    cover letter Leonardo project

    Good evening,

    I am an italian student and I need your help! I decided to apply for an internship (Leonardo) and I wrote a cover letter. If you check it through in terms of grammar and style, I would be really happy! You can find my letter below.

    My name is V and I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Languages and Communication at the University of xxx in march 2014. I am interested in applying for your internship in order to acquire the background necessary for my future career.
    This internship would provide me with the ideal opportunity to assist at an organization and to expand my skills in different fields. I am especially interested in developing my knowledge and experience in Information and communication technology. I think the internet is continually breaking barriers everyday and it will become an even more essential part of people's lives so it is only sensible for companies to utilize this modern communication tool to their advantage, for this reason I would like to learn more about the new communication thechniques, something you cannot learn at school.
    I posses a working level of English and Spanish, in addition to my mother tongue Italian and I have started to learn French. I have been on study exchange at the University of Malta for five months, as an Erasmus student. This experience attests of my capacity of integration and adaptation which I think is essential when studying in in a foreign country, with different ideologies and cultural backgrounds offered by its students. Undoubtedly, this creates a great source of international knowledge and global vision which is a great benefit. Furthermore I worked for three months at Sevilla Palace Hotel in Seville as a trainee within the context of the International “Erasmus Placement Program”. This experience allowed me with the possibility to gain a valuable, international and practical knowledge in tourism and hospitality management.
    I am searching for an opportunity to discover a foreign culture while additionally enhancing my English knowledge and getting some practical experience, fitting to my studies. Here my general academic knowledge opens a wide field of deployment.
    I honestly believe that I am highly motivated for the challenge to be your Trainee and I am eager to put in the practice all the knowledge gained at the University.
    Thank you very much for considering my application. If you have any questions regarding my application, please feel free to contact me at my e-mail or vie telephone.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    Best Regards


    Your sincerely
    xxx

    Thank you in advance!

    V

    There are not a lot of mistakes, but there are a few. Repost it (after this one) putting the paragraph breaks in.

    I am pretty sure that you don't want to discover a foreign culture, but you want to learn more about a foreign culture.
