    Could you chek my grammar, please?

    Could you check this letter to my previous employer? Thank you.

    Dear mr Brown,


    I used to work for you as a trainee designer in 2014. This traineeship was part of the Leonardo da Vinci programme.
    I would like to ask you for the permission to mention you in my CV as a referee, b
    ecause my work for your company provided me with the skills that may be significant in my possible future occupation. Please let me know if this is possible.

    I enclosed your reference letter from April 2014.


    Best regards

    I would change just one thing, thus:

    I worked for you as a trainee designer in 2014.

    What is a trainee designer?

    Trainee designer means apprentice. It was something like a work experience programme.

    You need to capitalise "Mr".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
