School and Education

You are a student at a language school in New Zealand studying Business English. Part of the course is a summer work placement programme. Unfortunately, you have just learnt from the school that this programme has now been cancelled. Write a letter to the School Principal. In your letter:
  • state your reason for writing
  • describe the problem and your concerns
  • explain what you would like the Principal to do.
Write at least 150 words.

Dear Mr Scheer,

I am writing this letter to express my deep disappointment with the news that the work placement programme has been cancelled this summer.

One of the main reasons I chose to study Business English at your school in July and August was the chance to participate in the work placement programme. There are many English schools in California that offer Business English, but not many who offer the chance to go and work in a local company as part of the course programme. Your school is more expensive than the competition, but I was happy to pay extra because I thought the course programme was better quality. Now however, I am very unhappy because I have spent a lot of money and I am not getting the course I want.

As the course programme is now very different to the one advertised, I would like to request a full refund of the money I have paid for this course. I will try to contact other schools in California, or maybe New York, which run Business English courses and can guarantee a work placement as part of the course.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Yours Sincerely,
James charles

You saw an advertisement for a tennis course in England but you have one or two problems and can’t stay the whole course. Write a letter to the course director. In your letter,
  • explain your interest in the course
  • describe your problems
  • find out if a refund is possible
Write at least 150 words.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I’m writing in response to your advertisement on your website for a tennis course in Bath, England.

I have always wanted to play tennis so I’m very interested in joining the course; however, I do not have my own racquets and don’t wish to buy racquets at this time. Is it possible for me to hire racquets and balls for the duration of the course? Also I have poor eyesight and have to wear glasses all the time. I would like to know if your course is suitable for someone like me.

I’m afraid that I have to be back in Malaysia by 31st December so I am unable to stay in England for the whole three weeks. Is it possible for me to get a partial refund if I want to leave one week before the end of the course?

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
Philip Wong

Your find that your study load is too heavy. Write a letter to your college teacher explaining why you need to withdraw from two courses. Ask if it is possible to obtain a refund. You should write at least 150 words.

Dear Prof. James,

I am writing to formally request to withdraw from two courses: Introduction to Elementary Education (EDU602) and Teaching Methods (EDU 619)

The main reason for reducing my course load is that I am finding it extremely difficult to manage six courses. In the beginning of the term, I was perhaps overly optimistic about juggling both my full time studies and my part time job (20 hours/week). Because I really must work part time, I have no other choice but to decrease my course load. I am planning on taking the two courses during the summer semester, if they are available, so that I will be able to complete all the courses for the degree program by the following year.

I would also like to request a tuition refund, and hope I am not too late to receive the full reimbursement. I am sorry for any inconveniences I have caused by this change in plans. This decision was not taken lightly, and I do appreciate the kind consideration you have shown to me.

Thank you for your attention to these requests. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 277-9144. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely yours,
Jane Carter
