Sample answer:

¡Hola!

En mi colegio las clases empiezan a las 08.45 y terminan a las 15.30. Estudio ocho asignaturas y mi favorito es el español, pero odio las matemáticas. En general los profesores son simpáticos pero algunos son estrictos. Como uniforme escolar, me gustaría llevar vaqueros y zapatillas de deporte.

Adiós,

Laura

Hello!

In my school, lessons begin at 08.45 and finish at 15.30. I study eight subjects and my favourite is Spanish, but I hate maths. In general, the teachers are nice but some are strict. As school uniform, I would like to wear jeans and trainers.

Bye,
