Text A. A Letter to a Friend .

1.Read and translate the text.

Dear Victor, 23rd June 2003 .

I’m very sorry I couldn’t write to you last week, because I was very busy. At last I’ve taken my Literature examination and I’m quite free. When my wife takes her last exam next week, we’ll go to Yalta for a holiday. I hope we shall have a good time there. You know how we love the sea. We are going to swim, lie on the beach, and sunbathe two or three hours a day. You write that you can’t forget the holiday which we spent there two years ago. I can’t forget it either. I’m awfully sorry you will not be able to go with us this year.

When are you going to have your holiday? Is your wife’s health still poor? I hope that she will soon be all right. How long do you intend to stay in the country? Is there a river and a wood there?

I’ll be back early in August in order not to miss my mother’s birthday. She will be sixty on the tenth of August, you know.

I think I’ll be able to go to see you some time at the end of the month.

I shall be very glad to hear from you before we leave.

Love to you all,

Boris.

From 25 to 42 points –Imaginative: You possess a good dose of adventurous spirit and a good deal of courage, but you don’t like to get into trouble.
