Pre-Intermediate Level >> Speaking and Conversation Materials/Discussion Starters >> This was a letter I really received from Demi (!). Oh, and it can also be used to practice 'should' for advice and lead onto a general 'agony aunt' activity.
Demi Moore Letter
Read this letter and decide what advice you could give her to help with her problems. Use "should".

My dearest Neil,
I hope you can help me because I have a very big problem and you are my last chance.
I have one son who is 26 and I love him very much. But I have many problems with him. He doesn't have a job and he gets up at midday every day and shouts at me if I don't have his lunch ready.
He says he has better things to do with his life than to get a job. Every day, he watches TV all day while I do his washing and clean his room. At 8p.m., he goes to the pub and comes back to the house with a different woman every night.
I worry about him and think that maybe I am too strict with him.
Please help me!!
