PET Writing – Letter about a film

TASK

This is part of a letter you receive from a friend.

In your next letter, can you please tell me about a film you like? What’s it about? Why do you like it?

Now write a letter answering your friend’s questions. Write your letter in about 100 words.

LETTER

Dear Paul,

Thanks for your letter. Answering your question, a film I’ve recently seen I quite enjoyed is Interstellar. It’s a science fiction movie starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway set in a post-apocalyptic world where some kind of dust makes life on Earth almost impossible. The main character, a former astronaut, travels to space to find a suitable planet where humankind can settle.

I really liked the special effects and the way the plot develops into a complex theory on how we understand time and space.

Watch the film! I’m sure you’ll like it!

See you,

Rocío

Introduction to the movie and the books

The Maze Runner is the first novel in a series of four books (one of them a prequel) by American writer James Dashner.

The novel opens with Thomas, the main character, arriving in the Glade (a vast expanse of land enclosed by high walls) with no memories except his name. There he meets other teenage boys who have appeared in the Glade very much in the same way as Thomas and who also have no memories of their pasts except for their names. The Gladers have created a community where each of the boys has a task in 12 different departments headed by 12 Keepers. A boy named Alby is the head of the Keepers as well as the oldest and the leader of all the Gladers. Continue reading “The Maze Runner – Movie Worksheet”

FCE Writing an Informal Email

TASK:

Dear Chloe,

Thanks for your email. It’s so great to hear from you! School’s just finished so I’m trying to make up my mind over what to do this summer.

I’m travelling to New York next week and I’m sure it’s going to be awesome! I’ll probably look in on Sarah while I’m there because it’s been ages since we last met. As soon as I get back, I’m planning to visit my grandma in Cordoba. She has this amazing country house where she keeps animals and a huge swimming pool to relax. After that, I’m not really sure of what I’ll do, maybe go to the beach for a few days or just stay at home doing nothing for a change.

Anyway, what I’m sure about is that I won’t be working at all. I have holidays for almost two months and I plan on making the most out of them.

Please, write as soon as possible and let me know what your plans for the summer are. Maybe we can get together soon? Let me know if you are free some time next week. It’d be great to see you again!

Lots of love,

Rocío
