READING COMPREHENSION:

Read this text that Simon Brent wrote to introduce himself to some international pen
friends.

Hi,
My name is Simon Brent, but my school mates call me Si. I’m thirteen
and I was born on the 4th of July, 2001 in the Washington D.C. I’m lucky
because I always get to watch the fireworks next to the White House.
All my friends and relatives are there because the 4 th of July is
Independence Day, the greatest national holiday in America.
I live in a big flat on 23 Jefferson rd. and my phone number is
05766893. I live with my parents, my twin sisters and my baby brother.
History is my favourite subject because I love learning about the history
of the U.S.A, about all its battles, famous presidents and heroes.
Girls say that I’m quite handsome, with my blond hair and blue eyes. That’s because I
descend from Irish immigrants that came to America 100 years ago. My father and
grandfather are quite tall and I take after them. My friends say that I’m very outgoing and
friendly. In fact, I love practicing sports, especially tennis and basketball and I hope that one
day I’ll be a famous NBA player. However, I’m also good at athletics and skateboarding.

Hope to hear from you soon,


Simon
