Dear Dad,

I know you are unhappy about the poor grades on my tests this semester. I'm sorry for that. I promise I will study harder next time. But Dad, please, could I study at home by myself? I don't want to go to the cram school any more. I don't think it can help me. I promise I won't spend so much time watching TV and playing computer games. I'll do my homework every day and use my time well to preview and review every lesson.

Let me try, Dad. I'm sure I'll do better.

Your son,

Fred

Hi Brenda,

How are you doing? I am on vacation in Hollaya with my parents. We have been here for two days. Yesterday we went to a restaurant and tried calas. They were so delicious that we ate too much and were too full to eat dinner.

Today my parents took me to visit Anita, my mother's classmate in high school. She moved to Hollaya about 10 years ago when she got married. She was very nice, and she showed us around the city. In the evening, we went to a theater to see a modern dance show.

Tomorrow we're going shopping. I'll tell you more later.

All the best,

Candy

Welcome to your favorite radio show, "Music Wonderland"! March 21 will be the 300th birthday of Bach, the Father of Music. So this month we are going to have several special programs on this great man of music.

Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Germany in 1685. During his lifetime, Bach wrote a lot of music for the church and for his students, but he himself did not keep his own works carefully. Luckily, his second wife copied them and saved them for him. So today we can still remember Bach through his music.

Bach married twice in his life and had 20 children altogether. He was a man who loved his family very much. When his first wife planned to learn the piano, he wrote two music books for her. And he also wrote music for one of his daughters to tell her that too much coffee was bad for her health. I am now going to play a song for you from this interesting Coffee Cantata.

And we will hear more about Bach after the song.
