An informal email

Hi Mark,

Sorry I haven’t written for so long, but I’ve been studying for my final exams. I know you are coming to my school next month, so I’m going to explain what the typical meals are because the more you know, the better you eat.

Most people eat cereals with milk for breakfast, but I prefer to wolf down a sandwich made of salad, tomato, boiled egg and a bit of crab sauce! This is fairly tasty. I eat lunch at school at 2.30 p.m. – that probably seems unbelievably late to you – and I often eat a fresh green salad and boiled rice because the other lunches are totally revolting. Anyway, you can take a packed lunch from home. When I arrive home, at 5 p.m., I always have a snack: home-made pastries or a piece of fruit (it depends on the day). Then, I have dinner at 9 p.m., and I normally eat meat or some bread with sausage. My sister is really into cooking and she does totally amazing lasagna with steamed vegetables. We also like to eat “paella”, a typical meal of Spain. Home-made food is always the best, isn’t it?

Bye the way, how are things with you? All good here, but it’s been a bit hectic because of my mother’s accident.

Bye for now,

An informal e-mail

Hi Martina!

It's great to hear from you! Sorry I didn't write you straight back soon

How have you been? As I said, I've doing my exams and I studied a lot to pass them. I didn't
Moreover, I've been sorting out some issues about the adoption of the puppy. By the way, my sister and I have changed up our mind! Finally, the name of the dog is going to be "Otto".
If we hadn't changed the name that he had, It would have been too long to pronunce! My mum said to me that a long name would have been more difficult for the dog to understand.

How about your exams? And your dog? Say "hello" to your brother for me! We must meet and catch up soon. Maybe to take a coffee or going for a walk with the dogs. How do you see it?

Hughs and kisses,

Subject: Catalan food!

Hi Alice,
Thanks for your email. Sorry I didn't write straight back, I was busy preparing your welcome at our school. We're pretty excited about your arrival. Have you finished your research?

I'm writting to tell you abour our typical meals in Catalonia and our meal time.
We have 3 meals a day, and we start the day at 7 am. Usually, we take cereals for breakfast with a glass of juice or chocolate milk and a slice of bread with ''Mel i Mato'', a soft, unsalted goat chese served with honey and sometimes walnuts. It's typical in Catalonia, and I prefer the last dish. ;)
Time for a break! We eat breakfast at school at 11, we bring to us a homemade sandwich, or buy it at school. At 3 o'clock noon, it's time to eat at home, there are many Catalan dishes that I'm sure they will make you crazy!. Very healthy and mediterranean dishes, as ''Fideua'' that's like seafood paella, but served with shortnoodles, rather than rice. I'm imagining you lust to savour all these delicious dishes right now!.
 At 5 o'clock we take a snack, we don't take the famous ''Tea time'' as in London – One day I will take it – We often cook Panallets. Small rounds, sweet and made with almonds. Or Catalan cream. I'm learning to cook Panallets, because I love them.

Catalans, we rarely have ready-cooked food for dinner. We always eat a light dinner, as ''Pa amb tomàquet''. I think it's our national food (aside from ''Calçots''), it's too easy to do. Guess what! Even my relatives in Morocco do it too.
10pm, what better time for DINNER! I I'm just kidding of course. 10pm is a ridiculous time to eat. Probably you're suprised because it's so late. I'ts a bit hectic here.
Our diet is really famous all over the world, and you will have the opportunity to try many delicious dishes. And you will meet many handsome Catalans. ;) 
Well that’s all for now, take care of your little sister, hope she feels better soon. And good luck with your exams. We're waiting for you in Barcelona.
See you soon,

Yusra xxxxx
