Dear Users, May I ask for your help? Could you look at the following email and identify the errors? I've highlighted the areas I'm particularly uncertain about. Hi Bob, In a nutshell: Unfortunately, Anna is the weakest student in that group. Unlike Linda, Sue, Tom (or even Pam) she hasn't really made that much of a progress . While grammar is clearly her Achilles's heel, she also often falls back to her L1 and struggles with pronunciation. Having said that, it's not that she hasn't made any progress whatsoever, but compared to the above-mentioned students, hers is simply less obvious. I think Anna's goals are different from Linda's, for instance. Linda's objective is to polish her language skills, which are already at a higher level, whereas Anna's goal is to simply get the message across in whatever way possible. Thus, she often sacrifices correctness and pronunciation for the sake of simply putting the language items together . Moreover, she's the only one who sort of struggles with following the instructions in class. I usually have to approach her and explain what I'm expecting of her. She also mentioned to me that 2 hours a week is simply not enough for her, and I tend to agree with that opinion. On the bright side, she's definitely quite committed to improving her language skills and I have to give her a lot of credit for making efforts. As I said, those efforts are more focused on getting the message across, rather than using "proper" Polish, but it's the effort that matters. Hope this helps and is explicit enough. If you need more information, just drop me a line. Best,...

Hello everyone! I'm going to apply to a European University so I've been doing my Motivation Letter. I've found this website extremely useful and benefited with all the information available about How to write a Motivation Letter, so THANK YOU. However, my case is especial since the university I want to apply put a limit of 400 WORDS in your Motivation Letter, so I've found it challenging. It took me a month to finish my letter but now I would really appreciate if you can revise, correct, or critic it! Every suggestion is welcome. University of Blahblah June 30, 2016 Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing to apply to your Master's degree program in "Biomedical Sciences" with specialization in "Infection and Immunity", starting in October 2017. My career ambition is to become a doctor in Life Sciences oriented to solve Public Health issues. As I have always had an enquiring mind about nature, I chose a Natural Science orientation in high school and I assisted to "Science Expedition", a scientific camp in South Argentina, at my 16 years old. After school I continued my academic career at the National University of Quilmes and graduated with a Bachelor of Biotechnology degree, being part of the top 10% of students from my graduating class. Amazed by all I had learned about molecular biology, I decided to do my thesis in the field of health, performing research in the Laboratory of Immunology and Virology, where I genetically modified a probiotic bacterium to its study as a vaccine. During my thesis I sharpened my critical thinking and realised the potential of biotechnology to fight infectious diseases. My passion for biomedicine and my enthusiasm for improving people's health led me to start working at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, dependant on the Ministry of Health of my country, soon before my graduation. This work has been invigorating and challenging, since I took part in the development of a molecular diagnosis essay for Ebola virus during the emergency in 2014, and assisted in Dengue virus diagnosis during the 2016 outbreak in Argentina. Furthermore, this experience made me aware of the high number of people that die from preventable diseases and therefore strengthened my social commitment. I want to express my wish to be nominated to the Amsterdam Merit Scholarship, since I cannot afford the costs of tuition and living. Besides, considering the full-time mode of the Master's programme I will not be able to work while studying and give all my best. I am tremendously determined to make the most out of the scholarship benefits. Finally, I have chosen the UvA not only for its strong international reputation, but also because it reflects the multicultural character of The Netherlands. Moreover, with many distinguished scientists as professors and cooperation with top biomedical centres, I know the UvA provides exceptional education and research possibilities. This opportunity represents the next outstanding challenge in my life. Thank you for considering my application, and I look forward to your acceptance. Sincerely yours, ABCD

Hi, I have a quick question - is the should=if construction correct in this sentence: "I have still 2 years to complete my studies, my situation can change completely, so I don't feel confident enough to say should I'll be able to relocate permanently.". What are the main principles of using "should" instead of "if" in formal language?

Hi Everyone, I hope you could assist me on this. I am not sure if I'm into correct grammar. Kindly check below letter. Thank you for considering my request to rearrange my reporting schedule to attend weekend review classes.

My uncle passed away two weeks ago. Then his wife asked me to thank note to his acquaintance in the United States in English because he sent her the funeral offerings after her husband's death. So, I wrote a thank note in English for her. Could you check it if it is ok or not. Let me add this. the acquaintance (male) wants to visit and stay several nights to visit my uncle's grave. However, my aunt want to refuse it because she, herself is not in good health, She can't afford to offer hospitality to him. So, she wants to decline his offer. (without hurting his feeling). Would you take that into your considertation before you will read the following letter ? Thank you. Thank you very much for your gift after my husband’s passing. My family and I greatly appreciate your thoughts. Our house will be under downsizing construction soon. It will take several months. I will have a lot on my plate until that construction completes. So, I am afraid that I will not be able to offer my hospitality to you if you will visit us in July. Your consideration is enough for us. My husband is now in heaven and I believe he is also grateful for your thoughts. Once again I would like to express my deepest appreciation for your thoughtfulness. With all my best wishes for your good health and prosperity.

