Talk over the phone (添削後)

I talked with a friend of mine on the phone yesterday for the first time in months. We used to get together 1)once a month at least a several years ago, studying English at a community centre or chatting over cup of coffee at an English school. She is a determined, energetic and affable woman among my friends, so whenever I'm spending time with her, I never fail to get something inspiring.
I would say we are different in many ways. She is familiar with English words in the news, and I'm not. I like studying English with movies and dramas, but she seems to find the way I'm doing somewhat less interesting somewhat. I like British English, but her English is completely influenced by American one. And I must say, she is much more younger than I am. I suppose those differences in character or background have really worked to maintain our friendship of years. I know she has any time to spare due to her tight schedule, but I hope we'll soon talk over the phone.


1) "once a month at least" is more idiomatic
2) "whenever I spend" is better

Hello! Thank you for your email this morning! I'm back home now!

> As you mentioned, even though the way to improve my skills is a far cry from yours, this is the reason why we've been inspired ever since we met for the first time.

I totally agree with you. The most precious thing between us should be mutual respect. We know there are differences, but we also know there should be differences. We respect each other, and we listen to each otehr. That's the most great asset to maintain our friendship.

> Well, sure thing! I'm always ready for you to talk over the phone. :D

I cannot wait!!!

Hi, friend!
Thank you for your time. As I had expected, we couldn't stop talking, did we.
As you mentioned, even though the way to improve my skills is a far cry from yours, this is the reason why we've been inspired ever since we met for the first time.

Well, sure thing! I'm always ready for you to talk over the phone. :D
