Hi, I’m Adam. I’m Polish. I come from Poznań, but


now I live in a flat in North London with my mum,
Wanda. I came to England in 2008 as a student. My
mum wanted me to study English, but I didn’t like it. I
left the course after two months and got a job as a bike
messenger. I’m lucky because I have been successful
and we can pay for my father to come to England too. I
usually go back to Poznań every summer to see friends
and family. But I’m not going next year because I met a
Turkish girl here in London – and we’re getting married!

Adam is living in London now.  T


1 He is living with his mother. 
2 He came to London to work. 
3 He didn’t like the English course. 
4 He usually visits his family in Poznań once a year. 
5 He is going to Poznań in the summer with a Turkish girl.

Dear Susanna,
I’m now in Rio de Janeiro, as you can see from my
address!
I arrived here three days ago. My plane took off very
late, so I got fed up waiting at the airport.
The people from the airline were (1)
and unfriendly too. Anyway, I finally got to Rio and the
weather was (2)  – not much
(3) than London! But it got better
quickly, and soon there were beautiful clear blue skies
again.
I’m sharing a flat with two other girls. They’re both
lovely, but they can be quite (4) –
they play much (5) music than my
flatmates back home. And the flat isn’t very tidy – in
fact, it’s (6) than my eight-year-old
brother’s room!
But Rio is the (7) city I know! It’s
busier and more hectic than London. But people are
more polite and (8) too. I’m studying
Portuguese at the university. The classes are going
(9) than I expected – so that’s good!
Write soon and tell me your news.
With love,
Helena
