* You have to write an e-mail to a friend who left to live elsewhere. It is written in an informal register, so you can use contractions, slang words, exclamation marks, phrasal verbs...:
I hope all is well in your new city. Everything here is passing by so quickly, and the summer months are almost gone. It's only been a little while since you left, but it everything already feels different. Even though it's super sad that you don't live just a bus ride away anymore. I really do hope that your new life is going well.
* You need to write to a workmate to ask for some help related to your work:
Listen, we've been working on the Smith account and I was wondering if you could give me a hand? I need some inside information on recent developments over there. Do you think you could pass on any information you might have?
Thanks in advance!
