I hope this email finds you well. I heard that you’re having difficulty learning English, and I wanted to encourage you to keep going. I understand that it can be challenging for you, but I want you to know that it’s worth it. There are some advantages to knowing English.
Firstly, English is the most widely spoken language in the world, which means that being able to speak it will give you more opportunities. You’ll be able to communicate with people from all over the world. And knowing English can help you in your career. Many international companies require employees to be able to speak English, so it’s a valuable skill to have.
I understand that learning English can be difficult. I’ve experienced some difficulties myself when learning English. For example, I used to have trouble with pronunciation and grammar. But with practice and patience, I was able to improve. I hope that you’ll continue learning English, Aunt. If you ever need any help.
Dear aunt Lily,
I hope you’re doing well. I’m writing this e-mail because I heard you’re considering stop learning english. That’s very sad because I think you’re doing good. Last time I saw you, you’ve had improved a lot. The hardest part you did already.
You should think about the advantages that knowing English will bring to you. When you start talking fluently you will be able to travel and communicate a lot easier, you will be able to watch videos and TV and understand everything. Also, I heard you have a grandchild coming. If you learn you’re going to be able to teach her/him as well.
I remember when I started learning English, the language has a lot of different rules that what we’re used to, but you got this. I hope you can see that continue learning will be very beneficial to you.
