Reply to a friend on his interest in the English
|5, Market Street
15th May, 19…
Thank you for your delightful letter which came a short while ago. I am pleased to learn of the new interest you feel in the English language, for it is the first step in your journey to success. No one, in his right senses, can deny that proficiency in English is essential to personal progress and happiness today.
One of the ways of improving your English is to read books on a variety of subjects. If you read books on one or two subjects only, your vocabulary will not expand fast enough. As you might know the English vocabulary consists of more than 600,000 words. Each subject has its own vocabulary. Therefore, the more subjects you read in English and more words you will learn to express yourself with greater ease and satisfaction.
You should also learn the basic rules of grammar. It is indeed difficult to write English confidently without some knowledge of grammar. The simplest books on English Grammar are those written by Milon Nandy. They can be found in any book shop. I am sure you have seen many of them.
Please write to me again if you need any help. Though I am not a master of the English language, yet I think I can be of some help to you.
Letter of thanks to a teacher

Dear Miss Jane,
You must believe me when I say that we found your lessons very interesting, and your kind words were an added inspiration to us to study hard.
I am sure it was only because of your good work that I and many others in the class did so well in the examination. I shall always remember you with affection, gratitude and respect as well my friends who passed the examination together with me.
You are indeed a teacher of outstanding calibre and it is a unique privilege to be taught by you.
Yours loving student,
To a station master informing him about the loss of one of your bags during a journey by train
|70, Hill Road,
21st Iuly, 19..
The Station Master,
There were several bags with me and in my haste to get through the gates to catch a taxi upon my arrival in Kuala Lumpur, I left a bag on the train. I discovered the loss of the bag only this morning.
The bag is brown in colour, measuring about 4ft by 2ft and made of leather. My name is printed on the front side of the bag.
Though there is scarcely a chance of finding the bag, unless it has already been handed in, yet I should be obliged if you would do your utmost to find and write to me as soon as possible.
To a friend describing a book fair
Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
21st Sept, 1997
My dear John,
The fair was held in Sungai Wang, which, as you know, is one of the largest shopping complexes in this part of the world. About twenty publishers and book shops displayed their books. There was such an interesting variety of books that I spent several hours at the fair, reading a few pages of a large number of books. To tell you frankly, I felt a sudden desire to read all the books that were there. I must admit that I have learnt many new things about human activities in all parts of the world from the many pages that I read.
I also bought some books which were sold at special prices. The special offers attracted large numbers of book-lovers. I wish I had enough money to buy more books.
The fair was open from morning till 10 p.m. and it was really a pleasure to see so many books and people around me all the time.
I really enjoyed the visit to the fair, a visit that has increased my thirst for knowledge. I am sure you would have felt the same, if you had also been there. I shall tell you more about it when we meet next.
Reply to a friend who has written to say how he was saved by a policeman
|311 , Bright Avenue.
lst July, 1997
In any case, it was wise of you to have run away from the crowd. Most people today are afraid to help others in trouble. Otherwise, the two boys would not have dared to harm you in the presence of so many people.
You were also lucky that a policeman was around. This is how God helps the innocent and punishes the guilty. One of the boys who attacked you was caught by the policeman, and you say he was wanted by the police. He is sure to be punished for all his misdeeds. However, please be careful for sometime. The boy who escaped might still be looking for you.

Reply to a friend who has asked you to join in his factory where the pay is more
|45, Main Road,
23rd Feb, 19…..
Dear Kim Seng,
It is indeed kind of you to ask me to join you in your factory where, you say, I could earn more than what I am earning at my present place of work. Well, Kim Seng, a better pay does not always mean a better job. You see, here I am earning only a few dollars less than what I could earn in your factory. But I do not have to pay house rent or for my meals, which would consume a large part of my income in your factory. Besides, though my present salary is low, there are chances of my earning a very high salary in a few years’ time. There might be no such chances in your factory. Finally, I stay with my family and so enjoy comforts which I do not expect to have if I work in your factory.
I must, however, thank you for taking the trouble to write to me and showing an interest in my affairs.
To a friend telling him about your new house
|256, Jalan Merah,
22nd February, 19…
As you know, the old house was very small and dark and unhealthy, and our part of the town had become so crowded and noisy that it was miserable to liver there.
Our new house is a bungalow, standing by itself in a large compound. It is large and roomy, and open on all sides; so we get plenty of fresh air. But it is so quiet, compared with the constant noise in the town. We are all delighted with it. You must come and see it soon.
From your friend,
To a friend telling him about the trouble you had with police recently
|140, Jalan Maxwell,
14th February, 19…
I had gone to the town on my bicycle for an afternoon show at the Rex Cinema. As soon as the show was over, it began to rain so heavily that I had to take shelter in a shop. When the rain stopped at last, it was already dark and I wanted to rush home. Before I could leave the town, however, two policemen stopped me for riding the bicycle without a front light. I told them that it was because of the rain that I could not reach home before dark; but they would not listen to my pleas. I was then taken to the police station where I had to pay a fine of $20. I was allowed to collect my bicycle from the police station only on the next day.
What a shameful affair it was; I shall never forget it.

