Model Answer 1:
I am Alex Jones, an aspirant of the forthcoming training course on "Time Management", at your college. I am writing to enquire about the accommodation facilities available for the course seekers.
I am currently employed in the city of Boston, as a Chartered Accountant to a reputed firm. This discourse on time management (as detailed in your college website), and as I reckon, would serve the best in purpose for me. My only concern is about the accommodation amenities arranged from your end. The very intention of this letter is that, I would like to take the privilege of describing about my priorities on accommodation arranged.
First of all, it would be highly appreciated if I am rendered with a single home or flat, as I have had enough problems, prior with sharing my personnel space. Secondly, I would like to dwell in a calm and quiet environment, as tranquility of the work place is of at most importance for me. Lastly, I would be glad to stay close to the course venue, so as to ensure optimum management of time.
Last but not least, I plan to arrive on 19th of this month at your venue via road. I would be more than happy, to get myself comfortable with the new amenities, a day before the course actually commence. I really look forward to spend some quality time at your place.

Sample Answer 3:
I Ms Zona, studying in Vision Leaf College in Sri Lanka for last one year. I got an opportunity to participate in the short training course on report writing at Greenmount College in Nothern Ireland. This will be one week residential course.
Since I am new to the country, I do not have any friends or any contact person to request for an accommodation. This was an opportunity received by one of my friends and since she is sick I got this opportunity suddenly. I received this message in very short time period. Also I have only another one week time to prepare for this course and find accommodation before that. I seek your kind support to arrange an accommodation for this purpose.
Since I am a student and not attached to any employment, I search a place which is cheaper as possible. I would prefer to have a single room with common bathroom and latrine. If not possible to find that kind of an accommodation, I would prefer to have at least a shared room with any other college students.
The course will be start on 28th of February 2015. I need to attend to the place at least on 27th Evening. I would be thanking, if you could find a place to be stay on 27th Evening to 8th March 2015. Kindly contact me at any time through any of the following contact modes.
Ms K Zona.
