Hello everybody!

My name is Mister Will. I live in London, but I will move to a nice house near Alicante soon, that’s my hope. Will you visit me in my new house?
As you know, I come from England, but I won’t come back because it is always rainy in my country and I like the sun and the beach. Next year, as normal, it will rain a lot in England.
Now, I’m going to introduce my friend  Miss GOING TO. She is finishing her studies and she is going to start working in a high-school in September. She has already passed the interview, so she’s very happy!
Tonight, we’re watching a film and we’re meeting at eight o’clock at the cinema.

- Tomorrow will be sunny and hot.
