    2. Исправлю то, что по моему разумению действительно неправильно. А исправлять стилистику оставлю на долю англоязычных. :) Надо или лучше: All the year round... I'm going TO make... I intend... (вряд ли правильно этот глагол ставить в Continuous). ...to GET RID OF... Вряд ли тут different. По-моему лучше - some. It TAKES a lot of time... I won't procrastinate and WILL try to manage... Иначе получается, что вы не будете бездельничать и НЕ будете стараться планировать своё время. У вас получается, что won't относится к обоим глаголам. ...if I can do it this year.

    2. Hi Jack, I hope you’re doing well. I’ve just changed my school, so I’m very exicted about that. By the way, a friend of mine plays football and they’re having a match next weekend. Would you like to go with me? There will be a very famous football player, but I’ve forgotten his name. And there will be a lot of snacks and drinks as well. So I’m writing to ask for advice. I’ve been having a few problems with time management recently. I think I haven’t got enough time to relax. There are a lot of interesting activities in my new school so I want to experience it all! I also regularly watch films and/or (drama/tv)series which takes a lot of time every day. So I have made a resolution to get rid of my bad habit. I resolve to do a timetable for all my activities. And the best part of that plan is that I get to allocate some time to relax. Once a week I shall spend two hours watching films! But all week round, I shan’t procrastinate and will do my best to achieve all my goals. Ingenious, isn’t it? So what about classes I’ll be taking? I m going to focus more on languages. Of course, it will be English and German but I would also like to learning Chinese. Language proficiency is very important for my further education whichever direction it leads me. And I also want to try Art. I’m going to have two classes a week. I hope it will be interesting. And I will also take some sport classes three times a week to maintain my health. So that’s my big plan. It will be wonderful if i can do it for this school year. What do you think about it? Do you have your own plan! I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Write back soon! Best wishes, Nastya
