Subject: Courses in August

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,

Simona

Yes, I would like to study in UK. I am living in Liverpool. I have had a ESOL testing with E3 but there is no class for me at the moment. I hope I could take an ESOL English class next time.

of course, I'd rather study abroad and studying in the UK is my dream since I was a kid. It's the reason why I'm learning English now. I hope it will become a reality soon.
