What do you want to express?

OK, I see. That's commonly called a motivation letter.

Try to write something, and we'll help you with it.

I dont know its name but our professor said its name was letter of expression.

I searched on net but I didnt find anything.

I wrote something but Im not sure about that. I guess, I have grammar mistakes.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I study at ........ University and I have my Junior Degree in chemical engineering department. I am going to graduate in July of 2011. I am always interested in chemistry. When I was in high school, we made a lot of experiments individual or with a partner. I have liked this lesson because of making experiments. I was succesful in chemistry. Because of these, I decided to study in chemical engineering when I was in high school. Therefore, I am a sudent of chemical engineering department. After my laboratory internship in summer of 2009, I plan to be in charge of quality control laboratory.

I would like to study in biochemical engineering department at The University of ...... as a Master of Science student after my graduation. Studying in U.S.A. will give me higher skills which will be useful form y future career. Also there are lots of faculties, whose research interests are some as my future plans. In addition, my education in U.S.A. will give met he chance to be competitive between the chemical engineers in Turkey. Besides, lots of people all around the world live in U.S.A. therefore, I will have a chance to broaden my vision by meeting people from different cultures.

Here are a few suggestions.

Structure it like an esaay.

Paragraph 1


say what degree you are applying for

Paragraph 2

Say why you want to do that degree in that field

Paragraph 3

Say why you want to study at that university, instead of others in the USA.

Paragraph 4


Restate briefly why they should accept you

So, post again!'

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
thank you for your suggestins

I have to write all of these in just one paragraph. Isn't my writing enough or what do you think about that?

It's up to you, but most letters of this kind have more than one paragraph. You yourself wrote two.

Your first paragraph begins by focusing on your past history, instead of on your present and future.

In your second, you don't tell me why you want to go to this university rather than any of the other hundreds of universities in the US.

Thanks a lot!

I gonna try to write again
