    Exclamation Formal letter (CAE TEST)

    Hello everyone!

    I've written this formal letter for the CAE writing part, but I'm not sure it's ok.
    I was wondering if you guys could have a look and correct it a little bit.

    Thank you very much


    THIS IS THE LETTER:

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am writing with regard to your article “Middle Age crisis”, which appeared in last Sunday’s edition. I should like to make it clear that comments made seem to have some inaccuracies.
    Firstly, contrary to what you suggested in your report, this year the Medieval Fair had an unbelievable attendance and we had to deal with the lack of car park. Moreover, for the next year we are considering the possibility of extending it, in order to avoid future inconveniences for our guests.
    As a part of the committee of the Medieval Society, I must also disagree with your remark on the archery display. We are absolutely certain that children were thrilled with it and many of them told us they would like us to repeat it again next year. Furthermore, as far as the dancing display is concern, I would like to point out that it was rather professional and so many people commented on the high standard of it.
    Finally, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that we did not have enough space for all the stalls of traditional cook and arts and crafts. However, we are working on a new way to sort it out for the next event.
    I would appreciate it if you would correct the article with all this information. I look forward to receiving your response.
    Yours faithfully
    Alice Johnson

    We can't help you with your work, your teachers want to know what you can do, not what we can do.

    Re: Formal letter (CAE TEST)

    Thanks for your note I appreciate your effort trying to make this forum real useful for those who want to learn English. It really is a fantastic tool.

    Let me explain my case.
    I'm studying for the CAE test on my own because I'm working and I can't attend English classes. The most difficult part for me it's the writing because I don't have here anyone to review my essays. I found out about this Forum and I thought it could really help in my situation.
    I greatly appreciate if you could reconsider reviewing some of my essays.

    Thanks so much
    Best regards
    Ali

    Re: Formal letter (CAE TEST)

    You have explained why you want this to be looked at so I have moved your thread to Editing and Writing Topics. If there is someone who is prepared to assist you after your explanation, then there is much more chance of them doing so in this part of the forum than in the Ask A Teacher section.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
