P.S. If it’s possible, could you come and meet me for a few days in France or Italy?

Tip Emails to friends are informal and use informal and friendly language. It can be
similar to spoken English, e.g. Well / Anyway , and many expressions are common, e.g.
Thanks so much for your email . The structure of an email is also important.
Follow this structure:
• Greet Melissa. Start with Hello or Hi Melissa.
• Thank Melissa for her email and say something about her summer activities.
• Answer Melissa’s questions.
• Say goodbye.
• Sign off with your name.
• Add an additional note to the end of the email ( P.S.) if you want.
Check it! Read your email and check it’s organized clearly and makes sense. Then
read it again and check for grammar, vocabulary and spelling errors.

Hi Melissa

you have planned to do and I am glad that you are fulfilling your
wishes, make the most of the trip tomato muhcas photos to
remember and please when you are in France sit and take a
delicious Coffee enjoying the beautiful landscapes of Paris.
I still don't have plans for the summer because my friend and
yulieth and I go on vacations in different weeks, however, we want
to travel together to the beach, maybe if we travel, I'll be telling you
later.
I have to say goodbye to you soon.
