Dear Grandma,
We arrived in Budva, the old town in Montenegro. We're having a beautiful time here. 
The hotel's great. We're staying on the fourth floor. 
The weather's lovely, hot and sunny. Dad's fishing at the moment, Minja's swimming and Mum's sunbathing. 
There are lots of shops here. Mum can't wait to go shopping. 
In the evening we walk in the central streets. There are lots of restaurants and cafes. I'm going to taste great local food. 
I love Budva.
See you soon,

As a warm up for the revision of the past simple, I asked my pupils to finish the sentences: When I was 7 I had a ... . I didn't have a ... . I couldn't ..., but I could ... . My favourite food was ... . My favourite things were ... . 

When I was 7 I had a bike. I didn't have a toy plane. I couldn't swim, but I could ride a bike. My favourite food was chicken. My favourite things were my dog and my toys.

Pen Friends

Since my pupils, especially those younger ones, adore drawing and fun activities, I've decided to join Cambridge English Penfriends and help them connect with pupils around the world through such activities. I hope they'll have fun making new friends and develop their English language skills along the way. 

If you want, you too can rate our drawings on the following site:
