made him famous. It was the first machine that was able to record and playback
sound. One of his renowned inventions was the light bulb. Edison was not the one

Question 4

To : shiela@mailnow.com

From : melanie@mailnow.com

Subject : Getting New Friends

Dear Shiela,
How are you and your family? I hope everyone is doing well. My family and I are doing
fine. Miss Lee and our classmates send their regards.
In your last e-mail, you said you were feeling lonely since you moved to your new school.
I think it is time for you to start making some new friends to help cheer up your days. The very
-END OF QUESTIONS-
first way is to make friends with people in your class. Look for opportunities to talk to your
classmates and learn more about them. If things go well, invite them to do something with you
outside of school, which will help you develop a friendship.
Other than that, maybe you could join the English Language Club or the Interact Club like
you did previously in our school. Joining clubs is a good way to make friends because you can
meet people who share the same interests as you. You could also join a sports team as you will
have opportunities to meet and talk to your teammates frequently.
If you decide to join a club or a sports team, be approachable. Just offer a friendly smile to
the members. It will make you seem more likeable and that will put people at ease to talk with
you.
A good way to get closer to someone is to ask them questions about themselves. You could
ask them about their hobbies, family or pets. Take note on things that the person is most
interested in or passionate about.
I have to sign off now. I wish you all the best. Goodbye.
Your friend,

Read the e-mail and answer questions (a) - (i).

Now why so loving, darling,


And why the sudden kiss?
You’d help me with some little jobs?
For goodness sake, what’s this?

Your face is clean for once, dear.


Your clothes without a crease.
You saved your luncheon money?
Will wonders never crease?

No dropping of your school books,


No shrieking, childish treble.
Today you are a lamb, love,
Where yesterday a rebel.
