I'm writting in response to your idea ot set up a new common room for students to use in our free time . I think that this is a excellent idea because we need more free and comfortable space for study, have a lunch or snack , relax, take a break and specially when we have a lot of free time between classes.

I have been thinking about your idea and I would like that the common room will stay on the 8th floor because there are a lot of benefit:
we will have a big space because is bigger than others.
large windows that makes very comfortable and lighting.
have cahir and tables and the winter so air conditioning will be warmer there.
the room can as well have tv, radio, computers and books related to our needs.

I would like you could give me a few datils about your idea for compare with my idea , also I would like recommend you to visit this room because you will notice that these aspect are for real.

I hope my answer is of interest to you.
thank for you time !

Formal Transactional Letters

Dear Editor,

I'm writting because I have some complains about your newspaper report that you company published last week on the demonstration against the proposed by-pass for the town of Oldbury, wich is a mistake.

First of all, The protester's claims were not only about the extinctions of the snails but also about the entire destruction of woodland.

In the second paragraph the incorrect event was that the stimated of people gathered here were over 2.000 not 200, it was in a silent demostration and we did not sit on the road blocking the access to the site. We are pacifist demostrators.
I also read in his report that the demonstrators were people found to live there, but were from other parts of country and I must say that most of the protesters live there.

I would suggest that you should send a reporter to my house in order to get the story right , I would be pleased to answer all of your questions.
I look forward to recieving and answer from you because I think everybody need to know the truth.

Yours faithfully,
Carrie Valenzuela.

PreCipiTatioN ExPeRIeNCe
One of the worst things that can happen to someone is a ruined vacation. One of the easiest ways to ruin a vacation is to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. This was my experience in Villarica , South of Chile today and this came in the form of horrible weather conditions.
When I woke up around 11AM the rain was coming down hard and everything was soaked. The rain was flooding the streets and there was water covering everything. Also there was a lot of lightening which seemed to strike about every ten minutes. This made for horrible weather conditions and so we had to cancel our trip to the pool. I was very disappointed because we did not have anything else planned and this is our only vacation. If that was not bad enough, the bad lightening and thunder along with the five plus hours of very heavy raining put the internet connection out. This meant that I was unable to get online for the entire morning. My boydfriend's credit card bill was due today and He had waited until today to pay the bill. Because of the bad weather I could not get the internet to work and this resulted in a late payment of Her credit card. The problem with this is that He does not have much money and Her credit card has very high late charges. This has been the worst vacation for us because it has resulted in ruined plans.

What can ordinary people do to help in the fight against crime?

In my opinion,I think that Crime and the fear of crime in a community is, of course, a real and prevalent problem in today's society. But that does not mean that there is nothing ordinary people can do to prevent it. No sensible person would advocate vigilante-ism but there are many steps people can take to prevent crime in their community. for example neighbourhood watch schemes,take responsibility and don't be afraid.

After all prevention is far better than cure, and never more so than in these circumstances. So, if people turn their minds to crime and the fear of crime they may wonder how you can help prevent crime in your community.
Call the Police when they see someone break the law. Give a good description of the bad guys and direction of travel.

If you want to protect yourself then yes get a concealed carry permit and carry a gun. However, that is not going to help the Police catch criminals. That will just help you not be a victim.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Get a conceal carry permit. Watch your surroundings closely. If you see anything suspicious call the police. Start a block watch or recruit many people to walk the neighborhood so you can keep an eye out for any crime in progress. Some people actually set traps for thieves.

the best solution is to raise children to be law abiding and to be honest people
very hard thing to do but back to the basic do unto others what you would like them to do to you

Dear Elizabeth,

I apologize for haven’t written , but I've been staying in Rancagua very busy for this time. I'm here because I helped our grandfather getting ready for the rodeo.As you know, Every September in Rancagua to commemorate the fiestas patrias when on September 18th 1818 was the independence of our country.every place and people from around got change.It's very exiting for me because there are a lot of people that I don't know. however I think this is the best time to the remember 10 years ago when we were a litle girls that is very lovely. But always in Rancagua I feel like that a baby girl because our grandfather is the best man,he is nice,I love him. Our grandmother is a tired but she always ready to celebrate the fiestas patrias with me,She remember you all time! and during celebration of the best rodeo from Rancagua I can saw to Lissette monge. Do you remember her? she is married and she has two boys,she is curly blong hair and she is 27 years old. She live between the old and short blue church and Jorge's house that it's the same place that years ago.Our grandmother prepare for lunch that typical Chilean food and lost fun activities that 10 years ago.
Come back here again it was a success I feel very exciting.Our grandfather sold more than 500 tickets for the rodeo and Our grandmother sold 400 empanadas. That makes my feel very thankful, because I had the opportunity of the lived that experience, As you can imagine, I earned a lot of money. With my money the day of the rodeo, I could have fun with the activities. I went horse riding and our grandmother even got nominated for the empanada’s Queen Beauty pageant. The organizer made up for it by providing some excellent food. The empanadas and anticuchos were delicious and the wine certainly kept everyone smiling.
I enjoyed every day. I got the chance to meet a lot of new people and I even came back with you for the next year.
I whished you'd been here, I miss you my best cousin
Well, that’s all from me.
Let me know what you’ve been doing recently.

the best wishes
