Dear Gloria,

It was nice to hear from you again. I can’t wait to see you in Moscow!

Guess what! We’re going to take a hot air balloon ride above the city that’s why bring a hoodie and a pair of jeans in order not to get cold.

What about visiting the Bolshoi Theatre? I could order the tickets beforehand.  Also I think that St. Basil’s Cathedral which is a famous landmark is a must to see for every visitor.

I’ll be glad if you get me a book with pictures of London and some magnets for my collection.

        …I’m going to visit Russia in July. I’ve read a lot about Moscow but I’m especially interested in its history. What historical sites and museums would you recommend me to visit? Is museums entrance fee high in Moscow? Are there any weekdays when the entrance is free for students? Do they allow taking pictures inside?

Dear John,

I was glad to receive your letter. Hope the exam was a piece of cake for you!

I'm looking forward to seeing you at my place! We are going to have an unforgettable fortnight in Moscow. I’m also keen on history so we could start sightseeing from the Kremlin and its tremendous cathedrals, Red Square and the Historical Museum. I’m sure St. Basil’s Cathedral will strike your imagination. You won’t regret the idea of spending a day out in Tzaritsyno national park, either.

As a rule, taking pictures is allowed but you shouldn’t use flash. The ticket prices aren’t very high (are quite reasonable). Unfortunately there are no special days for students when the admission is free.

By the way, what mark did you get in the exam? What airport will you arrive? Is it a night flight?

Write me soon.

  By the way, he is fond of sports…

Write 100-140 words.

Remember the rules of letter writing.







Dear Ann,

Hi! I’m very glad to hear from you again. I think, your friend is really lucky to spend a fortnight in such magnificent city!

Without any doubt he should visit Red Square and see the Cathedral of  St. Basil the Blessed, the Kremlin with its famous clock tower, the Spasskaya Tower, the Tzar-Cannon and the Tzar-Bell. My favourite place here is the Armoury Chamber which is the world-famous treasure house. (My favourite places are The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and the State Tretyakov Gallery.)

He might spend a night out visiting one of the numerous theatres or night clubs. For example, my friend and I like hanging out at the FAQ-Café-Creative -Studio. They often hold very exciting body-art parties here.

By the way, what kind of sport is your friend fond of? How long has he been going in for sport? Has he got any sport awards?

Write me soon.
