know each other better. What about sport? Alcohol? Smoking? Please tell me about your habits. As for me I am an only child in the family and I don't have my own kids but I have a dream. I have a dream to build my own family and have wonderful children. My father died when I was a child. I really miss him. My mother has been growing me since I was 2 years old and she taught me alone. My mother works in hospital. She has got a good job. She has been working in a hospital for a long time and she knows a lot of people. She is respected in our city. I have got a few best girl friends. I spend much of my spare time with them. They say I have a good sense of humor. I like to laugh at a good joke. I am a cheerful person so my friends do. I live in Krakovo. It is a small town. It is situated 450 km far from Moscow. I think this information will help you to know me better. I am looking forward to know about you, you job, your city. I don't have bad habits, I don't smoke. I am sure it is important for a lady not have bad habits. When gathering together with friends I can drink a glass of wine but not more. I am really keen on cooking. I usually cook fish soup, borsch, salads. You can write about your favourite dish, or maybe your cooking experience. I personally like flowers. They really make our life more beautiful-at home, outside, at work. Oh yes I have forgotten to tell you about my job. I work with children and I really like my job. I am a teacher of a foreign language at school. I teach little children English and Russian language. I think that is enough about me. I has written a really big letter. I hope you are not tired of my little letter. So what do you do? Where do you work? Please tell me about your interests. I am really looking forward to your reply. I hope my letter will not be lost with no attention. I will read your letter with pleasure and will surely reply. Elena

Letter 2

Hello Ricky ! I am very glad to get your letter. You are interested in me) And that is good news for me. I was afraid to see negative reaction from your side. I have never had friends via internet before.
And that scared me. But you are a good man. I see that in your letter.
That means you have found something in me and maybe want to know each other better. I wrote about my life on the whole in my first letter.
You already know I live in Krakovo. It is a usual small town in Russia. But I love it so much. I love to have a walk on its tiny but comfy streets, beautiful parks among the river. You know I like to walk, together with my friends or alone. When I am outside alone I dream. Dream about future life. Where everything is good, I have a good job that brings pleasure and good income. I dream that I will meet my love. No doubt I had close relationships. But they ended with nothing behind. Many Russian men are rude and I always wanted to be loved, to feel warmth. I think everything will be alright. And what do you dream about? Do you like just to sit and dream? I like to see new films in the cinema, I also like to read. And what about you? Please tell me what films and books do you like? I am really interested in it. What do you do in your spare time. Maybe I ask too many questions.
But knowing more about you is interesting for me. By the way, about my city. I think you can find it on the map easily. You can look an arrangement of my city, having passed on this link!
And again shortly about myself. My favourite sports is swimming. I am good at swimming. From time to time I go to the swimming pool. My favourite colors are pink and blue. My favourite flower is a tulip.
And what about you? Do you like your job? Do like what you do? I am sure that is important. It is important to love you job. Then you job will bring pleasure. Do you agree with me? In my first letter I wrote about the opportunity to visit your country. Yes, that is true. I work as a teacher. I am a young teacher and I am a successful girl)… That is not shy but anyway. I studied in the university to get this specialty. I also studied other foreign languages. My English proficiency is quite good. And I can easily learn another foreign language. I don’t doubt at it. I like my job. Earlier everything was alright and the salary was worthy. But now everything changed. Maybe the economic crisis caused this. Russia was deeply influenced by it and also my job too. But I am an optimist and I believe in bright future. And recently they have offered me a new job in your country.
That is very prospective and a good salary. I have thought about it much. Firstly I was afraid to go to another country alone and I denied that offer. But later I made my mind to begin a new life and I agreed with that offer. Now I am waiting for arranging on all the aspects with my job. But I don’t know when exactly. Soon I will be able to go to your country and work in a school. I will teach kids Russian language. I really want to find worthy job that will bring pleasure and good income. But please let’s not speak about money. I believe in bright future and every man should build his own future. Do you agree with me? What do you think about it? I want to know your opinion. I think you have understood the reason of my letter. I want to get acquainted with you. I will come to your country and will not be alone. I will know you. And maybe we will have a future where we are together. Are you against it? OK. I will end my letter for today. It is also as big as the previous. But I want to tell you so much. I hope you understand this. And I hope you will patient enough to read this big letter from an unknown girl from Russia. I am waiting for your letter Elena!

