Diana’s letter of application for a course

Faculty of Humanities
Exford College
10, Green Street

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to apply for the intensive course in General English which is offered by your college in summer. I have chosen your college because you offer courses at all levels and provide full social programme including hobby clubs.

I am 15 years old and I have been learning English for ten years in Kaniv, Ukraine. As for my English level it is B1/B2. I am doing my best to improve my writing, reading and speaking skills. I would like to enroll at a course because it will be a great chance for me to improve my English skills.

I would prefer to attend classes in your college in August. Do you have any courses for teenagers which offer a lot of speaking practice in small groups? I would be very grateful if you could send me some detailed information about the courses that will be held in your school this summer, as well as what kind of accommodation you provide. As I am a student I would be interested in details of any discounts that are available, and the full price of a course including accommodation.

I hope that you will consider me for admission to the course.

Yours faithfully,

Diana Karlova
