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.
Read this letter here.
If you want me to read your own sample letters, just let me know!
