Dear Mr. Wang,
I am very sorry to tell you that I am going to graduate this June and cannot go on with my job as a tutor of your daughter. It has really been a pleasant experience to teach your daughter English as she is such a lovely and smart girl. Here I take great pleasure in recommending to you my friend Lily who is a sophomore majoring in English in my university. She is particularly willing to take the parttime job of an English tutor when she knows about your daughter.
Lily is an excellent student. Especially her spoken English is both fluent and proficient, which can positively influence the person speaking with her. Moreover, as a lively, cheerful and easygoing girl, she is good at communicating with others.
Therefore, I am confident that she is highly competent for the job and will help your daughter make further progress in English.
You are asked to write a letter of recommendation for Miss Liu Ming who wants to study for the Masters Degree under the supervision of
Professor Smith who was once your supervisor in your graduate study. Write a letter to Prof. Smith in about 100 words. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li
Dear Prof. Smith,
It has always been a great pleasure to write to you since I can never fail to get help, inspiration or enlightenment from you. Now I am writing to recommend to you Miss Liu Ming who wants to pursue her graduate study for the Master’s Degree under your supervision.
Miss Liu Ming was one of my classmates in Tianjin University. She was one of the most excellent students in our university as can be seen from her straight A grades on all subjects. After graduation she worked in Tianyi Biological Company for three years, which considerably added to her practical experience.
It is my belief that with her intelligence, diligence and rich experience, Miss Liu Ming has great potential for further development in the field of pharmacology both theoretically and practically. Therefore, I
recommend her to you with no reservations.
Suppose one of your friends is going on a selftour in your hometown. Write a letter in about 100 words to make a suggestion to him/her. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead. Sample:
Glad to hear from you. You have made a right decision to travel in my hometown,Sichuan because it is a place with picturesque scenery.
Selftour is always my favorite, too, as it gives me more freedom to choose the beauty spots and arrange the tour. To you, a campinglover, I highly recommend the Ice Mountain in Songpan County. First, you can directly go there by bus from Chengdu or Mianyang. The accommodation in Songpan is very convenient since there are quite a lot of private hotels with clean rooms at low price. Then you can hire a guide who will prepare a horse, a tent and some other things for you. After that, you will visit the beautiful scenery on horseback by following the guide during the day and enjoy camping at night. My journey there last July has really brought me great pleasure and unforgettable memory.
Wish you a happy tour.
Suppose one of your friends is going to take the CET6 and asks you for suggestions on how to make preparation. Write a letter in about 100 words to him/her. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead.
What a surprise it is that you are going to take this June’s CET6 since you are only a freshman in Fudan University! Anyway, your courage and efforts are worth praise.
To get fully prepared for the test, I think, you need to first enlarge your vocabulary, which is the basis of all parts. Second, you need more exercises, especially exercises of reading comprehension, in order to improve your test skills. Then you should practise writing constantly. You can email your compositions to me and I will correct them for you in time.
In a word, every effort is rewarding. I am looking forward to your success.
Write a letter in about 100 words to a high school to apply for a teaching position. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead.
I am writing to apply for the position as an English teacher that you recently advertised in Sichuan Daily. I take keen interest in the post because I find that my major and experiences well meet the
requirements you stated in the advertisement.
Being interested in English teaching, I pursued my graduate study in the direction of teaching methodology
in Sichuan International Studies University, and got a Master’s Degree in 2003. I was a top student through the three academic years, as can be shown in the enclosed resume and reports. After graduation, I ever
taught English in a Xi’an high school. As Sichuan is my hometown I love very much, I have decided to move back and so I venture to apply for the position in your school.
If I were favored with an interview, I would be most grateful. Please contact me at 13573889787. Thank you for your consideration. Best wishes.
Suppose you are going to graduate from Shanghai University. Write a letter in about 100 words to a company to apply for a post of salesman. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead.
Keenly interested I am in the post of salesman you have advertised on the job market because I think my major, marketing, and my practical experience particularly match your requirements of the post.
I will graduate from Shanghai University this June and get a B.A.
degree. I have always been one of the top ten students in my class. I got excellent grades in not only required subjects but also optional courses such as economics, statistics and Chinese literature. Besides, I have passed CET6 with a mark over 80. Moreover, during the four years, I took an active part in all kinds of practices of sale promotion, which greatly added to my experience in marketing and interpersonal
communication. In a word, I am confident that I qualify for the post. If my application were taken into favorable consideration, I would be most grateful. I am looking forward to your early reply.
Enclosed are my score reports and resume.
Suppose you were taken good care of by Doctor Liu when you were in hospital. Write a letter in about 100 words to him to show your gratitude. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead.
Dear Doctor Liu,
It is a great pleasure to extend my sincere thanks to you for your careful treatment and attendance when I was in hospital this March. On that night, I got acute appendicitis and was sent to your hospital by my roommates. Yet I was very lucky to have you, an experienced and skillful doctor, on duty. You immediately diagnosed my disease,
hospitalized me and arranged a timely operation for me. In the following days you took good care of me and talked to me from time to time to release my pain.
It was all because of your attendance and perfect professional skills that I could recover so soon. Therefore, thank you again and I wish I would have the chance to pay you back for all your kindness.
Suppose your friend lent you a book and gave you some suggestions when you made preparations for CET6. Write a letter in about 100
words to show your gratitude. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead.
My thanks to you for your help with my preparations for the CET6 are beyond words.
Originally I only wanted to ask you for some advice on the coming test, as you were so good at English. But to my surprise, you gave more help to me than I had ever expected. You not only wrote down ten
suggestions for me but also showed me how I could arrange my time and what I should do in each month before the test. Besides, you lent me the book I needed very much when you learned that I had not yet got it. It was really kind and considerate of you.
Your unreserved help enabled me to make efficient preparations and at last encouraged me to pass the test. So I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude again.
Suppose you cannot attend your sisters graduation ceremony as expected for some reason. Write a letter in about 100 words to make an apology to her. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead.
Kindly excuse me for my not being able to attend your graduation ceremony next Wednesday as I have promised.
You know, there will be a meeting of great importance to my company next week inNanjing. But the person who was originally appointed to it is now seriously ill in hospital. And I have been asked to take his place to attend the meeting and make a speech on behalf of my company. On the one hand, it is a task assigned by my boss out of his trust in me. On the other hand, I do regard it as an opportunity to both display and enhance my abilities. So I am afraid I cannot be present at your graduation ceremony.
Though I have decided to send you a gift to celebrate your graduation, I really regret that I cannot give you my sincere congratulations on the spot, for I know any gift can never parallel a warm word spoken
personally by a family member. I do feel terribly sorry. Please forgive me.
Suppose you have accepted Mr. Zhangs invitation to dinner, but you have to change your plan for some reason. Write a letter in about 100 words to make an apology to him. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using Li Ming instead.
Dear Mr. Zhang,
It was very kind of you to invite me to dinner in your house the day after tomorrow and I originally accepted it with great pleasure. But now, much
to my regret that I may not be able to keep my promise because my sister was injured in a car accident and I must look after her in the hospital for several days.
The accident happened suddenly and all my family are now busy dealing with it and caring for my sister. So I don’t think I will have the time to go to the dinner and even if I go, I am afraid I will hardly be in a cheerful mood, which may spoil the party.
I am very sorry for that and really regret that I would miss such an excellent chance of enjoying the perfect dishes with friends. Besides, please give my regards to Mr. and Mrs. Rogers when they come to dinner.
