Dear Julie !

As you know I (ARRIVE) in Paris a week ago, but their was a problem with my luggage. Unfortunately, it had been sent to Lisbon instead of Paris. Yesterday, someone (CALL) me from the airport to go and there and pick them up. That's why I (NOT BE) at home when you (PHONE). At the time I (TRY) to find my suitcases among those which had arrived from Portugal. It (TAKE) me the whole afternoon to do that. Well, I'm sure you want to know what's going on now in Paris.

The family who I (STAY) with at the moment are very nice. They treat me exactly like one of them. They (ALREADY INTRODUCE) me to all of their friends. I share a room with the daughter of their family, who is about my age. Every morning her mother (WAKE) us up with a cup of tea. Herbie, Jane's father , is also a nice guy. He lets Jane and me do everything we want. He even (ALLOW) us to take his car when we want to go somewhere.

Tomorrow will be my first day at language school and I am really looking forward to it. They told me to be there at 9 o'clock. I (TAKE) a placement test in the morning . I expect they (ANNOUNCE) the results by the end of the day. As soon as I learn how I did, I will give you a call. Well that's all for now. Please write soon. I would really like to know what (GO) on a home.

Love, Claire
