Dear May,

I know you are still angry, but please listen to me.

When Mom asked you not to play computer games all day long, what did you do? In a loud voice, you told her you were doing your computer homework. Then you slammed your room door and refused to talk to her.

You don't understand how much you have hurt her. I think she is waiting for you to say you are sorry. If you don't feel comfortable doing so, why don't you just say something likeGood morning”? If you can say anything, it will make your mom feel better. I know you love her, and I hope things can go well between the two of you.

Love,

Dad

Bill and Jill were going to visit Da-wei and Li-hua Wu in Taiwan for several days. Before they left America, Bill and Jill tried to learn about Chinese food and Taiwanese ways of doing things. They wanted to be polite. They learned that most people in Taiwan eat rice, drink tea, and take off their shoes when they go into a friend's apartment. Bill and Jill even learned to use chopsticks.

At the same time, Da-wei and Li-hua learned about American food and American ways of doing things. They wanted to be friendly. When Bill and Jill came to the Wu's house, Da-wei and Li-hua told them to keep their shoes on. Later they went out for dinner. They ate pizza and drank Coke. The next few days, they had breakfast in a coffee shop and ate hamburgers in a fast-food restaurant.

On their way back to America, Bill and Jill were thinking about why they never ate rice or drank tea or ate with chopsticks. They never took off their shoes when they visited the Wu family. They thought that living in Taiwan was just like living in America.

Hi Brenda,

How are you doing? I am on vacation in Hollaya with my parents. We have been here for two days. Yesterday we went to a restaurant and tried calas. They were so delicious that we ate too much and were too full to eat dinner.

Today my parents took me to visit Anita, my mother's classmate in high school. She moved to Hollaya about 10 years ago when she got married. She was very nice, and she showed us around the city. In the evening, we went to a theater to see a modern dance show.

Tomorrow we're going shopping. I'll tell you more later.

All the best,

Candy

Vivian sent a letter and a picture to Gloria.

Dear Gloria,

How have you been? I miss you very much. It's my second year in Burney. School is not a problem for me, and I have made some friends in my class.

Here's a picture of my classmates. The girl standing next to me is Sally. She has beautiful long hair. And the boy in the cap is the cutest person in the class; we all call him Jolly Jerry. The other boy is Jason. I think he is smart and nice. I'm thinking of asking him to a movie. What do you think? Please give me some suggestions on what I should do. Maybe I'll have a boyfriend when you see me next time!

Love,

Vivian

The first typhoon of this year is coming fast from the Green Sea. Although it will not arrive until tomorrow, strong winds and heavy rains are here already.

It is quite windy in Greenton. The city's famous bright sun cannot be seen today because the rain is going to last all day. Greenton's temperature today is 21-24°C.

Ferilla is also windy and rainy. Its beautiful beaches are closed because of the typhoon. People who want to have a vacation there will have to change their plans. The city's temperature today is 20-24°C.

The weather in Coco Town will still be good today, just like yesterday, because it is on the north side of White Mountains, and the mountains block most of the wind. The temperature in Coco Town is 25-29°C.
