Letter of recommendation

Write a letter to a friend of yours to

1) recommend one of your favorite movies and

2) give reasons for your recommendation

Dear friend,

I am writing to recommend you a wonderful movie, the Pursuit of happiness, which is amazing and very impressive.

Unlike many western movies, this one was adapted from a real life situation. The movie tells us that perseverance / persistence / is what makes one’s life successful and prosperous. The plot of the movie is simple yet profound. The main character was a man from a low-class family who supported their lives by selling machines to doctors.

His tremendous efforts and industriousness, even after falling in his selling jobs, enabled him to win over the heads in a very successful investment company. In addition, the beautiful language in this original English movie may contribute to your study of English in listening and speaking.

Not to mention the inspiration you get from it.

Therefore, I have no reservation in giving the movie highest recommendation.

Sincerely yours,

Li Ming

Letter of complaint

You bought a pair of running shoes from a department store. But the quality is not what you have expected.

Dear Sir or Ma’am,

I am writing to complain about the running shoes I purchased from your department store last week. I was deeply attached to the quality and fashion. Therefore, I bought them without hesitation.

Unfortunately, the very first time I wore them to running, the sole was detached. I am compelled to express my shock and disappointment at finding the shoes are of inferior quality. I am returning the shoes to you. Please arrange for them to be replaced for a new one with better quality this time. And send them as soon as possible.

I am looking forward to your reply and will wait sometime before seeking help from the consumer protection association.

Sincerely yours,

Li Ming

To whom it may concern,

I have long witnessed the Project Hope helping children who are in need. As a citizen of this country, I would like to contribute to the program by offering my financial assistance to a child in a remote area.

It would be most preferable if the beneficiary is a primary school girl living in the southern parts of our country. The girl should come from a poor family with the age of 8 to 10, and her previous scores should prove her potential to be an outstanding student in the future.

I would like to give the girl my financial support annually until she graduates from college. I would appreciate it if you could find me such a girl.

I look forward to you replay.

Sincerely yours,

Li Ming
