Band 8 letter sample
I am writing to you regarding my upcoming trip to Europe. By the way, I am so excited to get this chance to see you after 3 years. It´s been so long, you know. Anyway, I would like to have some tips about getting a part-time job in London.
Firstly, let me explain my plans for this trip. I am supposed to arrive on March 16th. I will attend college for a whole semester. During my stay, I am going to study Business Administration at Oxford University. My classes are going to be held from 9am to 12:30 pm.
As you can see, after school I have plenty of free time. For this reason, I thought I could engage myself in the afternoon in a part-time job. From this idea, I might be able to save some money for a trip that I am organizing after I graduated from school.
Moreover, I would like to know if you could give me some advice about the business industry in London. Also could you suggest some online resources where I can search for part time jobs? Because of my lack of knowledge of those websites I am not able to have any further information about the job market there.
Thanks in advance for your time and support.
Hoping to hear from you soon