Dear All, Could you tell me if the following email has any errors? It is very rare that airlines issue invoices here in China, especially if tickets are booked via third party websites such as Ctrip. Given the fact that most of us do not speak (or more importantly - read) Chinese, it is extremely difficult to get any kind of invoice, let alone an invoice with the company's name. Thank you....

I apologize for the double post but here is the final product. I am writing a letter to apologize to my principal for arriving at school intoxicated, but oblivious. I need a grammer EXPERT to point out any wrongs in this letter please, I also want the letter to sound truley apologetic and not sarcastic,aggressive, or defensive. Dear Mr. Gray, This is a letter from xxxxxx, I am a student who attends the Behavioral Intervention Center that you manage. I am writing to address a recent incident I was involved in, and apologize for it. I assume you have been informed of the situation that has occurred Friday Nov. 20, when I arrived on the premises allegedly intoxicated. I had not taken anything that morning before I arrived, however; the night before I had taken two, .5mg Clonazepam. I was not aware that the effects would the length that they did. I had assumed that the effects have dissipated by that morning. Albeit I was oblivious to them, they had not at the time. I promise with highest regards to you that it certainly was not an intentional violation. With this letter I am expressing my deepest regrets and apologies for arriving on campus under the influence, and I request with consummate respect for your authority to please take my behavior at BIC to date into consideration. Also please consider the fact that I have been in transitional school since the beginning of October. This has created some very stressful emotions for me that I have been working hard on controlling. During all of my time at both BTC in Granbury and BIC here in Mansfield I have worked really hard to leave the Center, and just get back to regular classes. I respect your authority and know there must be consequences, I am just asking if there is any type of consequence that would not involve extending my time in BIC that it be considered. I'll stay after and help clean the building, remain in level 0 for the rest of the sentence, or do extra school work if you like. I just want to get back to school. With any decision that you make in response to the incident, positive or not, I assure you this type of thing will never happen again. Sincerely, xxxxxxxxxxx

Hello, could you advice on the following extract from a cover letter. I am struggling with the introductory phrase proceeding the bullet list and with the first bullet in the list. Could I use a full sentence in the first bullet only? I know that it is much more advisable to make all pullets parallel to one another, but I find it a bit strange putting a colon after "I" in the introductory phrase(see version 2). Version 1: "As an analyst in the XXXXXX Team at XXXX (name of company):  I worked with complex grading and reporting systems, manipulating, and interpreting complex data sets  Analysed and responded to deviations in the...  Initiated resolving intrasystem data quality issues, improving ....  Modelled proposed changes to methodology, evaluating the impact of those changes on ....  Analysed risk models’ data inputs and sources, helping improve the performance of ...." Version 2: "As an analyst in the XXXXXX Team at XXXX (name of company), I:  Worked with complex grading and reporting systems, manipulating, and interpreting complex data sets  Analysed and responded to deviations in the...  Initiated resolving intrasystem data quality issues, improving ....  Modelled proposed changes to methodology, evaluating the impact of those changes on ....  Analysed risk models’ data inputs and sources, helping improve the performance of ...."

Hey guys thanks in advance! pls check the grammar and the overall appropriateness? what do u think is it a good cover letter or needs tuning? Dear Sir / Madam, I would like to apply for ... My motivation for applying this programme is because of the unmatched value X places upon it’s people and the excellent self development opportunities X provides. I was immediately convinced, when I read the X careers web page that starting a career at X is the chance of a lifetime to fulfill my objective of developing myself as a prospective business leader. I have studied Economics at X University in X. The university itself is the best internationally renowned university in X Only those students in the top five hundred where there are one million and a half applicants taking the university entrance exams are admitted to the university. Admission to such a university where students are highly competent equipped me with a constant awareness to be disciplined and an enthusiasm for change in order to ( necessary?) be ahead of others. In terms of interpersonal communication, I am responsive to my colleagues and am eager to help whenever possible. I am good at team work, able to consider and analyse different opinions, and take the lead when necessary. I am good at persuading others by creating relationships based on mutual trust and understanding. I had an internship with Banca X. There I had the chance to serve as a marketing analyst for one and a half month during my 3 months internship period which was decisive in choosing my career path. Besides work experience I participated in a great range of social activities and held roles as supervisor, executive board member and president. During those activities I sometimes lead teams and sometimes was part of a team. Taking part in extra-curricular activities provided me with invaluable organizational, public communication and leadership skills. I know X seeks only the brightest and most creative applicants for the graduate development programme. I also know that I have the ability it takes to perform the job effectively, and that I am excited about the idea of working for a dynamic, internationally recognised IT company, You can find my qualifications and skills in the enclosed resume. If you would like to have more information about my qualifications and skills, please contact me by e-mail or phone. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely,
