    Posted by NIL Admin on May 27, 2021 at 10:44 AM

    How you begin and end your letter depends on the person it is written to and how well you know them. Letters can be formal or informal and we begin and end each type of letter in a different way. Formal letters are for official or commercial situations, written to people you do not know well, or have never met. Informal letters are generally to friends or relatives.

    You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
    You are planning to go and study English at a school overseas. You would like some information about their courses.
    Write a letter to the school. In your letter

    • Ask about the school
    • Say what kind of accommodation you wan
    • Mention any special requests you have (for example diet).

    Write at least 150 words.

    Dear Sir,

    I am writing this letter to inquire about the courses that your school offers. As I have considerable interest in learning more about English , I have planned to come Canada for the greater understanding of the programme.

    At the onset, I would like to ask about the school. Because I have never visited any country for education purpose, it would be a new set of experience for me . Especially , I want to know the operating hours of the school, I have read on the internet that institution offers flexible working hours which infact is a great deal for me . Besides that, because of the current pandemic, the classes would be conducted in offline or online mode.

    Furthermore, I would like to request you to consider my preferable accomodation. As I have never shared my room with anyone , one room set along with attached washroom is suitable for me, that would further allow me to have privacy in my room.

    Lastly, I want you to ask for the plant based food. Not only I have problem in eating cooked food but also I feel that they are hard to digest . After eating heavy foods, I continually fall ill. I do not want to cause a problem for you .

    I hope you will take my concerns into consideration.

    Yours sincerely, Date. 27-05-2021

      Great job writing this letter, there are few things I would like to mention here as a feedback;

      At the onset is not a correct phrase to use here instead use, “I would like to start with”

      A new set of experience(s)

      Besides that, I would like to have information about the mood of the classes, whether they will be conducted off-line or online.

    Dear Sir,

    I am a graduate student from Bozo School, which is a renowned Indian institution in the field of linguistics. As I am keen on pursuing an advanced course in English Literature more particularly from a world-class School like yours and as I stay overseas, I have visited your website to check the course details and I am writing to you to seek further details in this regard.

    Firstly, I would like to know whether you have 3 years part time course in addition to the 2 year full-time course advertised on your website. If so, it would be helpful if you could share the details thereof.

    Secondly, I would need a decent accommodation, preferably twin-sharing room and an attached kitchenette, as I usually read in the nights and it is quite comfortable to have a stove handy for coffee and the like. Of-course it need not be an elaborate kitchen and a basic cooking arrangement would suffice as I am a frugal eater.

    Thirdly, you may kind share details about the canteen food, as I consume only vegetarian food on Fridays for religious reasons and also advise if it would be possible to arrange for the same along with the costs for such arrangement.

    I look forward for an early response, so that I can file the necessary application and pay the requisite fees for the coming fall session.

    Thanking you,

    Yours faithfully,

    Jim Smith

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am interested in joining your institution to study English. Since your institution is one of the highly ranked colleges to teach English in my country to study abroad, I will be delighted to be accepted at your college.

    Although your website has lots of information about the English course, I need some clarifications regarding the school itself. I will be grateful if you send me more details about the scholarships that are provided to international students and if there are any part-time jobs I can apply to before I start my classes.

    Moreover, I am interested to find out if you provide private one-bedroom apartments or all shared accommodations with other students. I personally prefer to have my own bedroom so I can focus on my studies without being disturbed.

    Also, it will be very convenient if the accommodation is near the campus, so I don’t have to waste time during transportation.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Yours sincerely,

    Eman Rashed
