Thank you for your letter. I'm so happy to get your letter. It was very interesting for me to learn about your news.
In your letter you ask me about trendy clothes and their role in my life. As for me, I don’t pay attention to the fashion. I think that the most important feature of clothes is comfort. I seldom go shopping for clothes. As a rule, my mother buys jeans and T-shirts for me. Of course, I don’t spend much money on clothes.
Sorry, I have to do my homework now. Keep in touch.

I was happy to get your letter. It's so wonderful that you are keen on taking pictures. I's really a great hobby.
As for me, I prefer active hobbies. I like to ride a bike and I usually spend a lot of time riding it. I began to practice it when I was 7 years old. My parents bought me a bike. I was so happy! Since then cycling has become my hobby! Some of my friends have the same interest and we ride together to different places.
Well, do you use computer technologies when you take photos? Do you think they make our life easier? What computer programme do you find the most useful?
Sorry, I must go now because I have to do my homework.
Write back soon!
