Sample Answer 1:

Dear Mr Oliver,

I am a student at your training institute, writing to inform you that I am unable to continue my course as I am due to start a full-time job from next week. I am hoping that you would either let me continue the evening course or permit me to discontinue it.

I am currently enrolled in a three-month-long Graphics Design course at your institution, and so far the programme has proven to be immensely useful. I have just finished my first two weeks.

Last Monday, I got a call from Soft Tech, a reputed IT company, and I am expected to start my new job from the beginning of June. The timing will contradict my classes, and hence I would like to know if you have any evening courses that I can join.

As a junior consultant at Soft Tech, I am expected to work from 9.00 AM to 6.00 PM and the new job means a lot to catch up. I, therefore, request you kindly transfer me to an evening course or permit me to discontinue the course.

Yours sincerely,

Hanson Ariana


Sample Answer 2:

Dear Mrs Jenny,

I hope you are doing fine. I am one of your students and attending a three months training course, taught by you, on learning advanced IT Management skills. After attending this course for about a few weeks now, I must say that I am enjoying it since I have already learned quite a lot from it. But, unfortunately, it looks like I will not be able to continue this course any further because I have been offered a job at one of the largest private banks in our country.

At the new job, I will be working as a Junior IT Manager where my roles and responsibilities would be to coordinate and plan the IT activities of my organization as well as determine its IT needs. Anyway, while I really like this new job, offered to me, I would also like to continue this amazing course.

So, is there a possibility that you will start an evening course soon so that I can come back and take advantage of that opportunity?

I will wait for your response.

Yours sincerely,

Malcolm Jarvis
