Model Essay

Dear Sir I Madam,

I am writing in response to the advertisement your company placed in the local newspaper for a language training trip overseas. In fact, it is a unique opportunity and an efficient means for me to enhance my language ability beyond the boundary of my own country.

Although the cost of the training is relatively high for me, I suppose that there are enormous benefits of participating in this trip. As I am working for a multinational corporation, the ability to communicate effectively in a foreign language is a major concern of the job. Therefore, I would like to make full use of my paid vacation to further my language learning. Additionally, by means of this trip, I can develop my own method of studying language as well as the skills of independent learning. What is more, traveling to several places will surely broaden my horizons when I come into contact with exotic scenery and local customs.

However, whether I could be involved in this training program is determined by the selection procedure of your organization. By and large, I am convinced that I am fully qualified to be a member of this language training trip, both academically and financially. Therefore, I would appreciate it very much if your organization could take my case into careful consideration for this program.

I look forward to receiving a favourable reply at your earliest convenience.
Yours faithfully,
Timethy Horton
