Dear Sir or Madam,

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

Also, do you have any accommodation for those dates?

Thank you for your help.

I would have liked to when I was younger, but now I would prefer to work or travel in the UK.

Sure I would like to study in the UK. I would like just to trip in the UK but it's not so simple to get visa in there

Sure. I'd like to do an MBA there because they provide a high quality education.

Hi Sr or Madame
I have a question: why in the task 1 in te sentence the answer is true?
1. Simona is writing to Susan for the first time.
I think that, the first email Simona wrote was to the City Language School, she didn't do directly to Susan. Is it right?
Thanks in advance for your prompt response.

Hello PaulaRuiz,

Yes, that's correct. Also, the email explains why Simone is writing and says that she has seen the website, which suggests that she has not had any contact with the school before this email.
