WRITING A BASIC FORMAL EMAIL A2

 

From: S C

To: Thai Cookery Courses In Chiang Mai

Subject: Information about courses
Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing to ask for information about your Thai Cookery Courses. I am especially interested in an intensive course in August. I am 45 and I am unemployed at this moment. I cook quite well but I do not know Thai cookery and I want to learn it.
Could you please send me information about dates and prices of the course? I would also like some information about accommodation. I would like to stay with my husband. Would it be possible?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully
S C
