In your letter you tell me that/It’s very exciting to hear you’re coming to Italy. Personally, I think the best time to come is the spring before it gets too hot. If you want to meet young people I suggest spending a few days at a school or college. How about coming to mine?I’m sure we can organize something with the teachers. Also it would be a good idea to stay in a youth hostel. In the spring the weather is usually quite changeable, so you should bring some light clothes for the daytime but a jersey and a jacket for the evenings. Thanks also for your your invitation to join the group. I’d like to do so if I’m free. I’ll be able to show you some of the most interesting things in my area. I’m looking forward to hearing from you again soon! Best wishes Chiara
