Writing 7

Read the email carefully and check out any vocabulary you don’t know. 

Dear David,

Thank you very much for your email of the 4th August (or August 4 as  
you would say.)

I’m afraid I was away on holiday (or vacation as you would say.)

You want me to arrange a meeting in London for week 47. This should be  
possible but I will have to confirm this after I have spoken to the  
other participants. Some are still away but I should be able to get  
back to you by the end of next week.

I will be in New York in week 34 and I suggest that we meet for  
breakfast one day so that we can go over an agenda for the London  
meeting, if it is definitely going ahead.



Now try these two exercises. (You will probably need to click at the top of your browser to allow these programs to run.) 

What comes next?

In the first exercise, you have to rewrite the text in the correct order. You have to choose ‘what comes next’.


In the second exercise, you have to fill in all the missing words. Tip- try ‘the’ first.
