Supported by Matador Stationary
Lesson: 34

Robin read the letter over and over. He was very excited. It came from his aunt Amina. Amina and her family live in the countryside forty miles away from Dhaka. Robin ran to mother and said, “Mom, listen to this letter.” He then read it to her.

Dear Robin,
We are happy to know that your summer holiday is starting from the next week. We would like you to come and stay with us for a few days.
We know you’ll like the country. We have four ducks, six chickens, and a cow that gives fresh milk every day.
Your cousin Maher is just about your age. He’s very excited and is making a lot of plans to do together.
Let us know when you will arrive. We have already talked to your parents. Tell them not to worry. We’ll be at the bus station to receive you.

Your Aunt Amina and
Uncle Karim
