E-mail Writing

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


Dear Jim,

I want to thank you again for your recent hospitality. It was really 
generous of you to invite Barbara and me to stay with you for a few 
days in your house in Nice. We had a wonderful time. The weather was 
great, the beaches were fabulous and your infinity swimming pool is 
sensational. I have never had such fabulous meals in my entire life.

However, what made the trip so wonderful was the way you looked after 
us. You and Sally make the ideal hosts. You are both warm and witty 
and tremendous fun to be with. I cannot thank you enough.

I've been thinking over the suggestions you made about ways in which 
our companies can work more closely together. I can see a lot of sense 
in what you said, particularly at a time of economic difficulty. Why 
don't we arrange a meeting of our senior people?

Once again, thank you.




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.
