How do I write a letter to a Spanish friend?

I have to write a letter to my spanish freind descibing my spanish classroom. i have to include most of these vocab words: la bandera, el cartel, la computadora, el disquete, la mochila, la pantalla, la papelera, el raton, el reloj, el sacapuntas, el teclado, el escritorio, la mesa, la silla, la puerta, la ventana, al lado de la, alli, aqui, debajo de la, deante de la, detras de la, donde,  en, encima de la, de, mi, tu, Es un (a), hay, and que es esto. Other vocab words are fine as well but i mostly have to use these. I also should ask my friend some questions about her classroom, say where things are located in relation to each other, i have to use estar form (estan, estamos, estar, esta, estais and estas) and i also have to use hay form correctly and plural of nouns and articles correctly.

Yikes!

It is not difficult, actually. All you have to do is FIRST form the sentences using the parts of the classroom. What your teacher wants is to know whether you can grasp the concept of using your nouns BEFORE your adjectives which is the biggie in learning Romance languages such as French, Spanish, and Italian.

Ok: First, write down the parts of the classroom that you need to describe- **We couldn't possibly do it for you unless we have seen your classroom**. Try something such as:

La bandera de los Estados Unidos esta en la parte derecha del salon.

El escritorio de la maestra esta al frente del salon y al frente de los estudiantes.

Los estudiantes se sientan de frente al escritorio de la maestra.

La pizarra es blanca y grande.

Las ventanas son grandes y puedes ver afuera hacia el patio.

As far as the letter to your friend goes, ask: Como es tu salon? *Use the accents*

Most importantly, always begin your letter the way a Spanish person would:

Querido amigo,

Como estas?  Yo estoy muy bien! Dejame contarte de mi nuevo salon de clases. Es muy bonito! Lo voy a describir en esta carta. Luego me dices como es tu salon de clases. Bien?

And then begin to describe. Hope it helps!
