Letter writing practice - festival experiences - Foundation/Higher

Try writing a letter to your Spanish friend about a festival.

Acabas de asistir a un festival con tus amigos (You have just been to a festival with your friends).

Escribe una carta a tu amigo/a español/a. Escribe aproximadamente 90 palabras en español. Responde a todos los aspectos de la pregunta (Write a letter to your Spanish friend. Write approximately 90 words in Spanish. Answer all aspects of the question).

Menciona (Mention):

  • qué hiciste durante el festival (what you did during the festival)
  • qué diferencias hay entre los festivales en España y en Inglaterra (what differences there are between festivals in Spain and England)
  • por qué son importantes los festivales (why festivals are important)
  • tus planes para un festival el año que viene (your plans for a festival next year)

There are four points to cover so it's important to cover them all equally. Remember to use a past tense to talk about what you did during the festival and a future tense to talk about your plans for a festival next year.

Example answer:

¡Hola! Lo pasé bomba durante el festival con mis amigos. Fuimos a una fiesta muy grande y vimos el desfile por la calle. En mi opinión, los festivales en España son más tradicionales que los festivales ingleses y hay más fiestas en España que en Inglaterra. Creo que los festivales son importantes para la cultura y la historia de una región. Además, las costumbres son interesantes. El año que viene voy a ir a un festival de música con mi mejor amigo. Vamos a escuchar la música en vivo y será fantástico.

Translation:

Hello! I had a great time during the festival with my friends. We went to a very big party and we saw the parade in the street. In my opinion, festivals in Spain are more traditional than English festivals and there are more festivals in Spain than in England. I think festivals are important for the culture and history of a region. What's more, customs are interesting. Next year, I am going to go to a music festival with my best friend. We are going to listen to live music and it will be fantastic.
