  3. Hi teacher,

    My name is Rebeca. I was born in Santander where I lived until I was 19. Then I lived in Tenerife for seven years, in Castro Urdiales for a year, and I´m living in Santa Cruz de Bezana now.
    I live with my boyfriend in a quiet village closed to Santander. It´s a nice place and it has a very good communications with Santander. I live with mi pet “Isi”, too. It´s a great cat.
    I work in a Factory in Bilbao. I work as an administrative and an accountant. I like my job, but it´s far away from my house, and I spend a long time to get there.
    Physically I´m medium-height, I´m thin, I am fair-skinned, I´ve got long, straight and blond hair. And I´ve got brown eyes.
    I´ve got a strong personality. I´m extroverted, but sometimes when I have to speak in public (for example in class) I´m very shy. I´m a good listener, and a hard-working person too.
    In my free time I go out with my friends, we go to the cinema, shopping, to Pubs or Discos… and we speak about our own things. I visit my nephews and I go for a walk with them. They’re five and two years old, and I have a very good time with them. I do exercise (footing, cycling, swimming…) And I study English, too. I like it, but it´s difficult for me.
    Please write soon and tell me about you and your life.

  8. DESCRIBING WHERE I LIVE

    I live in a beautiful and small city, called Santander which where I was born so I’ve lived here during for sixteen years.
    Santander is the capital city of Cantabria, and it’s situated in the north top of Spain, among Asturias, Pais Vasco y Castilla y Leon,
    About 180,000 people live in this city and you can find people from many different countries, like Rumania or Colombia.
    There are loads of beaches (they are the biggest tourist attraction), monuments and places to go here, so it’s a great place to visit. People here are as “nice” as in the north, everybody thinks we are cold and to me we are a bit narrow minded.
    In Santander it rains very often, but the temperature isn’t too cold in winter and it’s warm in summer.
    I like Cantabria’s food in general, and foreign people love it.
    In summer there are sometimes music festivals and fireworks in August.
    I hope you like my city.

  9. Last year I went to Argentina with my parents, my sister and my little brother. I went in December because when it is winter here it is summer there. The weather was fantastic and it was sunny everyday. I was in Argentina for two weeks and I did a lot of things. The first week we were in Buenos Aires. We saw the city and it’s beautiful, it is very different from Spain. There we went sightseeing. Then we went to the waterfalls of Iguazú, I think that the waterfalls is the most beautiful thing in the country. During the second week we went to Patagonia and we could see impressive things like a glacier or different animals. We went on a ship and we saw penguins, seals and whales. Finally we went to the airport and I was a little sad because I didn’t want to go back home.
    This holiday was fantastic and I enjoyed it a lot. I hope that someday I could come back to Argentina.

  30. Dear Angeles,
    My name is Judith, I’m from Spain and I live in Maliaño with my parents and my sister. I’m 16 years old and I go to Muriedas’ High School. This year I’m studying humanities. I’ve been in Muriedas’ High School for five years an I like it, specially this year because I’m studying what I really like. I love languages and history.

    I’m going to tell you about myself. I’m of medium height, my skin is brown specially in summer, I have brown curly hair, my eyes are also brown and I’m very healthy because because I love all the food. I think that I’m a very good girl and when I relly know people I’m very talkative, I’m nice, kind, cheerful and hard-working but sometimes I’m untidy and shy. In my free time I love reading, going out with my friends, going shopping and especially travelling, I have been in very nice places like Canada, London and Paris and I had a good time.
    My favourite plates are the eggplants stuffed with minced meat and white beans with clams.

    I study English because it’s a very important language. English allows you travel to many countries, meet people and it can help you to find work, nevertheless I think that Spain has to harden the language teaching.

    Greetings.

    In my free time, I love walking on the beach and reading a good book. But I don’t have much free time because I work from Monday to Friday in the morning. I work in the evening too – Tuesday and Thursday- . I have English class on Monday and Wednesday in the evening. Everyday I go to the gym. I’m very busy all week and I need to relax at the weekend.
    Please, write soon and tell me about you.

    Best wishes,

    Maria

  32. Hi Angie,
    My name is Adelaida. I’m Spanish, from Madrid, but I live in Santander, a beautiful city in the north of Spain. I’m married and I have two children, a daughter and a son. My daughter lives in Madrid, she’s married too and she has two children, so I’m a grand-mother. My son is twenty two years old and he’s studying INEF at University in Leon. They come home sometimes.
    I’m 62 years old and I work near my house. Now I’m studying English because I’d like to speak English fluently.
    I’m shortish and I’m over-weight. I have short, wavy and blond hair. I have freckles on my nose and my cheeks. I need glasses to read.
    At first I’m a bit shy, but then -I think- I’m friendly and funny. I’m quite intelligent and hard working but I’m very, very absent-minded.
    In my free time I’ like reading and cooking. I like gardening but I don’t have much free time. I love reading and I try to go to the mountain every Saturday.
    I hope we meet soon.
    Best wishes
    Adelaida

    means that I have too many jobs, I work at the Hospital and at the
    University- I´m a theacher.

    In my free time I like going to the gym to swim. In the summer I like
    walking on the beach every day. Whenerver I can I like travelling with my friends. Last summer I went to Stambul, I really liked it. But I don´t have much free time because I work almost everyday and on Mondays and Wednesdays I have my English class.

    Greetings.

