    Re: Writing an appropriate cover letter

    It's hard to write a letter from scratch for a person you don't know. Here's a link to sample cover letters, which helped me too when I needed it (Cover Letter Format).

    Your English is good, I think the best thing is to write the letter yourself and post it here for critique and revision.

    Best regards
