A writing task (Letter of Application). First look at this Prezi which gives a great overview of the letter writing task in CAE.
Then review the Flo-Joe guide for formal letter language, the videos for writing a formal letter and the makeovers.
This activity reviews typical letter of application language
Then complete this task.
You saw in your local newspaper that a company you are interested in working for are offering student work placements in different departments. Write a letter of application to the Head of Human Resources..
Your letter should state what it is that attracts you to the company, the department you would like to be placed in and what qualities and experience you can offer them.
Write your letter. Please type it and send it to email@example.com This will make it easier for your teacher to mark and easier for you to incorporate modifications without having to do complete re-writes.
