Book: "Pride and Prejudice"
All the sisters, except Mary, went to walk to Meryton, where they met a new officer, Mr Wickham.
While they were talking with Mr Wickham, Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy had appeared. On recognizing the ladies in the group, the two gentlemen came directly towards them, and began the usual polite greetings. Suddenly Mr Darcy fixed his eyes on Mr Wickham, and after a few moments, touched his hat in greeting, but Mr Darcy seemed hardly to move a finger in return. Lizzy was astonished and wanted to know the reason for this behaviour.
At Meryton the young people had accepted an invitation from their aunt to supper and cards. Then, they heard that Mr Wickham was going to be there too. After a long talk, Lizzy noticed that the problem between Darcy and Wickham was because Mr Darcy’s father left Wickham, on his death, the best living to which he had the power to make an appointment, as soon as it became free. She too noticed, that is believed that Miss de Bourgh and her cousin (Darcy), will unite their fortune by marriage.
Lizzy and Jane were talking in the garden when Mr Bingley and his sister arrived to give their personal invitation for the ball at Netherfield. When Lizzy asked Mr Collins if he would go to the party, he accepted and promised her to dance specially with her. Although she wanted to dance with Mr Wickham, she accepted.
The day of the ball, Lizzy danced with Mr Collins. She left really ashamed about it. Then she danced with an officer and finally, Mr Darcy asked to her hand. Lizzy asked him about Mr Wickham and he changed quickly the subject. When Mr Bingley and Jane finished dancing, Miss Bingley went towards Eliza and warned her against Mr Wickham. Mr Collins discovered that Mr Darcy was a relative of a lady Catherine, so he went to ask him some questions.
After having supper, Mary got ready to entertain the company. Her voice was weak and her manner unnatural, so his father stopped her, Mr Collins continued at Eliza’s side and Mr Darcy took no more notice of her.
In this chapter, Mr Collins makes a proposal of marriage to Lizzy, but she refused it. Mr Bennet said to Lizzy: “your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr Collins, and I will never see you again if you do”

Writing: A letter
Thnaks for your letter. Y was glad to hear from you. I'm sorry I haven't written to yoy before, but this month I have been really busy.
Y haven't finished my exams yet, so I'm tudying very hard this term. I haven't got free time; I'm exhausted.
Last weekend, I went to the city center with my school. When we arrived, we started cleaning and throwing away all the rabbish in the streets. We made some leaflets about the environment: aerosols which damage the ozone layer, fumes of cars and lorries that cause dangerous illnesses and all the noises of the city. It was good fun, but hard to work.
I would like to know what you have been up to. Don't forget to write soon.
