Sorry. We don't write letters for you.
You should make your own effort first.
Ok , i write my letter in english. I think there are many mistakes.
Madam , Sir
I am currently in my last year of high school (literary section) , and I am interested in your Bachelor's degree : History/English.Thanks to this specialisation in Literature during high school, I realised how important are these literary subjects to me, and that I now want to discover it further. These studies allowed me to develop my knowledge and contributed to my open-mindedness. I complemented these interests in my personal activities: I have been practicing violon for seven years at the Conservatoire and theatre for two years, during high school.
Naturally curious, I have a real appeal for the Shakespeare’s language and for the Anglo-Saxon civilisation. I would truly like to join this double license to be able to perfect my knowledge of both English and French History. This double approach can bring me a new vision of the contemporary world, not only in order to understand its origins, but especially because these subjects requires analysis, patience and curiosity. Many events upset me and question me, but they alwaysteach me more about our culture, and human being : its evolution, its qualities but also its failings. That explains my interest for this unique degree, combining English and History.Since I was hesitating between a Bachelor in History and English’s studies, the acquisition of this double culture would keep maintain the completeness of my professional choice: the teaching profession.I think that joining this Bachelor Degree would be a great opportunity for me. I hope that you will be interested in my application and that my motivation and interest speak on my behalf.
Thank you for your time and consideration,Sincerely yours,
this is for a french university. I want to study english history . So i should write an english and french cover letter. But i'm affraid that my english is not perfect.
But thank you for your reply.
Jasmin's advice, post #6, is sound.
I would suggest only two things:
1. Try to find out the name of the person you are writing to, and address him/her by name - Dear Dr Thierry
2. Here is an example sentence from the OALD entry for the noun 'appeal':
The prospect of living in the city holds little appeal for me.
Look up the word in another dictionary to see if you can find a second example sentence, and then rewrite yours:
I have a real appeal for the Shakespeare’s language and for the Anglo-Saxon civilisation.
. . . and it's more customary to align your text on the left rather than centrally.
