Dear Chakour ,
Thank you for your long letter . It was very interesting to hear from you .Your
city , Tebessa , is very beautiful as the photo shows . Now I would like to tell you
about myself and my family a bit.
I live in a little village about 20 kilometers away from Algiers city .I have got
two brothers yet lost one a couple of years ago ; honestly , no word can describe my
grief .I have two sisters, they both go to the university . My mother is a teacher and
my father is a doctor . He works for a public hospital in the city where we live . He
often goes there by car .
About me , I usually go to secondary school on foot . Sometimes , I take the bus
and I generally have my lunch at home . I have to pass the Baccalaureate exam this
year . I must work hard both at home and in the school in order to attend a good
university . At the weekends , I either play basketball or visit my grandparents . I
hardly ever go to the beach in holidays .
I look forward to your next letter .
Best wishes ,
Fatima
