You live in a room in college which you share with another student. You find it very difficult to work there because your roommate always has friends visiting. He/She has parties in the room and sometimes borrows your things without asking you.

Write a letter to the Accommodation Officer at the college and:

1) ask for a new room next term,

2) you would prefer a single room,

3) explain your reasons.

Don’t sign your own name at the end of your letter, using“Li Ming”instead.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to express/air dissatisfaction/disappointment/concern regarding accommodation. I would prefer to move into a single room next semester, as I find the present sharing arrangement inconvenient.

I must explain that the reason for my dissatisfaction is my roommate’s inconsiderate behavior. For one thing, his friends are constantly visiting him; for another, he regularly holds noisy parties. To solve this difficulty/surmount this difficulty/improve this situation/crack this hard nut, I hope to draw the attention of the authorities concerned. I am sure you will agree that the only solution for me is to move into a room of my own. Therefore, I would be grateful if you could find a single room for me, preferably not in the same building but as near to the college campus as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Li Ming

You have a friend who is about to enter university, and he wants you to advise him on which subject to specialize in—history, in which he is very interested, or computer science, which offers better job prospects.

1) Give your suggestions.

2) Explain the reasons.

3) Other recommendation.

Dear Wangcai,

You have asked me for my advice concerning/regarding whether you should study history or computer science at university, and I will try to make some useful/practical/conducive suggestions/proposals/recommendations.

You must keep in mind that, above all, your university training is a preparation for your future career. There is no doubt that the field of computer science offers far wider job opportunities than history. Besides, for the foreseeable future, not only will it be necessary for everyone to be computer-literate, it will also be necessary to be equipped with computer skills merely to earn a living.

Of course, I would recommend that you keep up your reading of history in your spare time.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Professor Shakespeare,

I am writing to formally request to withdraw from two courses: Introduction to Elementary Education and Teaching Methods.

I would also like to request a tuition refund. I am sorry for any inconveniences I have caused by this change in plans. This decision was not taken lightly, and I do appreciate the kind consideration you have shown to me. Thank you for your attention to these requests. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 82036600. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear Ma Bin,

I would like to apologize for my not being able to return in person the book you lent me last Wednesday. You know, I have done a parttime job as a private teacher. Originally the lessons were scheduled on Saturday. But it happens that my student is going to take part in a football match this Saturday, the day after tomorrow and so the lesson is shifted to tomorrow evening, which renders me to meet you then.

But don’t worry. I have asked a classmate to return that book for me. She is a pretty girl with short curly hair, and will go to your dormitory at 7:00 tomorrow evening.

Thank you again for your book. It is really helpful to my English assignment.
