    Re: Another complaint letter, thanks for any feedback

    Sounds easy but I am working on polish software and it always tries to correct me to polish - it means that whole text is highlighted. :)

    I've just finished another one. I am trying to make it little shorte because for FCE you need 120-180 words. My previous works were waaaay to long.
    Also shorter sentences reduce possibility of making some grammar mistakes. I am also trying to do some selftaughting.


    - You need a job for three months in the summer, and you have seen an advertisement in a newspaper about a temporary job as a tourist guide in your town or city. Write a letter applying for the post.

    Dear Sir/Madame,


    Referring to your advertisement in The Flock Guardian, published on 7th of April I would like to apply for
    a position as a turist guide at your tour company.

    I am 21-years-old polish exchange student of Faculty of Turism on Flock University. This year I will finish my
    third year of study and during my summer brake I would like to start a part time job in your company.
    Being employed at your company is very important for me because I would not only be able to gain some
    experience in the filed of turism but also I could earn money for my further education.

    I can asure you that I am one of the best of the candidates for that position. If you take my education
    into consideration you will come to the conclusion that in a short time I will fit in [don't know if this
    is formal or rather infomal] to turist guide responsibilities. I have exelent personal skills and I work
    perfectly as a team member as well.

    If you need more information do not hesitate to contact me.
    I look forward to hear form you,

    Yours faithfully,
    Andrew

    Re: Another complaint letter, thanks for any feedback

    Sorry, that was a really ignorant suggestion I made - never considered that you might actually be using Polish software!

    You were right - this letter was better - except for that faculty sentence I could imagine it coming from one of my neighbors.


    I don't mind commenting on your practice letters, but if you want feedback from some other readers, maybe you should start a new thread. That might give someone else a chance to give you some opinions. Did you say you planned to take the exam soon?

    Dear Sir/Madame, [write out Sir or Madam - they may use Madame in England, I'm not sure]

    Yes, I am taking FCE exam pretty soon. Next week to be more accurate. That is why it is so important to me to improve a little bit.
