5-3 A Letter to Mum
I have been to the Changzhou Badminton's Training Center for a week. The weather is very hot here. We train for 4 hours a day. The coach is very strict with us.
The room that we live in is comfortable and the meals are good. The coach asks us to do everything by ourselves. I have some friends here now. We play chess，and cards, and watch television every evening. We are very happy.
I will return in two weeks and I miss you very much. East or west, home is best. I will train harder and I will tell you more when I come home.
