BEIJING, April 21 (Xinhua) -- A group of students from Niles North High School in Illinois, the United States, have sent a letter to Chinese President Xi Jinping asking about his hobbies and work.

The following is an English translation of the letter.

Dear President Xi:


We are high school students from Chicago. Our school is Niles North High School in Illinois state in the United States. As we are studying Chinese now, we would like to write to you in Chinese.

We like speaking Chinese, and we like our Chinese teacher. We like writing Chinese characters and having Chinese food. We like to say "great," "I love you," "friend," "come on," "just so so," "hamburger" and "tired" (in Chinese). We all love music. But none of us like doing homework.

Do you like listening to American music? China is very big and beautiful. We want to go to China to take a look.

Do you like your job? Is it tiring? Do you have any friends? Do you speak English? How old are you? Which country's cuisine do you like? What are your hobbies? Do you like the United States?

We think you are a good person, and handsome, too. We look forward to your reply.

Thank you!

We wish you a happy Year of the Pig!
