    Hello Carmen

    My name is Amparo and I’m 47 years old. I’m a civil servant. I have a lot free time because I only work 3 days and I have 5 days-off. It’s very good but there are two problems, I have to work some weekends so I don’t go out with my friends and I work some nights too.
    I have a son who live with me but he’s 18 years old and he doesn’t need me. For that reason, in my free time I’m studing english and art history.
    I hope to improve my english because I think it is necessary for many things in life.
    See you soon.
    Amparo

  3. Hi Carmen:

    My name is María. I was born in Castellón, but I´m living in Valencia for twenty years. I came here to study Pharmacy sciences when I was eighteen. Later, I knew Javier and we decided to stay here, in Valencia.
    We have two children: Javier and Paula, they are nine and seven years old.

    I started to study English when I was at primary school, but I leaved it when I was at University, because I didn´t have free time enough. It´s a long time since I don´t study it. I remember any things of English grammar, but I have to do an effort to understand people talking to me in English language.

    I hope to learn very much. By the moment, I´m satisfied with the classes.

    Dear Ana:

    How are you? I hope you had a nice weekend.

    I´m just writing you to tell you a few details about myself. I´m a librarian, but I´ve never worked in a library. At least, in a traditional library. My specialty is Internet and human computer interaction. I´m currently doing my PhD in this topic and I just returned from Madeira, where I’ve been making a stay in the university working on this.

    I’m working in a research department of the University of Valencia for eleven years, and I love my work. Usually it´s very hard and stressful, but it´s very interesting for me.

    In my free time I usually go to the cinema, theater, reading (I´m a librarian, so I love books) but my prefer activity is being with my friends, and go out to dinner or travel. Two years ago I went to London for first time and until this moment this is my favorite city on the world. I visited the most famous places in the city, like the Big Ben or the London Eye, and others more important for me like “The globe”, the Shakespeare´s theatre, or the British Library.

    Well, that´s all, for this moment.

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Best regards,

    Carolina.

  8. Hello, Carmen! I’m Olga Popova (1B2).
    I missed a lesson, when you did the test.
    So I’d like to ask you, if it’s possible, to do this test at another time. For example, when you have a lesson with the another group, I could come in and do the written part of the test.
    Tell me please, if it’s possible.
    Sorry for troubling.

    • I´m terribly sorry Olga but as I tried to explain to you the other day in class ( and it´s in the course instructions), I don´t repeat continuous assessment tests.
