A les­son on us­ing the email

The Borneo Post - Good English - - News -

“Type in the sub­ject of your email,” said my teacher, Mrs Pinto. I was hav­ing my English les­son. My teacher was teach­ing me how to use email. I could not wait to get started.

I lis­tened at­ten­tively to what Mrs Pinto was say­ing. Each of us had our own email ac­count so we could send let­ters to our friends. I typed in my best friend’s email ad­dress. Then I be­gan typ­ing a let­ter to her. It was more fun than writ­ing. When I fin­ished, I asked my teacher how I could in­sert ‘smi­leys’ like I had seen my older brother do­ing. My teacher showed me which icon to press. A box filled with ‘smi­leys’ ap­peared. I se­lected the one that I wanted and in­serted it at the end of my email. When I was done, I read through my mes­sage once be­fore click­ing ‘send.’ In sec­onds, my let­ter was sent. A few min­utes later, I heard my best friend gig­gling in the other row as she read my email. She sent one back to me im­me­di­ately.

Ev­ery­one was sorry when the les­son came to an end. I de­cided to use my new email ac­count to send mes­sages to my friends. I could even send one to my mother, who was at work.
