Your task today for topic is to plan ideas for a postcard to send to a family member or a friend back home.

Here are some questions you might like to have a think about and include in your plan:

  • How did you get to the USA?
  • Who did you go with?
  • Why did you choose to visit certain places? e.g. you can talk about the US cities from yesterday
  • What is special about the USA?
  • Would you go back? Why? 


Now read the PowerPoint below that explains the features of a postcard and look carefully at things people say. Write down on your plan some of the features you will use in your own postcard. We have  attached one more example of a postcard below.
