    Question help with a Motivational letter

    hi guys,
    i am applying for a school in design field. I have never been forced to make something like that on english before, so that is the reason i have no idea if its good.
    Also, i know my english is not really great...
    Could you please help me, any suggestions would be really appreciated....

    this is a raw version:

    I am writing to apply for the Intergrated Design in the International School of Design Köln.
    In the present, I am already studying at Fh Köln , in a section specialised on Medien-technik.
    My aim is to be a designer, therefore I would like to gain a deeper theoretical knowledge and practice experience in this field.

    I beleve that I already posses some skills, usefull in this area, and I am very motivatet to keep on learning.
    I am a sociable person, I enjoy working in teams and I believe that my individual abilities are best put into use within a team
    The interesst in visual art started for me about 7 years ago, in that time i've discovered that
    computer programs are a great way for me to express myself.
    The program that i am mainly refering to is Photoshop, along side with Adobe Illustrator, and Premiere.
    I have been using a very big chunk of my time (for some time, the most of my day) for learning of theese programs and expansion of my design horisons.

    In the meantime I have been on the practical training in a design agency Leo burnett, where the

    learning and understanding of a advertisement creation process, additionally streangtened my will of becoming a succesfull professional designer.

    I belive that a design school like KISD can teach me a lot more about design than i could possibly ever learn alone.

    Thank you very much for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response

    With this motiavational letter I would like to apply for the Intergrated Design at the International School of Design Köln.
    The search for a good designer education brought me to Germany since there was no possibility for me to acquire a deeper knowledge in this area in my homecountry. In the last 18 months that I have been living in Cologne, I've participated on several courses of German language and obtained the highest score on the DSH-test (DSH III), but since I find it easier to express myself in english, I've chosen it to be the main language of my application.


    After a period of searching for the right field of study, it seems to me that Integrated Design is something I would really enjoy studying.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I have always been interested in fashion and the way it affects our lives. Since my childhood, I have been interested in art and fashion design. I think it’s because I grew up in family of artists - my grandfather is an artist and my father is a fashion designer. Designing new clothes, accessories, and bags is something that really excites me. I have a skill for drawing and taking photography. I also have an interest in other fields of design, such as graphic and interior design. I have a passion for travel and for understanding different cultures, so the opportunity to meet students from all over the world who are interested in the study of fashion design is of value to me. I know that the diversity and academic excellence of the university's curriculum will bring out the best in me.

    When thinking about my career in the future, I see myself as a fashion designer and having my own line. I would like to open [the] first fashion house in (my country), eventually even entering the Asian market.

    I attended (school) open days 2 times and met with its staff. I felt the need to apply to (school). Studying at (school) is a perfect choice for me. Because the university is well known for its fashion design courses, I expect to be able to start a successful career after I graduate.

    I believe that I am qualified to study fashion design at your school. I like to design new clothes, explore new ideas and to look for the extraordinary in the fashion world. I know the value of hard work and teamwork, both cornerstones of success in the fashion industry. I am currently taking a teamwork course and drawing lessons.

    Thank you very much for considering my request. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to study at your school and to make a great contribution to the university's community.

    Sincerely,
