You need to change the him/her stuff to whichever is relevant for your situation. Also, we use £ in the UK not $.
Thank You,

Yes, of course I will change the him/her I didn't know if I had to change those or not, and yes the $ signs, my partner would have to change those due the fact we don’t have the pound on our keyboard

I am curious to the overall layout and functionality of the letter, I have been this looking on this forum and found some writing a letter of invitation as well as a letter sponsorship, so I need to know if what I have is functional for both, or perhaps I also need to add a counter part letter

I would also like to know, my sponsor isn’t to thrilled about writing down her personal finances in this letter, but instead just leaving a number to be contacted at if the custom officer wants to know how much money she has, he would have to call her,.....is that a no, I think it would be but I don’t want to push that due to the fact I don’t want anybody thinking I’m trying to be nosy in there finances

Thanks again Nona, any input would be great !!!!!

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
being duly sworn, depose and say: - this part is not appropriate for a letter you are writing yourself. This would be if you were making a sworn statement in front of a lawyer or something.

Can't she write the letter? This is more of a 'form' than a letter, perhaps it would sound more natural if she wrote it and just made sure she included the relevant information.
I just thought that part made it sound more official, here in America would go to a person called a notary, Which you take it or any document to them, and for about 3 $ they put a state seal on it which is equivalent to going to a lawyer, we do this for the purpose of for example if we going to testify in a court or making it a official document, Which I see your point about that part being a bit over done, I just wanted to make it sound good

I’m writing all the letters and then she will print them out and fill them out cause they all have to be signed by here, and she’s not the best writer

So what I have gathered already, your saying its to much like a form? And its ok for it to sound natural?

Let me rewrite it really fast and I’ll post it here in a few to see if it looks better, like I said I just want it to look good,….oh yes, before I forget nona. Would you see it as bad to only leave a contact number to be contacted at to find out finance information? My sponcer really don’t want to send bank statements or give out how much money she has? through the mail. So if you might know something about that, that would be great, but Thank You Loads for the input, I think I see how I’m going to format it now, I’ll try and rewrite it.

Thanks again mate

I don't know about how they want the financial information, sorry. Can you find any guidance on the UK embassy website?
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies

well, I had this done the other day but to lazy to get it posted, this is the revised verson, I hope it sounds better, The tabs will more likely get thrown off as a resalt of C&P but what can ya do lol
