IELTS 10 test A task 1

Dear Francesca,

It’s been a while since our last email. How have you been lately? Are you still studying or have you already graduated?

I have some good news. I’ve been accepted to into Rome University to study a Master’s degree in Architecture with a half scholarship from next July. I’m so excited! You know how much I love Italy – its food, language and culture. And to be studying my favourite subject in my favourite city will be a dream come true!

I have a small favour to ask. As it’s only a half scholarship, I’ll need to get a part-time job in order to make up the difference in my living expenses. With my intimate knowledge of the history and architecture of classical Rome (not to mention me being a native English speaker), I am hoping to find a job as a part-time tour guide. The only problem is, my Italian is still fairly rudimentary, so I was wondering if you could take a look in the local classifieds in Italian for a suitable position there. I’d just need you to find a few ads and send me the weblinks, and I should be able to use Google Translate to understand them and take it from there.

Well, that’s all for now. Looking forward to hearing from you and can’t wait to see you again soon!
