Letter Writing # 236 - You have seen an advertisement for a community college

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have seen an advertisement for a community college that needs teachers for night classes.

Write a letter to the community college. In your letter,

  •  say why you are writing
  •  describe your interest to work as an English teacher
  •  explain why you would be a suitable teacher for that community college

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,


Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to express my interest to work as an English teacher at your community college on the night shift. I am applying for this post in response to an advertisement which was published in a local daily newspaper a couple of days ago.

I have been looking for this kind of opportunity for a long time to teach English, but, because of my day-time job, I have not been able to do it so far. Now that you are offering such an opportunity, I want to grab it with my two hands, not only to teach the arts of English communication to the students but also to contribute to a good cause.

In support of my eligibility to teach English at your college, I have completed a Bachelor degree in Education, and I have a short certification course on "Grammar, Vocabulary and Accent Training". Besides, I have also done some home tutoring in English teaching for young children before.

I am confident that I will be able to do a fine job of teaching English at your college, only if you give me a chance.

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Bower
