Hi Sue,
Just a short note to say thank you for the wonderful time I had at your school. I have now got a new job working for a very prominent company in my country. They were seeking someone to translate reports into English. The job commences next week.
Prior to leaving the UK, I was feeling quite nervous about returning to my country and I have to say that I still haven't got used to being back there.
Hope you like the postcard. It depicts my home city. I'll write again in due course.
Best wishes, Mamiko.
