Dear Mr. Nick Jones,
I had been searching for a job when i discovered the advertisment in the local newpaper, in which you were offering a post at your holiday club.
I am an eighteen year-old student at King’s College and I have a part-time job at the local library, as an assistant. In the last three years, I have been attending English courses and I have achieved a high score at an exam involving the language.
Since I started highschool, I have always enjoyed helping children in need. I was usually participating in children’s parties as a helper, but I was also caring for the one’s in the street by giving them food and by giving advice whenever they needed it.
I love children and I do my best to make them happy. I am comunicative, hard- working and patient.
In the end, I think I will manage with the challenges this job may offer. I inclose my curriculum vitae and a photography. I am looking forward to your reply!
Content — 5. All content is relevant to the task and the target reader would be fully informed. The reader learns in detail about the writer’s experience of working with children and their knowledge of English.
Communicative Achievement — 4. The conventions of formal letters of application are used generally effectively to communicate straightforward ideas. The tone is consistently formal and ideas are expressed clearly and persuasively to hold the target reader’s attention throughout. Greater control and range of key language of letters of application, for example closing statements and greetings, would improve the overall effect on the reader.
Organisation — 4. The text is well organised and coherent, making effective use of a variety of cohesive devices to introduce and connect ideas. There are good examples of internal cohesion, particularly in the third paragraph. Paragraphing is used effectively to present each key point.
Language — 4. There is a range of topic-specific vocabulary which is generally used well (an exam involving the language; helping children in need; as a helper) and a range of simple and some more complex grammatical forms is used with a good degree of control. There are some errors, for example the inappropriate use of the exclamation mark, with spelling and the choice of past tense, but these do not impede communication.
