You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
You are staying in a country where the main language is English. You are looking for an opportunity to do volunteer work in a developing country.
Write a letter to the organization you want to work with and tell them:
- Why you are interested in working with them
- What skills and experience you have
- How long you are available to volunteer
Write at least 150 words.
I am writing to express my interest in the opportunity to work with your organization ‘EngTraining’ as a volunteer. I learned of your need for an English language tutor to work as a volunteer in Asia from your organization’s website.
I am very interested in the position. The plethora of information on your organization’s online webpages regarding the volunteering activities has got me extremely motivated and enthusiastic to join your team. I would very much want to play a part in tutoring the underprivileged children in South Asia.
My skills and experience are well suited to the position. I have a postgraduate degree and have worked as a teaching assistant for three years during my university studies. My responsibilities were to grade papers and projects. Also, I had to tutor students who needed help.
I am available during the summer from June 1st to August 31st. However, I am flexible with my dates should there be a need to do so. I can be reached at 911-1-1111111 or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, please do let me know if you need any additional information.
I look forward to hearing from you.
