You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
A friend from another country is moving to your city for work. He / she has asked you for advice about living in your city.
Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
- suggest an interesting part of the city to live in
- describe the public transport in your city
- say how your friend can meet new people there
Write at least 150 words.
It's very exciting to hear that you'll be moving to London and congratulations on your new job!
As you'll probably be working in the city centre, perhaps you could think about living near me in Croydon. It's a large town in south London. There are people here from all over the world and it has a friendly, relaxed vibe.
In terms of public transport, you can get around London by bus, train and the Underground. You should just get an Oyster card, which I'll help you with. It means you can get on and off without having to buy a separate ticket each time. Public transport is pretty crowded in the mornings but no worse than in Moscow!
I'll introduce you to my friends and I'm sure you'll meet people at work too. You could try living in a shared house if you want to meet some locals.
Anyway, I can't wait to see you.
Lots of love,
