Focus on writing: Reference
Hi! what's up? :P
I was assigned this task -CAE course- and I'd you to give me some tips so as to cope with this task - vocabulary and layout would be great. Or, an example.
An american company is opening a new English language school in your town. Someone you have known for a long time has applied for the job of receptionist at the school, and has asked you to write a character reference.
You should write a detailed reference, indicating how long and in what capacity you have know this person, and including relevant information about their abilities and personality, and why you would support their application.
Thanks in advanced
Re: Focus on writing: Reference
Think about what you know about this person and what you want to say. I would organize the letter this way, by paragraphs.
