When you wish to invite a friend to see you, I mean a friend who has never yet visited your country, you will have to give them some information about it and the culture you live in.
You will probably tell them a bit of your country's geography and biodiversity, i.e. its fauna and wildlife, like the koala in China and the Bengal tiger in India. If you wish to delve into politics, you could, but not many travellers are interested in this, unless that is their interest and they are actually going in a delegation to your country.
You could tell them a lot about your culture - aspects like art and architecture, some remarkable literary pieces, tell them about performing arts and bands or singers in your country. You could also talk about clothing, some special cuisine and traditions on certain occasions, like a wedding or other anniversaries.
If you're not interested in that so much, but you and your friends are very much into sports, well then tell them about your sports celebrities!
Let's practise a little:
Use the form below to help you put together some information about your country. Write as much as you wish - the line of space shown will enlarge as you type. Be creative and enjoy the exercise.
Do NOT worry, as your submission will not go public. I receive it personally and respond directly to you with corrections. I only publish your contribution on the website after asking you if you wish to share it with the rest of the members.
Packed with knowledge, published on Tuesdays.

Here we shall build some lessons to help you improve your writing skills.
Lots of lessons: cause & effect, comparisons, linking signals, relative clauses, presenting information, expressing emotions and grammar games, of course. We had more lessons on: intensifying adverbs and phrasal verbs, expressing various concepts such as addition, exception, restriction and ambiguity. Lately we started some exercises: likes/dislikes, frequency adverbs (twice), verb tenses, etc.
