<Sergii> Kirsty. I hope you don’t mind if I tell you a bit about myself. As you know, my name is Sergii Bakker and I come from Tallinn in Estonia. I’m here in London because my father works for a British company. We live in Dulwich in south London. It’s a nice part of the city with some lovely houses and parks. I miss my friends in Tallinn but I don’t like Tallinn, especially in the winter when it gets very cold.

England is fantastic for me because I want to be an English teacher and I can spend a lot of time learning English here. I enjoy reading English books. I think a great way to learn is to have English friends. My problem is that I find it difficult to meet many English people because I don’t like going to pubs and clubs very much. I like talking on the internet and I hope you do, too.

<Kirsty> Sergii. How nice to hear from you! I am very pleased that you want to write to me. It’s interesting that you live in Dulwich. My aunt lives in Dulwich too, so I know it quite well. I am nineteen and I live with my parents in north London. I quite like living at home but I hope to get a flat of my own soon. I love living in London. I like seeing my friends and playing music too, but my parents don’t enjoy all the noise! Not surprising, really. I am a nurse at a big London hospital. It’s near my home, so I can walk to work. The job is great but it’s hard work, and I don’t enjoy working at weekends. I hope I can help you to learn English. Speak to you soon.
