Write a letter nominating one person for the exchange program

Dear Editor,

I am writing in reply to an article in your magazine about an exchange program in Boston. I would like to nominate my brother.

First of all, my brother's name is Antonis Sifakis and he is a 22-year-old university student. He speaks English and German well. Moreover, he likes travelling all around the world in order to become familiar with local traditions and practise his foreigh language skills. All the trips he has made are the main reason I recommend him because they have helped him become very sociable and, thus, he will definitely get on well with other participants. Also, he is very responsible, patient and mature, while he loves sports, as he is mad about cycling and skiing.

In my opinion, this exchange could be of great benefit to him, since he has never been to Boston before and he always wanted to travel there. (not necessary, you talk about the benefits here: Antonis would be a great choice) Antony is also planning to study abroad, which means that such an multicultural experience as the one you offer will allow him to taste the life in a foreign country. In addition, when he gets his degree, he is going to continue his studies on the cultural roots of USA. Afterwards, he will be able to write about it in the blogs he maintains and express his opinions and experiences concerning the program.

All in all, I feel he could really benefit from the experience, and I hope that you will consider my brother when choosing the group. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Manolis Sifakis.

  1. Excellent work once again Manolis! Your vocabulary and grammar have greatly improved! The organization is terrific, as well.

    *Be careful with the -s in the present simple!
    * Avoid using too many linking words and do not repeat the ones you use. (e.g. 'as')

    We will say more in person soon! Great job! Keep blogging! :-)
