Dear Sir or Madam,

I have seen your website and I would like to know more about your English courses.

I am interested in taking a two-week course in August. Are there any places available, and what are the start dates?

Also, do you have any accommodation for those dates?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

Dear Sir or Madam, I've seen the website of your Japanese courses for beginners. I've been studying Japanese by myself for three months, and now I would like to get into contact with real teachers. Your course seems perfect for my aims, notably because of the importance you give to conversation (even between beginners) and writing as ways of having a better understanding of the language's structure. Would you still have any places for the course starting the 1rst June? If yes, could you give me some instructions about the preparation tasks that are mentioned at the website? Thank you for your help, Regards, Clarissa

Yes, i would love to study in the UK. wanna learn and speak the english language as good as a native speaker would. But it is really a difficult task for me. It would take time. I can understand what others say, but i cannot speak out my thoughts and ideas fluently, without any break.

yes, i would like to study in the UK and i woul like to speak english language perfectly. I want to improve my english but for me it is very difficult. It is difficult to speaking and to tell others what i think and what i want. And also, it is very difficult for me to understand what the others are saying.
