Reading text

Library card application

First name MIKE
Date of birth 08/11/1991

Phone 07796 345678

I declare the information provided is correct.

Signature Mike Esposa-Hernandez

Your checklist

Have you got everything you need?

[ ✔ ] a passport photo

[ ✔ ] a copy of my passport or other photo ID

[ ✔ ] proof of address

Your card will be issued within 15 days and sent to the address provided.


1. It's a good idea to write in capital letters so it’s easy to read, except for your email address and signature.

2. For dates, in the UK we usually write them DD/MM/YYYY (day-month-year). So, for 1 September 2018 you write 01/09/2018. In the United States it is MM/DD/YYYY so you write 09/01/2018.

3. If you don't understand every word on the form, don't panic. You can probably guess what information you need to write. Ask someone for help if you need to.

The last form I filled in was personal information form submitted for a university. it's interesting to know I fill three similar forms for three different part of the university, that's why I think this can be done once by an internal network of the university.

I filled in a form to get a vacancy for my young daughter in a kindergarten. In my country, I can get a library card on the same day, so here you do not need to wait 15 days to receive your library card. But, you can not forget the proof of address or the photo ID, because without these you do not get make your library card and will need to go back another day.

The last form I filled in was a form of request to open a fixed deposit account in the bank. I had to provide them all the information such as my name, age, address, telephone number(s), email address and the many more. It took me a lot of time. Here in my country, filling forms is very boring because of the language they use. They never use simple words and the sentences are so long. It takes a lot of time to read and understand what they really mean.

The last form i filled in was the resignation sheet. After worked for my ex-company for two more years, I was getting tired of the stuff. Thus, i think it's better to quit the job and take a break to learn something interesting than waste my time on the routine business.
