Dear Sir or Madam:
I am writing this letter to express my interest in enrolling for the French speaking course in your language academy. I stay in the same housing society as you and I have heard lots of positive feedback about your teaching skills and command over French language from my neighbor.
I have wanted to learn French since my school days. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance until now. Now that my company is transferring me to its Paris office, it has become imperative for me to learn French. Furthermore, knowledge of the local language will give me an edge over other colleagues. Thus it will help me to fulfill my professional aspirations.
I would like to know a few details about the course like timing, duration and fees structure. I am a working individual, so I would prefer weekend classes.
I look forward to hearing from you.
