Теркин пишет

…И могу вам сообщить

Из своей палаты,

Что, большой любитель жить,

Выжил я, ребята.

И хотя натер бока,

Належался лежнем,

Говорят, зато нога

Будет лучше прежней.

И намерен я опять

Вскоре без подмоги

Той ногой траву топтать,

Встав на обе ноги…

Озабочен я сейчас

Лишь одной задачей,

Чтоб попасть в родную часть,

Никуда иначе.

Imagine that you have received a letter from Vassili Tyorkin

….It was a very hard battle, but we had won. Now I am at the hospital because of my leg. I don’t think that it is a problem. I survived and very glad. Sometimes I try to find the answers to some questions. What would our world be like without any war? What must humanity do to live in peace?…

Write a letter to Vassili Tyorkin . In your letter: • answer his questions • ask 3 questions about his stay in a hospital Write 100—140 words. Remember the rules of letter writing.
