Letter of request
Hello, teacher, my friend has asked me to help her to write this letter of request. Can you check for grammar errors. Thank you.
I would like to take one month off work in January 2013 to visit my mother who now lives in Shanghai. I plan to use my two weeks leave for 2013 and am willing to take unpaid leave for two weeks. I have not seen my mother (85 years old) for almost three years. Please approve my request. Thank you.
Re: Letter of request
If your friend is taking one month off in January 2013, she is presumably pretty much taking the whole of January off! I think the actual dates should be included. "I would like to take annual leave, from January 1st 2013 to January 29th 2013".