Letter 3

Hello my dear Ricky !! Thanks for your photo! I am very glad to get your letter. How are you? Is everything alright? I am alright. Today the weather is fine. The sun shines brightly. I like such weather. How is the weather by your side? I will begin my letter with a story about my family and me. I think this is important for our correspondence. I want to tell much about my life. Ricky I also ask you to write more about yourself, your life and your family. It is always interesting for me. And in this way we will know each other better. Do you agree?
I have already written I live with my mom. We live in a one room apartment. But there is enough space for both of us. This is a small and comfy flat. My mother is a very kind, sweet, helpful woman. She is respected at her job. She has been always been my best friend. And we always understand each other. I love my mom very much. Unfortunately, my father passed away when I was a small girl. Ricky can you tell me about your parents. It is very interesting. My mother and I like to cook together. She taught me many recipes of dishes. I am very good at making different salads, meat dishes, soups and many others. I think my creations are very tasty. I like cooking simply because it is a creative process. But sometimes I don’t have enough spare time for cooking. My work requires much time. But I am fond of my profession. I want to continue doing my job. I wrote about it to you. Now I am looking through several offers of working in schools in your country.
Four schools offered me a job. But firstly I want to see them. And only then choose the best option for me. I think this is right. Do you agree? But now it is early to speak about it. I really hope to see you some day)…And you can give a good advice) Ricky. I am very glad to tell you about me again. Hope you enjoyed reading my message. I feel our correspondence is good and it will continue further. I am waiting for your answer. Your Elena!

Letter 4

Hi my new best friend Ricky !!! How are you? How is your job? I hope everything is alright. I can confidently say you are my best friend. I feel our friendship is continuing. I see you want to communicate with me. I also want to communicate with you. I have many friends here. My attitude towards them is good and to you good too. I like you. I would say that there is some extraterrestrial force between us. And it attracts us. Don’t you think so? I want to correspond with you. I want to write to you every minute. But it is impossible. You and I are busy people. I have only a couple of minutes to write you a letter. But I have an idea. If you give me your phone number I will try to call you.
OK? I will wait for your phone number so I can hear your voice. This is important for me. I understand we know each other not for a very a long time. We have written only a couple of letters to each other. But I hope you will not deny me and soon I will call you and hear your voice! Well… Ricky you may think that a young and beautiful lady and still not married?! Young and beautiful) not shy)… But I think this is true). And I hope you also agree with my words?) Ricky. I have not met my ideal man but I am sure it will happen soon. I feel it. I had relationships earlier. But that was not love. I can’t have relationship with a man without being loved. That is not right. Do you agree? That is the reason I am alone now. That is the reason I am looking for the real love Ricky. Please tell me about your past relationships with women. I want to know what kind of person you are.
Do you understand Ricky? I will wait for your reply and your number.
Yes! I am a persevering person)… Not only writing letters is important for me but also having a real conversation. I am sure you will write soon. I am waiting impatiently for your letter and will surely reply!


Letter 5

I think you realize that this is an important decision in my life and I could not make up my mind weighing all pros and cons. I shared my ideas with my mother. I told her all about us. She smiled and understood me. My mother can always understand me. She approves of my decision. She trusts you. She thinks you are a very good and honest man. And you can show me you country and meet me. I think also so. I want to write more about my plans for the future. I will speak with my Director. They have been offering me to go to Uk for a long time. And I decided to agree. And this is due to you. I will tell my Director that I agreed to work in Uk.

We will arrange some points with those schools where I will possibly work. I will have to make a choice. I will come to you and we together will think about it. Will you help me with advice?

You know I decided to change my present life and the future and I made my mind to go to Uk. I will work there in your country. And this is my last decision. I got up earlier today in the morning, went to school so I could speak with the director of the school before the lessons started. He was already on his working place. We spoke once again and I told him about my decision and he supported me. We spoke like we were friends. He is a good and experienced person. He picked up the phone and called the Ministry of Education. The director asked them to start the registration of all the necessary documents for me. He arranged some points so it would be possible for me to go to Uk, they will make a working visa for me and an international passport. They will also book the ticket to Uk, firstly to Moscow and the hotel room there. That was a long conversation. We discussed my trip, documents and about money.
The Ministry of Education and our school will give money for the registration of the documents and booking the tickets. They promised that everything will be ready soon. I think everything works out and soon I will pack my luggage for the coming trip. I am very glad and happy. I believe that such a chance comes only once in a life and I should use this opportunity. I think you are also very glad that I decided to come to you! Ricky please write about the latest news, what interesting is happening in your life? I think we will see each other soon and I want to know more about your life) OK here I am coming to an end with this letter and tomorrow I will share with you with the latest news of my preparation.

