You are going to study at a college in an English-speaking country. You need information on accommodation for the duration of your course.
Write a letter to the accommodation office.
In your letter
1. tell them what course you will take and when you will arrive
2. ask about the details of the types of accommodation they can offer
3. explain to them what special needs you may have.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter to request some detailed information about the accommodation.
My name is Pirlo Wang, and I will be coming to your college to continue my Computer Engineering courses there. I will be arriving on August 15, just a week before classes start so that I have enough time to get everything prepared in the brand-new environment.
I am wondering what kinds of accommodation you can offer. Can I live with domestic students or are we just mixed up? Are the rooms divided into males and females?
If it is possible I would like to live with a British students so that I can get more opportunities to practise my oral English. Moreover, would you be kind enough to tell me more information about the foods in your refectory as it provides some Asian delicacy.
I look forward to your reply.
