DEAR MATT,
Thanks for your letter and the photo of your football team. We play football
at our school too, but my favourite sport is rugby. I love it!
I like French very much and I'm very good at Music, but I hate Geography.
What subjects do you like and don't you like? Who is your favorite teacher and
why?
At home, I play a lot of video games. My favorite game is "half life". Do you have
video games at home? What's your favorite game?
I don't read a lot of books but I like science fiction, comics and sports
magazines. What books do you read? I collect stamps and I play the guitar. Do
you play a musical instrument? My favorite meal is fish and chips. I like
hamburgers too. I'm not difficult but I don't like milk and I hate coffee! What food

Write soon and tell me more about your hobbies.
All the best
Sean

JOURNALISTS AND REPORTERS
In the morning, we usually read a newspaper with our breakfast. On
Sundays, some people read two or three newspapers. They buy the newspapers
because they like their journalists and reporters. The journalists and reporters
make the newspaper interesting. They give us new ideas.
Journalists usually work in a newspaper office or at a TV station. They sit at
their desk and write their ideas on a modern computer. They tell us about
important people or events. They know many politicians and tell us about political
news. Journalists are important people because we get some ideas from them.
Other media people are reporters. Reporters go to different events and find
news. They write about sports or social events. Sometimes they go to the
stadium and talk to the football players. Sometimes they go to the cinemas and
tell us about the films. Sometimes they go to dangerous places, such as Bosnia,
Iraq and so on. Many reporters die every year because they want to give us
important news.
Reporters and journalists have interesting jobs, but they are dangerous
jobs, too.
