Per le vacanze ho da leggere "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" semplificato per il B2 e devo anche svolgere gli esercizi del libro. Fra questi ce n'è uno in cui devo immaginare di essere la protagonista e di scrivere una lettera in cui accetto una proposta di lavoro...Adesso vorrei sapere se il frutto delle mie fatiche è comprensibile, perciò vi chiedo gentilmente di correggermi la lettera spiegandomi gli eventuali errori. Eccola qui:
Dear Mrs d'Urberville,
I decided to accept your offer.
This job is very important for my family because we are facing a moment of distress lately. My father is a haggler and our horse died in an accident a few weeks ago. I believe it was all my fault, as I had to be careful while I was driving my cart, whereas I fell asleep. Thus I thought I had to find a solution and I looked for a job in Marlott, so that I could earn some money and buy a new horse. Unfortunately, I didn't find anyone who could help me.
I discovered that my family descends from yours. I was wery surprised at first, but we have two objects with your arms on them, so I can prove our relationship. I'd like to know something more about your family and my future job. What will I have to do? And where will I live? I promise I'll work very hard, because I want to help my family and I don't want to let you down.
Grazie mille in anticipo!
