Our Toy Shop


Hi, my name is Amy. I am twelve years old. We have a small toy shop in
our neighborhood. My father says Fridays are the busiest day in our toy
shop. So after school, my mom takes me there to help my dad. That's
another reason why I like Fridays. We allow kids to play with the toys
when they are in the store. My father says I am responsible for the toys
and that I need to watch and make sure nothing breaks. Many kids from
my school and neighborhood also come to the shop to look at our new
toys. It is always noisy here. Because it’s full of babies and small children.
Little girls tend to go for dolls, boys go for cars. Some just want to play
with the toys; some actually want to buy them. It’s a bit tiring for me but
I like going to the shop and helping my father.

great party (150 words).

Love Sarah

Thank you for the invitation to your great party. But I regret to say that I can not
attend, since I am on vacation in the country of Finland and all this has been
great and very fun; yesterday I visited the Koli National Park, this view is the
most beloved landscape in Finland and has inspired many Finnish artists. The
hills and lakes offer an excellent location for excursions and fun activities at any
time of the year. And next weekend I will travel ten hours by boat to the
Oulanka National Park, you can imagine! It is the place where I had always
dreamed of going, I longed to see the beauty of the white and bright color of ice
and snow and finally, it will become a reality.
I wish you a great party in which you are the one who has fun and eats a lot
jajaja. I love you and I regret not being able to accompany you in that great
moment of disguises. “I know it would also be super by your side”.

Dear Melissa

MESSAGE:
Regards
Dear Mr. Erik Fuentes

Today I am addressing you very respectfully to justify my absence from work last week.
The reason for my absence was the following: On March 22, I was hospitalized, as a result
of an accident with my car, this happened like this: back home, my vehicle ran out of
brakes, causing it to lose control of my automotive and later crashing into a tree, which
caused open wounds, bruises, scrapes and the occasional first degree burn; As you can see
in the medical record attached to this email.
I hope you can understand the seriousness of the situation. I take this opportunity to send
you my most sincere apologies, as well as to assure you that I will update myself on any
task that is pending or that I will suffer delay due to my absence.
Thank you for your attention.

Attentively: Yuliana Yarledy Zapata Cuellar.

Zara
Zara is one of the biggest fashions chains in the world. The Owner of Zara is Amancio
Ortega. He is a rich man in Spain, but very few people know his face. There are only two
official photographs of him and rarely gives interviews. Although he is a multimillionaire
businessman, he does not look like one. He doesn´t like wearing suits or ties, and prefers
to wear jeans and shirts.
When he _was_ young he worked as a shop assistant in a clothes store, but in 1963 he
started a small company which made women’s pajamas. In 1975, at the age of 40, he
opened his first clothes shop and _named_ it Zara. Now, you can find Zara shops all over
the _world, from New York, to Moscow to Singapore.
Zara is so reacted because the store reacted quickly to the latest designer fashions and
produces clothes which are fashionable but inexpensive. Zara can make a new line of clothes
_on_ three weeks. Other companies normally take about nine months. The designs also
change from week to week so customers keep coming back to see what’s new. It produces
20.000 new designs including jackets, skirts, and a lot of new designs that made people _fall
in love with this clothes store.
