Dear ....,
My name is ..... and I live in the state of Georgia in America. I'm 15 years old, and I am learning to drive. I am a ninth grader and attend high school. The classes I'm currently taking are Spanish, sports marketing, geography, honors literature, biology, and algebra/geometry. The school year for us starts in the middle of August and ends on May 23 this year. We get a break for 1 week in November to celebrate Thanksgiving in America. We also get a 2 week break in December to celebrate the winter holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah. I love spending time with my friends and family, shopping, going to the movies, and going to sporting events at my school. I currently manage the baseball team at my school, and I love being able to help them out and cheer them on at every game. In the south, where we live, the spring and summer are really hot, so we are starting to wear shorts again! The winter can be cold, not like Russia, but cold to us, and we can usually get a few inches of snow every year. This makes everyone excited because we usually get out of school because we don't have the equipment to travel on the roads like you would in Russia.
All 50 states are run by a governor, but the country is run by the president. Our independence from Great Britain was July 4, 1776, and that is known as the 4th of July or Independence Day. Most cities have parades and fireworks to celebrate. Most holidays we celebrate are Christmas, Easter,Halloween, New Year's Eve/Day, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, mother's day and father's day, and Memorial and Veteran's day to honor our soldiers.
We have a few mountains in north Georgia, but most of the land is flat. There are lakes and rivers located throughout the state. We also have a coastline in southwestern part of the state.
Hope this helped inform you about America. Ask me any questions you have.
Sincerely,

Some Russian students' mails
