See you soon.
See you soon.
This is a picture of Paris.The weather’s beautiful. The hotel’s excellent. In my hotel room there’s a colour TV and a shower. The food isn’t very good. Paris is expensive. My French is terrible, but the people are friendly. See you soon.

How to write a postcard to your friends or your relatives.
Things You’ll Need.
- Money to buy a postcard and stamp.
- A pen.
- The recipient’s address.
- Buy a postcard from a souvenir shop. It should have a picture of the place you’re at on it.
- Write the information as follows:
- Write the recipient’s name and address on the lines on the right hand side of the postcard. Don’t forget to include the country – you might not have to do this at home, but you do if you’re abroad.
- The left hand side of the postcard is for your message. Start by writing “Dear … (the name of the person you’re writing to).”
- Leave a line and state where you are and what it’s like or what th weather’s like, for example : “I’m in Paris, it’s great.” or “This is a picture of Paris. The weather’s beautiful.”
- Write a sentence about your accommodation, like : “The hotel is lovely. It has a big fountain outside and there’s a beautiful view from our window.”
- Write a sentence about food, drink and people, like: “The food isn’t very good but the coffee is OK. The people are quite friendly.”
- Then include a description of something you did on one of the days that you enjoyed, such as : “Yesterday we went on a boat trip across the river, I loved finding out about all the different sights in the city.”
- Write a comment about something particularly good, bad or funny about the holiday, like : “I tried raw fish but they were horrible.”
- Finish off by writing: “Wish you were here,”, “See you on Friday,” or “Best wishes” and then sign off with : “Love (your name) xxx”Your postcard should now be in the same format as this:Dear …I’m in Paris, it’s great. The weather is beautiful. The hotel is lovely, it has a big fountain outside and there’s a beautiful view from our window. The food isn’t very good but the coffee is OK. The people are quite friendly. Yesterday we went on a boat trip across the river. I loved finding out about all the different sights in the city. I tried raw fish but they were horrible.Wish you were here. Love (your name) xxx
- Stick a stamp onto the top right corner of the postcard and send it.
- Include lots of details but keep it short and sweet.
- Make sure you know the person’s address before you start writing the message or you could waste a lot of time.
- Postcards are not put in envelopes, so don’t write anything you wouldn’t want the postman to read!