  34. Soraya Elices
    Básico II (L/M)

    Hi Angeles!
    My name´s Soraya. I live in Santander, a small city in the north of Spain. I´m married and I have three sons, the eldest works in Barcelona for Nissan. In the mornings I work in an office and in the evenings I´m learning English, I´m in my second year, and I really like it.

    I´m going to tell you which is my physical description. I´m tall and slim with short dark hair. I have brown eyes and a big nose. I usually do sport because I don´t like to be fat.

    My friends say that I´m a generous and nice woman but my sons think I´m not sympathetic. I´m usually happy.

    At the weekends I don´t live in the city and I like cooking for my friends and walking around the village.

    I hope to hear from you soon.

  35. ALBERTO GOMEZ MERINO
    BASICO 2 L-X

    Hi Alexandra,
    I received your e mail and I want to tell you in a few words, who I am.
    My name´s Alberto as you know. I´m Spanish and currently I live in Pielagos which is a small village next to Cantabrico sea in the north of de country- near Santander, which is a beautiful city. I live there with my wife and our pet. I´m thirty five years old and I work for the government in Santander although the following year it´s very possible that I´m going to work in maritime speciality in the Canary Islands. Also I´m studying English at the school of languages in Santander.
    I´m going to introduce myself. Firstly, I want to apolise because I don´t find a photo of myself. I have got short dark hair, I´m a short person with a normal aspect and I have got brown eyes. I don´t wear glasses.
    About my personality, I think that I´m extrovert and friendly with the people that I know, although strangers could think that I´m serious and introvert.
    When I have free time-I don´t usually have free time-I like walking along beaches with my pet and playing football or training by the mountains but now I don´t do it because my right knee is injured.
    I hope that you like this e mail and you find a little time to reply me to know you better.
    I look forward to your answer, regards
    Alberto.

    Hi Angeles

    I’m Maria, I’m 54 years old and I was born in Santillana, where I lived until I was 9. It is a small village in the north of Spain. I live in Santander with my two children Diego and Elena. Elena is a lawyer, she is 24, and this year she is living in Madrid. Diego is studying Law in Salamanca, but this year he’s in Pavia, Italy. He’s 21 years old.

    I work in my business as a G.P. I like my job. Now I’m also studying English and Italian after work from Monday to Thursday at 16 o’clock. I’m a hard-working woman.

    Physically I’m medium-height and I am of medium size. I’ve got brown shoulder-length hair and I’ve got blue eyes.
    I think I have a good personality, I’m optimist and I’m a good friend but I’m shy when I have to speak in public.
    In my free time sometime I go to the cinema or the theatre with my friends, and I like going to a restaurant after that. I often go to visit my mother at the weekend. I like reading and listening to good music (jazz and blues, country, etc) and I like studying.

    See you soon

    Hi Mª Angeles
    I’m Ines and I’m 26 years old.
    My name is Ines because when I was born my father liked that name for me. I’m from Salamanca but I’ve lived in Santander for 4 years. Salamanca is a beautiful and great city. I love it and I would like to live there, but my place is in Santander because my boyfriend is from Santander and we have a wonderful house under construction.
    I’m a nurse and I work at the hospital. I like it, but I need holidays …
    My hair is long and dark –I want to cut it but my mother tells me: “If you get married you will need long hair”. My eyes are brown and big. I wear glasses but I don’t like them, so I usually wear contact lenses.
    I like going shopping with my sister, going to the cinema and going to see the sea when I have free time. Seeing the sea makes me happy because I remember my family. But my favourite and expensive hobby is travelling. I love going to new and different places and knowing about their customs and cultures. My next trip will be Helsinki.
    Now, tell me about you to meet you and write soon, please.
    Best wishes.

    Ines

  43. Julio Sierra V. (M / J 2010-2011)

    Dear teacher,

    My name is Julio. I was born in Camargo but I live in Soto de la Marina with my wife and my two daughters, who are 10 and 8 years old.

    I am an economist and I work at the department of risks in a financial company.

    I am tall and slim. I have black hair with a lot of grey hair. I am friendly and I am not quiet but not talkative; at work I am hard-working, responsible, patient and tidy.

    During the working week I don’t have any free time; I only play a football match every Thursday evening; at the weekend I like being with my family; I like playing with my daughters and also meeting my friends. I also like reading and travelling.

    I like the sea and the mountain a lot; I walk on the beach and I go trekking when I can; the problem in this case is that it takes me one day to do the walk and I prefer to pass that time with my children.

    I studied English twenty years ago and now I’m trying to get back to the level I had and to improve after that. Furthermore I would like to visit other countries and be able to speak to their people.

    Greetings

  45. Ruth González Nieto (M/J 2010-2011)

    Hi Angeles !!
    My name is Ruth González. I´m from Astorga in León, although I live in Santander. I came here because last year I found a job and I stayed here.
    At the moment I´m not working because I can´t found a kind of work that fits my academic curriculum. I studied Art history in León and painting restoration in Asturias.
    I am twenty-eight years old and I have curly long hair and brown eyes. I am not very tall and I wear glasses. This is because I spend many hours in front of the computer playing computer games. I like strategy games.
    I have a dog called Kira, and a cat called Luna. Today they are my best friends, because most of my family live in León or in other parts in Spain.
    See you soon Angeles.

    There are a few mistakes. Can you find them?
