    Isabella, Suzanne and Steven,

    before a new week starts please let me thank you all for the nice and useful last week I had in Edinburgh and at your school.

    It was a great pleasure to meet and spend time with you all last week.

    Not only I had interesting and relevant English lessons but also I had the chance to visit a great impressive city.

    And that thanks to your kind recommendations! So I could really appreciate posh area, fashionable restaurants/cafés and very pleasant people.

    ….and despite I’m Italian and when it comes to food I’m fussy, I enjoyed wonderful food!!!

    For sure, I will recommend your school and Edinburgh to all.
