[DW] Informal Letter: Making a Choice (Hotel vs Homestay)

Hello, how are you? Today we’re going to look at a DW question, an Informal Letter. Is it everyone’s favourite DW format, I wonder? I’ve had many students tell me it’s the easiest one to write. Good for you šŸ˜‰

In your letter, you should:

  • Describe all the details of the two places
