Dear Felix, My name is Ruth. I am 16 years


old and come from England. I would like
to visit Germany to improve my German.
I am including a photograph of myself. As
you can see, I am short and slim. I have
got short, dark hair and green eyes. I am
friendly, but a bit shy. I like listening to
music and surfing the internet. My hobbies
are playing chess and reading. I spend my
free time playing chess with the Chess
Club and watching TV. I also like cycling. I
cycle with a cycling club at the weekends.
Please write back to me and tell me about
you and your hobbies. I look forward to
hearing from you.
Yours faithfully, Ruth Adams
