    Ref: {Name of the vacancy}

    Dear Sir or Madam / Dear [name]

    I am a thirty-eight year old Finnish french teacher and am writing to you with regard to the job advertisement on your website.

    I think I am the right person for this job because I have all the personal characteristics and professional skills you are looking for. I am good at dealing with problems and unexpected situations. My native language is finnish, but I can also speak English and ofcourse french.

    For further information about my person, qualifications and experience, I would like to refer you to the enclosed copies of certificates, letters of recommendation and CV.

    I would be very glad if you invited me for a job interview so that I can convince you of my personal characteristics as well as my skills.
    I am already looking forward to receiving a positive answer from you.

    Yours faithfully, / Yours sincerely,



    Thank you for your time,

    Blade Fire

    I have edited the personal details out of your post, as requested, and am reopening the thread. Are you sure you're a retired English teacher?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
