You wrote to the Harvey School of English last month asking for a brochure and for details of how to arrange accommodation. You have received nothing. You have telephoned but only spoken to the caretaker. Write a letter to the school owners. Explain the situation and tell them what you want to happen. Dear Sir/Madam, I wrote to your school last month asking for a brochure and for details of how to arrange accommodation. I have now been waiting for five weeks for a reply but I have received nothing yet. On Tuesday of last week I telephoned your school at 10 o’clock in the morning but I was only able to speak to the caretaker. I would be very grateful if you would send me your brochure with an application form so I can apply to take an intensive English language summer course in July or August. I would also be grateful for information about the living accommodation you arrange and an application form for this too. I would like to stay with a family to improve my English. As I am vegetarian and a smoker, I would need a family which could accommodate these habits. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Yours faithfully Beatrice Ligorio
You have bought a packet of breakfast cereal at Gibbon’s supermarket. When you opened it at home it had clearly gone bad. Write a letter of complaint to the manager of the supermarket and explain what you want to happen Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to complain about the quality of some Crunchy Flakes breakfast cereal I bought at the Highgate branch of your supermarket on Tuesday, December 19th. When we opened the box the following morning in order to have our breakfast, we found the cereal was no longer crunchy but was soggy and covered in blue-green mould. It was clearly inedible. On closer inspection we found that the sell by date on the side of the packet was 5th April 1994. The packet must have been on your shelves for seven years. I would like to know why your store is selling goods which are clearly dangerous to the public. I would like a replacement packet of cereal, as well as USD 50 in compensation for the inconvenience and distress you have caused my family. This is not the kind of behavior I would expect from a supermarket which has such a good repetition in the community. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours faithfully, Gunter Mueller
You have decided to join a club which puts pen friends from around the world in touch with each other. Write a letter giving details about yourself and about the sort of person you would like to correspond with. They will use this information to put you in touch with a suitable person. Write a letter to the club providing this information Dear Sir/Madam, I read the advertisement for your organization in the Greek Chronicle and I would like you to send me some information on how I can become a member. I am enclosing some details about myself and the kind of person I would like to write to. I am 28 years old and I live on Kythnos, an island in the Aegean Sea. I graduated from Athens University with a degree in agriculture and since then I have been working as a researcher into more efficient methods of the fish farming industry here. My general interests include nature conservation, swimming and sailing and when I am in Athens, I enjoy going to the cinema and art galleries. I would very much like to correspond with someone whose interests are similar to mine and who is English speaking as I want to have practice in the language. Although age is not very important to me, if possible, I would prefer to write to someone who is between 20 and 35. I look forward to your reply. Yours faithfully,
