    Post How to write a formal letter to a school?

    Hi, teacher and everyone reading my thread!
    I want to study abroad in England and I am gonna write a letter to a school asking for the scholarships. Please help me with my letter because I really don't know how to write it in a formal and polite way.
    Thank you so much!

    Make your own effort first, and then post it for our comments.

    You can clearly write in good sentences alread.

    Avoid 'gonna' - it's not even acceptable on this board.

    Make your own effort first, and then post it for our comments.

    You can clearly write in good sentences already.

    Thank you for your guide. Here is my letter's form, please take a look and leave me some comments:
    Dear Madam/Sir,
    My name is Devon Pham and I am ....years old and will be ... this December. I am a Vietnamese student and I study in Hanoi-Amsterdam school.
    I love and want to study abroad in England. My teacher recommended that ... is the best high school for me. I have visited your school's website and everything of the school impressed me so much. I would like to know if your school has some scholarships for foreigners.
    Thank you very much for spending time to read this letter! I hope that you will reply me as soon as possible.
    Yours Faithfully,
    Devon Pham

    And by the way, if the school regrets me to join, will I write a letter back to them to thank their reply?

    Dear Sir/Madam,,

    My name is Devon Pham. I am ....years old and will be ... this December. I am a Vietnamese student and I study in Hanoi-Amsterdam school.

    I love England and want to study there. My teacher recommended that ... would be the best high school for me. I have visited your school's website and everything about the school impressed me so much. I would like to know if your school has some scholarships for foreigners.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to read this letter. I hope that you will reply me as soon as possible.

    Yours faithfully,

    Devon Pham

    And by the way, if the school regrets that I am unable to join, shall I write a letter back to them to thank their reply? I don't think that would be necessary.
