You are a member of the English club. You are going to have a farewell party for one of the members, Yasmin from Malaysia. You have received a note from Amelia, an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) and the club advisor.

Dear members of the English club,

It’s about time we decide when to have the English club farewell party for Yasmin. She’s leaving Japan on December 15, so the club members should meet sometimes next week. Can you ask Yasmin which day is convenient for her to come to the party and let me know? When the day is fixed, I’ll help you by planning a few nice surprises. Also, is it all right if I invite other students? I know some students from the tennis team who want to take part because they really had a good time playing tennis with her over the past six months.

Best wishes,
