Dear Sir Mr. Berney,

I am Maria, one of your student in a French Language evening course students at French Friendly Academy. I am writing this letter to inform you that next Friday 15th March will be my last class. This seems too harsh. Do you really want to set this tone?

Though I love attending your classes, unfortunately, I may have to discontinue the course.

I am working as Secretary for in a big factory name the company/factory here in Formosa, and now my department’s chief is offering me a promotion. Do you really want to leave the course for a promotion? That sounds too selfish. Isn’t it? Let us set a more amiable tone. greater responsibilities that will demand my presence in the evening as well.

I am enthusiastic with this preferment but the position available is in Buenos Aires and for that reason, I am going to move there next April and I do not able to attending the course anymore.

Moreover, I’ll soon be transfered to undertake similar responsibilities in Buenos Aires. Consequently it will be nearly impossible for me to attend classes from 15th of March.

However, I would like to continue learning French and I was thinking of an online course. I do not know if you have any online class or maybe you can recommend me a good website or teacher.

I am Looking forward to hearing from you,

Yours sincerely.

  1. Dear Sir,

    What is the difference between these two sentences – “describe the situation” and “explain why you cannot continue at this time”?

    Are these two sentences not the same??

    • Good question Jatin. “Describe the situation” refers to expressing the circumstances – the course you’re attending and your current job. “Explain why you cannot continue” demands expressing the conflict between the course and the job.

      They sound similar indeed.
