Письмо другу / A letter to my friend

Hello, I am doing well, thanks! How are you? Any news? I would like to say thank you for your support indeed, I do appreciate it. Yes, right you are, I do understand that I am too young to be professional in this field and I need more practice, but anyway I try to do my best.

I will definitely answer your questions, but maybe not now, because it is too difficult to answer at once and explain everything. Russia is a big country and I have not been everywhere of its corners. I live in Saratov as I said; I have been to Moscow, Pyatigorsk, Ekaterinburg and some other cities, so you see I like travelling very much. I wished to go to England but I could not get visa … and at this moment I have a lot to do except for travelling, so I need to pass my exams and graduate from the university. I participated not only in the translation competitions, but other competitions as well. It is interesting and challenging, beginning from the 1-st year of my study at the university I tried to be active and enthusiastic about learning languages.

Once I tried to find the book written in English by the English author, Dougie Brimson. It is «Billy`s log», maybe you have it? Unfortunately in Saratov I could find only Russian version, so the translation of this book and I can`t find the original version in English.

And what about you? As I understood you are now in England at the moment. It seemed to me that once you went there you decided to stay in England? How do you find this country? Is it really raining all days long? I look forward to your e-mail.