My dear Mukri,
I shall return the money as soon as I am able to do so, and as I said. not later than the middle of next month. Thank you for sending me the money order for a hundred dollars and the kind words you have expressed in your letter.
Thank you again for your timely help. I shall never forget your kindness.
To a friend who has not repaid a loan of money
|4, Jalan Ipoh,
3rd Apnl, 19…
Dear Lim Swee,
I am writing to you to ask if you could return the money you borrowed from me almost a year ago. Perhaps you have forgotten about You see, I have a lot of things to do now, and I need every cent I can find. Perhaps you are also in the same position; but you will realise that I have waited to hear from you a long time. You had promised to return the money in a few days’ time; but now it’s almost a year. You must, however, believe me when I say that I wouldn’t have written to you if I hadn’t needed the money so badly.
I therefore hope that you will try to return the money without further delay. Please do not misunderstand me.
To a neighbor requesting him to keep his dog from barking and disturbing
|14, Japan 127
23rd August, 19…
Dear Mr. Nandy,
It is about your dog which has formed a nasty habit of barking the whole day. You can imagine how disturbing it is to have a dog near you barking day in and day out. As you are never at home during the day, you perhaps do not know how much noise your dog makes to disturb all your neighbors.
I should therefore be please if you would do something to stop your dog from disturbing my family so much; so that I may not have to complain to you again.

For the post of Assistant Secretary in a commercial firm
I am twenty-five years of age and I obtained passes in the G.C.E. Examination in the following subjects
1. English ‘O’ level.
After passing the G.C.E. Examination, I enrolled myself in a Commercial School where I passed in Typewriting, Book-keeping, Commercial Correspondence and Shorthand at the Advanced Stage of the I.C.C.I. Examination.
Though I have no experience, I am confident that the knowledge that I have acquired in commercial subjects will enable me to carry out my duties to your satisfaction, if you appoint me to the post. I should therefore be obliged if you would grant me an interview on any date convenient to you.
For the post of salesman in a large firm
Aged eighteen, I have just left school after obtaining ‘O’ level passes in English, Mathematics, Geography, History and Economics in the G.C.E. Examination of the Cambridge University. While in school, I played football and badminton and was an active member of the Literary and Debating Society. I was also on the Editorial Board of my school magazine. I took part in many inter-school debates and won prizes and certificates for my oratorical skill. As I am aware that a salesman in your firm has enough scope for his abilities of self-expression and for earning power, I am earnest in my desire to offer my services to you. I am prepared to travel extensively to promote your products. I therefore sincerely hope that you will give due consideration to my application and let me know your decision at your earliest convenience.

To apply for a sales representative position

Mr. William Jackson
Acme Pharmaceutical Corporation
13764 Jefferson Parkway
Dear Mr. Jackson,
While working toward my master’s degree, I was employed as a sales representative with a small dairy foods firm. I increased my sales volume and profit margin appreciably while at Farmer’s Foods, and I would like to repeat that success in the pharmaceutical industry. I have a strong academic background in biology and marketing, and think that I could apply my combination of knowledge and experience to the health industry. I will complete my master’s degree in marketing in mid-May and will be available to begin employment in early June.
Enclosed is a copy of my resume, which more fully details my qualifications for the position.
I look forward to talking with you regarding sales opportunities with Acme Pharmaceuticals. Within the next week I will contact you to confirm that you received my email and resume and to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your consideration.
To apply for the marketing research position
|March 14, 2008
Ms. Charlene Prince
Roanoke, VA 24040
Dear Ms. Prince,
In May I will complete my Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. As part of the requirements for this degree, I am involved in a senior marketing research project that has given me experience interviewing and surveying research subjects and assisting with the analysis of the data collected. I also have completed a course in statistics and research methods.
In addition to academic work, my experience also includes working part-time as a bookkeeper in a small independent bookstore with an annual budget of approximately $150,000. Because of the small size of this business, I have been exposed to and participated in most aspects of managing a business, including advertising and marketing. As the bookkeeper, I produced monthly sales reports that allow the owner/buyer to project seasonal inventory needs. I also assisted with the development of ideas for special promotional events and calculated book sales proceeds after each event in order to evaluate its success.
I believe that the combination of my business experience and social science research training is well-suited to the marketing research position you described. I have enclosed a copy of my resume with additional information about my qualifications. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to receiving your reply.
