Student or Learner
My nephew needs to write a letter of application for a workplacement. I'm not sure the following part is clear and correct, can you help me please?
"I am extremely interested in your offer as I am in my first year of study.
To confirm (?) my year, I must take (?) a 4-6 month training period in the Physics field from July to December 2014.
Being very keen on English and English culture, I would really like to live a real professional experience in London."
Thank you very much for your help.
I am not a teacher.
Here are a couple of suggestions.
I'm not sure what you mean by "confirm" but it might be "validate"; "take" could be "participate in".
This would give,
"To validate my year, I must participate in a 4-6 month training period in the field of physics between July and December 2014."
This point is just a question of style but, "I would really like to live a real…" doesn't sound very good. You may want to consider avoiding this sort of repetition by making a small change to "I would very much like to live a real…"
