Dear Ahmad,

I live in a dormitory in Al-Fatha University. For five years I have lived there. I live in my room alone but I have many friends who live near me. Everyday I meet them and we talk about different subjects, drink coffee or tea and make dinner. I enjoy my time with them because they are good friends.

Every weekend I go to visit my family in Zliten. My father and my mother do the same job. They are both teachers.

I graduated about three months ago. I'm looking for a job now. I want to work in an oil company. (I wish that).

At the moment I'm learning English language because I need it to get a good job.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Write soon,

Hassam Ben Halim

Dear Luke,

Hello my name is Jasmin. I'm 15 and I live in Tripoli, Libya. I'm currently on my summer holiday from school.

Just recently I had my results and I passed so hopefully next year will be my new school year.

I live in north Africa, in Tripoli, Libya with my family. I've got three brothers, two are older than me and one is younger.

I'm a student at secondary school. I love biology and physics. What do you like? Well, I hope it's the same subjects.

My hobbies are watching TV, doing art stuff and listening to music. I like listening to Oasis and Avril Lavigne. The reason why I listen to them is because they play the guitar which I hope I will play someday - if my mom gets me one.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? What are your favourite subjects? Who do you live with? Would you like to visit Libya?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jasmin Ahtash

Dear Yusef,

I am very happy that we're going to be pen friends.

I'll tell you about myself and you can do the same when you write to me.

I live in an area of Tripoli called Jama Al Saga. I live with my parents and my two sisters. They are younger than me and their names are Nessreen and Maram. My father is an engineer, he works in an Electric Company and my mother is a housewife.

I'm a student in high school in the fourth year. I like sorts like Taekwon do. In the morning I go to the club where I can learn the arts of this sport. Sometimes I visit my friends.

I'm looking forward to hearing about you.

Best wishes,


Dear Enas,

I'm very happy that we're going to be friends. I'll tell you a little about me and I hope you'll write back and tell me something about yourself too.

I live in an area in Tripoli called Ain Zara. It's far away from the centre and there are so many farms in the area.

I live with my paernets and my three younger sisters and one brother. My father is a translator and my mother has a part-time job as a dentist.

I am studying at Takadum School and I have a lot of friends. I like most subjects but not all. I'm playing sport now; volleyball and swimming. I play music.

I miss you very much and I hope to recieve your letter soon.

Best wishes,

Iman Ibrahim

Dear Hedaya,

I'm a student in the secondary school.

I like listeing to music and doing excercises and going shopping. I'm interested in books and fashion. Now I'm joining English classes.

Dear Ali,

I am very happy that we are still friends. I will tell you a little about myself and you can do the same when you write to me.

I still live at the same place in Benashur Street with my parents, two sisters and two brothers. My older brother Azzam has been married for one year.

These days I have lessons in English at Yethreb School. I go there three times a week, I am really interested in it. My teacher is an English woman, she has been living in Libya for 35 years. She helps me and other students to learn English. My friend, you know how important English language is?

I am working as a receptionist at a private clinic. I earn ... from my job. I spend the money that I earn on basic things.

Write to me soon,

Anas Ben Barka
