Dear Jodie, I saw your advertisement in ''Teens'' mag.I've always wanted a penfriend ,so I decided to write to you.Well, here it goes! My name's Stuart, I'm 15 and I'm English.I live in a small house in the suburbs of Manchester.I am only child and life gets lonely sometimes.So, recently my parents bought me a dog,Çizmo!He's a big responsibility and takes up a lot of my free time - but I'm not complaining.We have a great time together! By the way, I go to Secondary School (or High School as you say) and I'm in year 10.We get loads of homework!What are schools like in Canada?Do you have much free time for your hobbies?I certainly don't! If I manage to find some time, however, I go rollerblading or to the cinema.I love science fiction films.I'm also keen on acting , so I may join the school drama group.My favourite sports is football, of course.Man United rules!If you ever come to England, we can watch them play. Anyway, ı must stop now.I hope you'll write back soon. Till then... Take care, Stu!
