Dear sir,  
I saw the advertisement for a new English course  at  your  institution  in  the  Ha  Noi Moi  Newspaper.  I’m  interested  in  taking this  course  and  would  be  grateful  if  you give   me   some   information   about   the course.

I started to learn English 4 years ago. My speaking is pretty good. However, I can’t
write  very  well  .  English  grammar  is difficult for me. So I want to improve my grammar and writing skill as well.
Could  you  please  provide  me  with  more information about the length of the course and fees for beginners? If it’s necessary I can supply my record of English study.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
Bao Hung
