I'm sorry I couldn't reply straightaway. I was busy with my schoolwork.
I'm only 16 and I can't help relying on my parents now, but most of my friends and I dream to be independent. As soon as I leave school, I'll go to university. If I find a part-time job, I'm ready to leave my family and start living on my own. Of course, it's hard financially to rent a house or an apartment in Russia, especially if you are a student and don't have much money, but I'm prepared for this.
Well, I'm happy to hear you've finally fulfilled your dream – a trip to Scotland! How long were you there? What places did you visit? Did you try on a kilt?
Oh, I have to go now. Mum wants me to do some shopping for her.
Hope to hear from you soon,
he letter to the friend
I`m Kseniya and I live in Stary Oskol in Russia. I`m eight years old and I`m in the second form. I like drawing and studying English. I also go to the swimming pool. My town is very beautiful, but I dream to visit London and to draw a picture of it. Hope to hear from you soon.
