During my four years in the university, I have passed all the compulsory courses of study with high marks. Furthermore, I have chosen a wide range of optional courses such as literary, history and public speaking to widen my horizon and sharpen my mind.
My father, a professor of English in Nanjing University, has been teaching me English since I was a child. So I believe I will not have any language difficulties while learning in your country.

Write a letter complaining about the misbehavior of a particular employee in about 100 words. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using “Li Ming” instead.
I am writing to draw your attention to the most undesirable attitude and manner of a particular member of your staff. A week ago, I bought a shirt in the mens wear department of your supermarket, but when I went back home, it simply shrank after the firsttime wash. So I hurried back to your aftersale service for help.
When I told what had happened to the young man, Mr. Frank Moore, who was on duty at that time, and asked for refund or exchange, he was so rude on that occasion as to interrupt me continually. Later he even said my misuse caused the result and refused to listen to me any longer.
I strongly suggest that Mr. Moore be instructed on the proper manner towards customers. I hope you attach importance to this matter, and settle it as soon as possible.
Write a letter to complain about an unhappy experience in about 100 words to describe the matter and ask for the mistake to be corrected. Do not sign your own name at the end of your letter, using “Li Ming” instead.
I am writing to you about a most unhappy experience. Last Tuesday morning, we took a longroute bus of your company from Dukou to Lijiang. The bus was scheduled to arrive in Lijiang at 7 oclock in the evening, but it stopped midway at 4 p.m. for mechanical problems. The driver and the ticket seller could neither solve the problem by themselves nor seek help from others.
Where we stopped was nowhere near a village. Up until 8 oclock, another bus finally carried us to a shabby rural motel. We had to pay for our accommodation. The room was too small and the quilt was so dirty. To our surprise, when we just managed to sleep at around 2 a.m., the driver came to wake us up—the bus had been fixed!
I suggest that you look into this matter immediately and deal with it quickly and properly.
Looking forward to your reply.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information.

It has always been a great pleasure to write to you since I can never fail to get help, inspiration or enlightenment from you. Now I am writing to recommend to you Miss Liu Ming who wants to pursue her graduate study for the Masters Degree under your supervision.
Miss Liu Ming was one of my classmates in Tianjin University. She was one of the most excellent students in our university as can be seen from her straight A grades on all subjects. After graduation she worked in Tianyi Biological Company for three years, which considerably added to her practical experience.
It is my belief that with her intelligence, diligence and rich experience, Miss Liu Ming has great potential for further development in the field of pharmacology both theoretically and practically. Therefore, I recommend her to you with no reservations.

I have got my bachelors degree in architecture at Tongji University and passed both TOFEL and GRE. Do you have any further academic requirements? Moreover, I want to know about the tuition and fees. Is it possible for me to attain the scholarship for international students? Lastly, I prefer a single room if the price is not too high.

We will reach Songpan on the afternoon of July 30 at about 5 oclock. I hope it will not be too late when we arrive at your team.
I am looking forward to your early reply.

Your neighbors have recently written to you to complain about the noise from your house flat. Write a letter to your neighbors. In your letter
. explain the reasons for the noise
.describe what action you will take
You do not need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
I am writing to apologize for the noise from my flat. I did not realize that it had spoiled your evenings and made you nervous. If I had known that, I would have stopped it. So, I do hope you can accept my sincere apologies.
As you may guess, there is something wrong with the door in my living room. I try to fix it in the evenings everyday I get home from work. It is unfortunate that I am not good at fixing so it takes longer than I expected, which gave rise to so much noise. I regret to say that until now, the door is still out of work. But I have decided to call in a professional builder who, as I see it, will finish the rest work in no more than three days. I promise that he will only work during daytime, and you will not be disturbed in the evenings again.
Once again, I am sorry for any inconvenience caused by it.
A night club just opened near your home. You are very unhappy about the situation because it disturbs the peace of the neighborhood. Write a letter to your local government official. Say who you are and explain why you are unhappy and suggest what should be done about it
Begin your letter as follows:
I am writing to make a complaint about the head-scratching puzzlement I have been confronted with recently.
I am resident of St. Pancreas Street and I have been living here for at least 15 years. The tranquility here was appealing to me, but now, it is totally destroyed by a night club near my home. Every evening, the noise from that club drives me crazy and I cannot go to sleep. It is no overstatement to say that a sound sleep seems to be my golden memory. As a teacher, I cannot devote myself to my routine job just because of poor-quality sleep. Sounds ridiculous? It’s true. I am writing this letter to ask if it is possible for you to make some change. If you could ensure that the noise in that club would be in a minimum level at night, I would be most grateful.
Thank you for your consideration and I will be looking forward to your reply.

Subject：Ship Accident off West Coast of The Yangtze River，No Casualties.
Yesterday evening two boats collided in thick fog in The Yangtze River not far from Wu Han. One was a cargo ship carrying lumber，apparently on its way to The Yangtze River. The other was a National ferry on its regular run from Jiu Jiang to Wu Han.
However，because of the weather conditions，the captains did not realize the danger until a few seconds before the collision took place. Consequently，there was no time for them to prevent the accident.
Fortunately，there were no casualties among the crews or passengers，but both ships suffered badly damages.
A spokesman for the port authorities said that a committee would be set up to determine the cause of the collision.
Directions: You are now preparing for your graduation paper on the advantage and disadvantage of electronic mail; write a progress report to your tutor telling him what you have done last week.
To: Professor Barbara Felton
From: James Green
Date: April 12, 2005
Subject: First progress report on research paper
This is the first of the two progress reports you asked me to submit about my research paper on the advantages and disadvantages of electronic mail.
Last week, I gathered information from library materials and from an interview. Of the twelve references listed on my proposal, I found only nine, for others I will go to search in a larger library.
As far as interview concerned, I had an extended interview with Mr. Moore of General Dynamics, who gave me some brochures as well as a copy of a report on electronic mail he wrote for General Dynamics-materials I hope to use in my paper.
Starting tomorrow, I will begin organizing my paper. I will be able to submit a rough draft by the end of this month.
