You Are Going to Another Country to Study. You Would Like

  • Give details of your study plans.
  • Explain why you want to get a part-time job.
  • Suggest how your friend could help you find a job.

Dear Vijay,

My departure date for Canada is drawing near, and I am busy with preparations. I have enrolled at an institution called ‘IDT English’ in Ottawa, for a four-month intermediate course, full-time. It is quite expensive but I am hopeful of improving my pronunciation, especially.

To assist in covering the costs of my studies, I aim to find a part-time job. Not only are the college fees rather high but also I know that rental accommodation in the capital city will not be cheap, to say anything of food and heating expenses! So I would very much like to arrange some temporary employment before I arrive.

I was wondering if you could ask around among your friends and colleagues to see if anyone wants a house cleaner, gardener, or nanny for their children. I know you have a wide social network in Ottawa that you could canvas for me if you wouldn’t mind. I’d be so grateful.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Best wishes,
