April 20th,...   
Dear Nadia,

Previously, I told you about my favourite pastime. Today, I will tell you about my hometown as you wished in your next letter.

Well, Menton is situated on the eastern coast of France, with an approximate population of 30,000. It is an ideal destination for tourists from all over world, and that is due to several reasons.

To start with, the landscape is beautiful. Wonderful high trees cover a large area of the town apart from some evergreen gardens who embellish the town centre. Besides, the weather is superb the whole year; it is neither hot not cold. Moreover, there are a lot places worth see such as the Roman Church, the museum and the Royal Avenue. All these factors make of Menton a perfect place to spend quiet and enjoyable holidays.

What about your hometown or city? Are there nice places to see? What about the weather? the people? And so on.

By for now,

Task: Write a letter to Julien, answering his questions at the end of the letter and inviting him to visit your city/hometown.

My town
My Town – Newquay
by Alex Howarth, 14

I live in Newquay. It’s a small town on the Atlantic coast in the south of England. It has got great beaches and is the best place to surf in the UK. There are lots of surf schools where you can learn how to surf. I go surfing with my friends every weekend. My favourite place is Fistral Beach.

I love Newquay because there are lots of other things to do as well as surfing. If you like water sports, you can go kayaking, water-skiing or coasteering. Coasteering is different because it is rock climbing, jumping into the sea and swimming in the same activity, but you should always go with a special instructor.

If you like animals you can also visit the Blue Reef Aquarium and see lots of different fish and even sharks. You can also go horse riding on the beach or visit Newquay Zoo. There are lots of other attractions too like mini-golf and bowling. Come and see for yourself!
