Speaking

I spent a lot of time with my kids. I didn’t want to get up early in the morning so my husband would get up early. He spent two hours to play with kids. When I get up to play with my kids, he would be cooking. After lunch, my kids would nap. When they get up, we would draw some cartoons. After dinner, they would play with each other. I think the situation doesn’t affect them. In the day, they play with each other. When we come back, we can hear them from the door.

Writing

Dear Mr. Li,

This email is about my lateness tomorrow.

I am sorry to say that I will be late for 2 hours tomorrow morning. Because there is something wrong with my air condition and it cannot be working now. So, I called the maintenance and he said that he would come at 8 tomorrow morning.

I think it maybe will spend me 2 hours. So,I ask for a 2 hours off first.

I will go to the office as soon as possible .

I look forward to hearing from you whether my leave will be allowed or not.

Yours Sincerely,
Sally
