Hello everyone! My English is quite rusty and I don't dare to send off this "official" letter, which I had to write... I hope someone here can help me out. Thank you a lot in advance.

To whom it may concern

My name is [....], I am a student at [.....] where I am enrolled in a new Bachelor course of studies called “Oriental and Asian Science” for two semesters already. I planned to spend one year abroad (from 2006 to 2007, i.e. the 5^th and 6^th semester) to improve my Chinese speaking skills which is why I am currently applying for a scholarship to go to Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

However, the [...] Academic Exchange Service, which is responsible for allotting the scholarships, asks all it's applicants to prepare a schedule which fits the requirements of the respective study course the applicant is enrolled in and therefore mingle with the universities' course guidance.

In my case those requirements (for the 5^th and 6^th semester) cover deepening Chinese language courses and a course or courses about “politics of China, Tibet and Mongolia”. While I found out that it's no problem to find appropriate Chinese language courses I am not so sure if this counts for the latter ones as well. I would like to know if your school offers any study program that remotely covers these so that when I come back to Germany I can immediately go on studying without losing any semesters.

I hope you can help me with that. Thanks for your reply in advance.

Yours sincerely,
[....]

Did I make so many mistakes? hehe.

Don't mean to annoy you! :-)

But I would like to send it off as quickly as possible, because I don't know how long will it take until I get the replies (if any). And there is still a lot of paperwork to do :-)
> Don't mean to annoy you! :-)
No, no. My laptop crashed. Here is your letter. I took out some wordy parts and fixed some awkward vocabulary choices.

Thank you for any information that you may provide.
