WRITING FCE 3


Dear Sir/Madam,


The reason I am writing to you is to receive more detailed information about the Ivy Grange Health Farm. I wonder if you would mind telling me first of all where is it?
I would also like to know if there are places available in August? And how much does the stay for a week cost? I reckon drinking isn't allowed, although I get more sure if you tell me.
Not only that but also I would like to know if you organise any kind of trip; I want to say, for instance, boat trips where everyone has to row.
As you say in the advertisement there are individualised health and fitness programmes, so I hope you might also let me know about what type of exercise it is practised there.


I would like to thank you in advance for this information and I looking forward to receiving your reply.

I am, yours faithfully

María



WRITING FCE 2

I am writing in order to complain about the airline Maple Air because of your flight.
The first thing I would like to draw your attention to is I had a late boarding, I was close to miss a special arrangement I had. Not only that but also your staff were quite rude, I have never talk to such this kind of personnel; you shouldn't promote you have a friendly, well-trained staff if you haven't.
The food was also unacceptable, you didn't serve me vegetarian food, while you say there is a good choice of food, as I couldn't eat anything during the flight, I got sick.
Furthermore, according to your advertisement, you offer the latest in entertainment, I watched an old film, though. And finally, you didn't have any medicine when I got sick.



I therefore suggest that I be given a full refund and I suggest that you replace the advertisement as well.



WRITING FCE 1

Dear Webster,
Have you ever thought about learning English in a successful academy in Manchester? Me, I have. Nowadays, English is the most important language ever spoken, so it is necessary for almost everything, to work, to can communicate... The reason why I'm writing is to thank you in advance for have given me the opportunity of learning in your academy.

With regard to the stay, I would like the option stay individually with local families. I think we will learn most individually, as if we stay all together, we will speak Spanish among us. I would further suggest making a gymkhana, where we have to speak with the inhabitants and we must get into, for instance, the Tube.

Would you also mind informing me about the weather? What clothes should we take?
Thanking you in advance for this information.


I am, yours sincerely.

PLASTIC, THE BIGGEST THREAT FOR OUR SEAS

Resultado de imagen de plastic in the seaResultado de imagen de plastic in the seaDoes anyone really know how the impact of plastic will affect the world in the next years if we don't do anything? Plastic is always present in our daily lives. From credit card to plastic bags that we use in the supermarkets; almost all is made from plastic and we aren't really concerned about it. To begin with, I'm going to talk about plastic, then I'll move to explain the advantages and disadvantages of using plastic. And finally, I'm going to give you my opinion about this issue.

Plastic is the most common material which is known and used. One of its characteristics is that it has a low electrical and thermal conductivity, it is also malleable. Moreover, it has a low cost, so as the world is moved by money, plastic is the most used material.

For me, plastic hasn't too many advantages to be used. It is light, strong and cheap. In addition, it gives the food it is in contact with a peculiar taste and it is also a good container to save cleaning products. However, the disadvantages are fewer, although they are worse. For instance, it kills turtles that eat it as they think it is food, plastic also damages their ecosystem. Not only that, but also its use affects our health as we breath the chemicals substances.

All in all, we won't stop using plastic, although I'd like to say that we must reduce it. If we don't do anything, what an awful world we will have in the next years! For that problem a lot of campaigns have been set up, for example, the Let's do it! Cleaning up the Mediterranean coast association is a project where tens of thousands of volunteers from countries all around the Mediterranean Sea participate in cleaning up the world. I believe that we have to start raising awareness of the impact of plastic in the world and then take action.

According to Collins' dictionary, “debris” means the remains of something broken or destroyed. And that word comes from French.

DON'T LEAVE IT FOR TOMORROW! START NOW AND YOU'LL BE READY FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR.




                    Resultado de imagen de procrastinate things

Today, procrastinating things we have to do is a very common phenomenon. Not only teenagers, but also children and adult people leave things that they can do at the moment to do them afterwards. First of all I am going to write about why this happens, then, I'll move on to explain our waste of time on holidays. And finally, I'm going to give you my opinion about what we must do.

We always think that if we can do things later, it is foolish to do them at that very moment , so we leave things for the last moment. Not only this happens with activities, but also with exams. For instance, I usually study the day before the exam or even, the night before. That's because we have other extra activities, for example, the school of languages or the music school, so we have less time to spend on school chores. However, I'd like to say that if we organize our time, we can spend time on other things.

On the contrary, when we are on holidays, we have a lot of time, although we don't spend it very well. During the summer holidays, we usually go to the beach, spend a lot of time with friends or even, we go to other towns' parties. I reckon that in the summer time it is too warm to do any kind of intellectual activity, we are tired even if we don't do anything. On the one hand, I understand that on holidays we have to relax since we have spent all the year studying and getting up early . On the other hand, I also reckon that we should do something on holidays not to forget the knowledge we have obtained during all the school year.

All in all, I believe it is so important to advance work when we have enough time as during the academic year we must study hard to get good marks and that is a bit difficult if we spend time on other things as reading books or making comments because of our waste of time on holidays. So, get ready for the next school year!
