Dear Sir or Madam
I saw your advertisement for English course in this month’s English Today magazine and on internet, too. I am interested in attending this language English course. I would like to visit your school this summer.
I have studied English for eleven years but I cannot speak very well. I have been to England for two months. But I think it is too little and I feel that this is now necessary, especially to improve my pronunciation. Please, could you send me more information about your courses, and an application form? I would also like some information about accommodation. If you haven’t got any accommodation for me, I will live in some hotel. My favorite subjects are: german language and math. I am very ambitious, very clever and friendly, I like reading book. My favorite kind of book is encyclopedia and other english books. I think I am suitable for this english course.
I enclose my curriculum vitae. Please let me know, if you need more information. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