Letter 8

Hello my dearest Ricky !
I am very glad to read your letter. Now I can say with pleasure that I am in Moscow. I got there in the morning on the bus and stayed at the hotel. Spent some time for the rest. Now I am going to visit the embassy to have a conversation. Today I will pass it and get my documents. I found out about the internet cafe with the help of hotel workers. It is not far from the hotel and I can easily come to the internet cafe. And firstly I decided to write you a letter and only then go to the embassy. I will try to write another letter in the evening. But the best way is to have a real telephone conversation. I think I can call you and we will speak about the meeting. This or that way wait for my letter or a call. Now I will go to the embassy and then go to the airport so I can see what flights are available. I will buy the ticket at once. Wait for my call or a letter. Everything is going to be alright. I am sure in it. And very soon I will fly on the plane to you. Waiting for your letter.
Yours Elena!

Letter 9

Hello my dear Ricky ! How are you? Today the weather in Moscow is fine. How is the weather in your city? I have good news. Yesterday I visited a hospital and got a medical insurance. It took little time, it is just a formality. I paid some money for the insurance and in 20 minutes I got the papers. Then I went to the embassy, I should say that was not an easy journey. Moscow is a huge city. And it took 4 hours to get to the embassy! I could walk along the whole city using this time)))… So I got there and successfully passed the conversation, I got my visa and passport. I am very glad that I made all this so quickly! And now I have got all the necessary documents for my trip to you! I am very happy! I feel like starting a new life! We will meet very soon! And I am worried about it now. How will it be? I imagine our first meeting, it is so exciting. What do you feel now? How do you imagine our meeting in the airport? Please write me about it . Today I had a lot of business and didn’t manage to get to the airport.
Tomorrow I shall go to the airport. I shall learn about next flights.
And I wish to buy the ticket at once. I am so glad that everything is going well and this fact is pleasing. I hope you are glad too! Today was a hard day and I am tired. I need to go to the hotel to have some rest. I really want to come to you as soon as possible. Before going to sleep I am going to dream about our first day, I have already written to you about it).. Tomorrow is going to be a hard day too. I will write you what I find out in the airport. I will also try to call you. Wait for my call. I will call you at 12 up to 16 in your time .
Wait for my letter and the call. I will also wait for your letter. With love!
Yours Elena!!!

Letter 10

Ricky ! Hello dear! The day started very well. I was in good mood but after some hours it got worse. I will tell why. Now I am in the airport, great there is an internet cafe. I wrote that today in the morning I will go to the airport to buy the tickets so I can fly to you. I knew an approximate ticket cost. It is not so cheap but I had money to buy it. And I did not doubt. Today I will write my flight number and the exact date and the time of our meeting. I got here early in the morning and made my way to the cashier. I learned the ticket cost, it is 435 dollars. I had such sum of money but they said that it is a one way ticket and I had to buy two way tickets, to get to you and return. That is the rule. I have to buy the ticket to come to you and to fly back, that is the law of my country, and I had to buy them at once. It is a guarantee that I will not stay to live there when my visa comes to an end. That is the order and I have to follow it. It is a great surprise for me. I have never been abroad and I have never thought about it. Ricky! Now I have 450 dollars. That is enough to buy 1 ticket. I don’t have another 430 dollars to buy the tickets to come to you and return. Ricky I ask to understand me. Now I am alone in this big city. I can not find such a big sum of money right now. That is impossible. I don’t have that 430 dollars and I ask you to lend me these money. There is only one step till we meet each other. I need to fly to you but I do not have that money. I hope you can help me. Please send 430 dollars. I will give them back when I get new job. I will work hard and I will earn soon. I hope you understand me right. I write this letter with tears on my face. It is a shame for me. I have never asked for help and I always relied only on myself but now I can do nothing to change this situation. I have to write this letter to you and ask for help. I wait for your understanding, now I will try to call you and explain the situation. I have created the structure on yahoo messenger. We can speaks On-line. I think you too can establish yahoo messenger. Then it will be easier to us to communicate. Here mine yahoo ID. kabanovaelena@yahoo.com. I will wait for your letter. I will wait for your help, Yours Elena!
