What kind of place do you usually choose to stay for the night during a trip? Expensive hotels that may make you feel like you don’t get what you pay for? Or cheap hostels that put you and five other strangers in the same bedroom? If both choices sound terrible to you, here’s something new: holiday apartments.

In a holiday apartment, you have more space than what a hotel room can give you. Everything in the apartment is at your disposal. The living room, the kitchen, the study, and, of course, the bedrooms are all for your own use. Some apartments even have a lovely garden or a game room. You’ll feel at home in the holiday apartment. The best thing is, a holiday apartment is not expensive. The price for a holiday apartment is for two people, and the apartment is often cheaper than a hotel room for two. You only need to pay a little more for a third or fourth person. If you travel with friends or your family, a holiday apartment will be your best choice!

Dear Julia,

It's been two months since I came to England. I have settled down and started to like the life here. I have made several new friends. They are from different countries: Japan, Germany, and Russia. English is the only language we can use for communication. These friends are my classmates, and we also live in the same house. So we are 30 all daystudying, playing basketball and going shopping. It's very interesting to go to the supermarket. People from different countries enjoy different foods. Some of the foods are very 31 to me.

Could you come to England for a vacation this summer? You would love to meet my new friends.
