to p simpson, principal.
from the student comittee

We are writing in response to your letter about your ways to savew money in the future for the collage.

In the first place, you told the transport facilities where under-used, but according to a recent survey the transport facilities are used by students at least twice a week.
You also told that the free buses run half empty, but on winter they are used in the maximum during winter.

As a second point you said that you decided on some changes, such as intend yo make the car park available to the general public during the day and charge a fee. We are sorry we cannot agree, we think that would not be convenient because there would be a lack of spaces for students.

You said you will be terminating the free bus service, and more bicycle stands will be providewd to encourage students to cycle to college. It is an excelent idea to try to encourage students to cycle to college, but we think it is really dangerous cycling in a city.

We undestand your point of view but after a careful consideration the comitte has decided to inform you that we will not support because of the disagreements.

The comittee.



I'm on the planning committee representing my country for the international cultural festival in London. I'm writting this proposal in order to suggest what should be included in the festival to represent the culture of my country.

Uruguay's Carnival
The carnival of Uruguay is considered the largest carnival on the world. It starded near the year 1760 and now it's stil very famous.
People disguise with a lot of colours and walk through the streets dancing and singing, where there's a crowd of people having fun, eating and some ones selling things.
People are eager waiting the whole year until February to celebrate the Carnival.
Maybe it can be possible to show a video with some of the carnivals.

Sports have been very crucial on our country, that's why now it's part of our culture.
Basketball, football and handball are the most typical ones.
Football is considerably the one that made million fans in uruguay. Our team is very know over the world because of the first world cup. We won and it was made in Uruguay also.
I think some of our football players could take part on the festival.

In Uruguay the 'Asado' is the most valuable food, it's typical, for example, to eat Asado the weekends, or in big parties.
"Torta fritas" are appreciated specially on rainy days. Also the 'mate' is a traditional Uruguayan infused drink.
We can take those three typical foods/drinks to the festival so people can taste them and know a bit more about it.

My proposal tries to make you know what Uruguayan culutre really is, and I hope it meets with your approval.
