As you know, I’m working in a fast-food restaurant. I go to work from 5 to 9 in the evening, so I don’t go out with my friends very often. I go straight home after work to review the lessons and get ready for the class the next day. However, I love my job because I have lots of chances to practice speaking English with the
  9. customers. I believe that I can improve my spoken English so much. However, I don’t like my boss because he’s too strict. I was living with an English family, but I didn’t get on very well with them. Therefore, now I’m sharing a flat with 4 French students. We have a lot of fun together, but I’m not speaking much English at home because we always use French. I’m going to English classes every morning in a language school next to my flat. I can learn a lot here and make great progress. Well, it’s time for work now. Looking forward to hearing from you. Best wishes,

They all need to be worked on for you to improve. Remember to keep a notebook of new words you learn and use them in sentences and try to say them at least 3 times when you speak.
