Hi Francisca,
Did you have problems logging on?

Dear Mr. Robert Landy,

I'm a Chilean Psychologist interested in doing a Dramatherapy Postgraduate training program. I read about the program on your website and it seems very interesting. I want to start the Drama Therapy program in September 2004. I would like to ask if you know if there is any financial aid for foreign students in drama therapy studies, either at New York University or in another institution? I would appreciate it if you could e-mail the information to me as it is a faster form of communication.

Hoping to hear from your soon,
Yours Sincerely,

Francisca Solar

Fran, sometimes it's not too good to ask for someone's e-mail directly if you don't know the person.
Is it a web page or website?
Anyone else have other suggestions about this?
Ww, it's quite common these days so I wouldn't imagine it to be considered rude (unless the person is in a v.senior position and/or busy etc.)
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Ww, shouldn't it be Dear Mr Landy instead of Dear Mr Robert Landy??
Because you either use:

1. Dear Robert,
2. Dear Mr Robert Landy,

Another example:

1. Dear + first name: Dear Frank,
2. Dear + (Full name) Dear Mr Frank

Ohh I need your surname Frank to complete the sentence. Could you do that for me?
Thanks, I totally overlooked that part. I was in too much of a hurry.
It's Dear Mr. Landy.

Ww, it's quite common these days so I wouldn't imagine it to be considered rude (unless the person is in a v.senior position and/or busy etc.)
That's good to know.
That was why I mentioned that it wasn't too good to ask for his e-mail. I thought he could be in a senior position.
