Задание 39

You have 20 minutes to do this task.

You have received a letter from your English-speaking pen-friend Tom who writes:

        Last month our class went to Washington to visit the National Museum of American History. It was my first visit there and it was fun! How often do you go to museums with your class, if at all? Which museum is your favourite or what museum would you like to visit? Why do you think people should go there?

      This summer we plan to go hiking with my parents.


Write a letter to Tom.

In your letter

  • answer his questions
  • ask 3 questions about his summer plans

Write 100 – 140 words.

Remember the rules of letter writing.

Variant 1







Dear Tom,

Hi! Thanks for your letter. Sounds like you had a great time at the museum!

Actually, we don’t go to the museums very often. Last time our class visited the War Museum. It is a large battlefield. We saw different types of weapons of that period of time and even walked through a recreated war trench.

As my hobby is painting, I prefer visiting art galleries. My favourite museum is the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. Also, I dream to visit the Prado Museum in Spain someday. Such tours help to develop sense of beauty and broaden your horizons.

By the way, how long will the trip last? What are your plans for August? Do you intend to take part in dancing battles this summer?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Variant 2







Dear Tom,

I got your letter yesterday and decided to write back straightaway.

You asked me about how often our class visits museums. As a rule, we go there in spring and in autumn. Last autumn we visited a local museum in the open air. We saw an old mill. The guide told us about how our ancestors got flour. I’ve learnt lots of new things I’ve never known before. I think people obviously should visit such museums in order to get closer to the history of the region they live.

You know, I’m keen on detectives that’s why I’d like to visit the International Spy Museum in Washington.

By the way, when does your hiking trip start? Are you going to the ocean this summer? Will you take up surfing there?

Keep in touch.

Best wishes,

Valery  (142)
