14SCORE

Last summer I went on a trip to Mexico. The country
was beautiful and the food was fantastic. However, I will
say that some of the food was too scary to eat. When we
were at a small restaurant in Oaxaca, the waiter told us
to try the chapulines. I didn’t know what they were, but
according to him they were very tasty. My brother and I
were waiting for our food, and soon the waiter brought
our chapulines to the table. They were grasshoppers! My
brother didn’t even want to look at them. I am more
adventurous than he is, so I tasted them. They didn’t
taste bad at all, in fact they were surprisingly good.
They were sour and salty at the same time. I asked the
waiter how they cooked them. I never thought they
would be so easy to cook. The difficult part is buying
the grasshoppers where I live. They don’t sell them in
supermarkets. Well, I’ll just have to go back to Mexico
and eat my chapulines there!

READING

Dear Lucy,
Hello! I am so glad you wrote. It was really good to hear from you. What have you been up to? I have
some news... I just finished my white-water rafting class! I know, it’s crazy, right? Well, Sally told me about
this class, and it sounded really interesting. She said that it was the most fun she had ever had, and I
completely agree!

The course wasn’t very long; it lasted only three weeks. The fee isn’t much either. I paid only £55. What’s
more, you don’t have to bring anything with you; they have the equipment and everything you need there.
The best part is that you don’t need any experience. That was convenient for me, because I had never
been on a boat before in my life! The instructors are very good, they know so much about rafting. At the
end of the course, you get a certificate that says you can go rafting by yourself!

Anyway, if you want to attend the course too, let me know. If you sign up, I know you’ll have a great time!

Yours,
Lilith

As for the (4) , we’ll give you everything you need. Our

own. Sign up today!

You have received an e-mail from Adam, a friend of yours. Read part of his e-mail below and write back to him.
Accept or refuse the invitation and make sure you cover all the points made in the e-mail.

Any plans for the summer? I’ve got this great idea. Jessica and I are going to this campsite for a couple of weeks. It’s
close to the sea, it’s very peaceful and I know you need to relax. Jessica and I thought that you might like to join us for
a few days. After all, you like camping, don’t you? What do you think?
The only problem is that we don’t know the exact dates we’re going to be there. When are you going to take your days
off? We’ll definitely know next week and I’ll let you know. Oh, and tell me if you can take your car as well because ours
has a problem and I don’t know if we’ll be able to travel in that. But don’t worry if you can’t take your car, we can all go
by bus.
Anyway write back and tell me if you’re coming. If not, tell me what your plans are.
