11. Read the letter. What is Jenny planning to do?
I’ve got some great news. Richard and I are going on holiday for a whole month. Guess where – Hawaii!
We’re leaving on 1st June. We both love swimming, so we’re going to stay at a fabulous hotel right next to the beach. I am going to relax as much as possible because I’m quite tired after working hard all this year.
We are coming back from our holidays on 30th June, and I’ve got lots of plans for the rest of the summer. First, I’m going to work at a café because I want to earn some extra money and buy a new car. I am also going to join a gym to lose some weight. Finally, I want to find a better job in autumn, so I’m going to start a computer course.
Oh, I nearly forgot! On 16th August we’re having a garden party to celebrate Richard’s birthday. Please try to come. You’re welcome to spend the night here.
