Dear John,

How are you? Everything here's fine. I'm very happy at the moment because my football team won last week. I went to the match with my brother Fernando, and we both enjoyed it very much. The score was 6 - 1.

Well, that's a little bit of recent news from Almeira. Now, here's the most important thing in this letter:

What are you doing in September? I'm on holiday then, and I'd like to invite you to come to Almeira for a month. The weather is usually very good in September (it's not too hot!). We could go swimming and I could show you something of Spain.

I hope you can come. My family and I think it's a great idea, and we all want to meet you.

That's all for now.
Best wishes to you and your family.
