Dear Julia,

It's been two months since I came to England. I have settled down and started to like the life here. I have made several new friends. They are from different countries: Japan, Germany, and Russia. English is the only language we can use for communication. These friends are my classmates, and we also live in the same house. So we are 18 all daystudying, playing basketball and going shopping. It's very interesting to go to the supermarket. People from different countries enjoy different foods. Some of the foods are very 19 to me.

Could you come to England for a vacation this summer? You would love to meet my new friends.

Dear Ann,

I am really worried about my daughter, Shirley. I don't know why, but she always thinks she is too heavy. She eats only a little rice and some vegetables. She refuses fish, beef and pork. "Cake" and "desert" are taboo words to her.

The problem is that she is NOT heavy at all. In fact, the doctor says she is skinny. But she still believes being thinner will make her prettier. I'm afraid she will get sick before she becomes any "prettier."

Worried father,

Joseph
