Dear ...............,


Model Answer:

Dear Mr and Mrs Henry,

Recently, I came across an advertisement, in which you have asked for someone from Spain to teach the Spanish language to your two children. I have decided to apply for it because the opportunity would help me meet the cost of running an orphanage in a remote village of the war-torn country in Latin America while also exploring the beautiful continent of Australia at the same time.

In my defence of availing this opportunity, I would like to say that I have a bubbly and easy-going personality which makes it rather easy for me to relate to the children. Besides, I have also done babysitting job to help a few relatives of mine to take care of her two children after which I received some formal training on the first-hand experience in childcare. I have also finished a diploma in teaching children because I am passionate about teaching young children.

In addition to taking care of your children, I could also prepare some delicious Spanish food and delicacies on some special occasions to surprise your friends and families.

I am hoping that you would offer me the job. Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Maria Lucy

You recently organised an all-day meeting for your company, which took place in a local hotel. In their feedback, participants at the meeting said that they liked the hotel, but they were unhappy about the food that was served for lunch.

Write a letter to the manager of the hotel. In your letter:

- say what the participants liked about the hotel
- explain why they were unhappy about the food
- suggest what the manager should do to improve the food in future

Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you to give feedback about the impression of the attendees from our office who participated in the conference which was held in your hotel last weekend.

Firstly, the participants were satisfied with the room service because the staff members were professional and conserved the cleanliness of the rooms. Besides, the receptionists were extremely helpful and well-behaved. Moreover, I want to thank you for the pleasant arrangements and decoration at the conference venue.

On the flip side, although the main dishes were fairly good, the dessert and salads were a disaster - ice-cream was molten and jelly was completely tart. Furthermore, the vegetables in salads were neither properly cleaned nor fresh. I believe the food in the previous meeting was much better than this one.

In order to enhance the service in the hotel’s restaurant, I think it would be great if the kitchen assistants could ensure the cleanliness and freshness of the food. Furthermore, it would be better to hire more professional cooks and food specialists.

I hope you would consider my feedback. I look forward to carrying out more meetings in your hotel in the future.

Yours faithfully,

Samer Omar

Dear Mr and Mrs Abraham,

I am writing with regard to your advert that was published in a daily newspaper a week ago, seeking for an Arabic teacher for your two children. I would like to express my interest to teach your children Arabic, and I believe my abilities and experience are perfectly aligned with this job.

Being a native Arabic speaker and fluent in English, I am passionate about teaching, and these are the primary reasons for which you should hire me. Besides, I have been teaching Arabic as a second language in Australia for more than 10 years. In addition, I have obtained a master’s degree in education from Sydney University. But, which makes me the ideal candidate for teaching your seven and ten years old children is that I love to teach youngsters.

I am enthusiastic about teaching, especially when it comes to teaching children. Moreover, I feel connected to my motherland when I teach Arabic. Not to mention, it would give me a source of steady income. I consider myself a deserving candidate and would be indebted to you if you hire me.

I look forward to hearing a positive reply from you. I would also be ready to talk to you in details about how and when I can start.

Yours faithfully,

Samer Omar
