  1. You have received this email from an old classmate, Alejandro.


Long time no see! How have you been?



Sorry to write to you out of the blue but I have a question which I thought you might be the perfect person to answer. Computer games have been experiencing a real boom in my country recently and I’m a bit worried that it could affect my children in a bad way. I know computer games have been popular in your country for quite a long time, so I’d like to hear your views. Do you think that computer games are bad, and is there anything good about them at all? Also, how do you think that I should control my children’s use of computer games?


Looking forward to hearing from you.


Best wishes
