Useful Language. Letter-Writing. Requesting information 01

With this audio we’re pushing our section of Useful Language a bit further, to include… letter-writing!

Why record audios of that? Well, you can learn to read the language we may use in letters. In this way, you’ll remember it better. You’ll probably consolidate your speaking skills and you are likely to improve in terms of not making certain kind of grammar mistakes — those “silly mistakes” you always make and that you keep not fixing because you insist in NOT proofreading your work!!! ;D

Listen now to this sample letter of someone trying to find out some information about language courses abroad.

If you want me to read your own sample letters, just let me know!

Useful Language. Saying thank you 01

Read the thank you notes on this Talking People link
This episode contains mostly drilling (the same structure with changes in some words), so at times I won’t be repeating each sentence twice, just once. It has two sections: first, a one-page list of useful sentences to thank people different kinds of things. Then, 6 different thank you notes or letters you could learn to be fluent in! If you wish to write Thank You Notes and Letters please, post them here for correction and subsequent publication!
