Dear François

Thanks for your message. I’m looking forward to your visit to Dublin. I’ll come to the airport with my father to collect you on Saturday. What time does your flight arrive?

I think you’ll like Dublin. We live about 5km from the city centre but there are buses that go into the city all the time. When you’re here there are lots of things we can do. We can go to the water park at the aquatic centre and we can go cycling around Phoenix Park. If you like horror stories, we can visit Dracula’s Castle and there are lots of cinemas so we can go to watch a film too. And of course, you’ll meet all my friends and we can play football together.

You should bring a jumper and a jacket. The weather here is usually cold and rainy!

See you on Saturday.

Do you often make spelling mistakes? What words do you often spell incorrectly?

Yes. Unfortunately, I often make mistakes when I write.But, I started my study about English just few time ago and I know that is a thing very normal and I believe that I can do better.

I sometimes make mistakes especially long words. It's too difficult to remember the correct one.Please tell me how can I improve my memory.

Hi SLMT,
Have you seen our Exams section? We have some great tips in the Grammar and vocabulary section and also in the Study tips section. Have a look here first: https://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/exams/grammar-and-vocabulary-exams/learning-new-words There's a section there about how to remember new words. 
Check it out and let us know if it helps. 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I like your thinking but you should pay attention on them to improve your spelling, right?
