Model Essay

Dear Sir,
I am writing to you in the hope that I may obtain information about accommodation in London.
I am going to study at London University for my Master’s degree next month and will therefore stay in the city for one year. Since my wife will come with me, the accommodation that London University has offered me might not be suited.
We are seeking accommodation that is just a short bus ride away from London University or even within walking distance, and is situated in areas where there is a relatively good supply of living goods. Besides, our ideal apartment might include a bed, wardrobe, study desk and lamp, dining table, and telephone. In particular, we need a kitchen which is fully equipped with a refrigerator, microwave oven, cook top, kettle, toaster, and cooking and dining utensils.
I will arrive in London at the end of this month, so I would be much obliged to you if you could recommend several accommodations I am looking for.
Your prompt and favourable attention to my inquiry would be highly appreciated.
Yours faithfully,
Ricky Thomson
