I got your letter yesterday and I am writing to ask for more information. I am not a member of your organization, but I would be interested in finding out how to join your organization and become a member of the exchange programme.
You know that I am a good language learner. I am interested in the culture of English speaking countries. At school we have done some projects about customs and traditions in Canada and Australia. And my project was at the top of the class.
I would be grateful if you could let me know how I can become a member and what kind of exams are involved.
Hope to hear from you soon,

The reason I'm writing now is because I've got some amazing news. I'm coming back home for a holiday in summer. I'll be there for a month, so I hope we've got plenty of free time.
I hope you'll recognize me. After all these years, I think I've really become English. The only language I've spoken since I came here is English. I've got a North London accent.
Anyway, that's enough about me. There is so much I want to know. How are you and how have you changed? What's happened to our old friends from school?
Do write soon to let me know what your plans are forthe summer.
Lots of love,

Dear Sir or Madam,
I saw your advertisement forthe International Youth Conference Debate on global warming in Youth magazine and I am writing for more information. I am a member of the Debating Club and we are all keen to take part in the event but require further details.
First of all, is there any age limit? We would also like to know the exact dates of the Convention. We are going to be taking exams till the end of June and so we will only be free from July onwards.
We would like to bring a total of seven people; will this be acceptable? Do we have to be accompanied by a teacher? Also, there were no details about accommodation in your advertisement and it would be useful for us to know what the options are and whether bookings are made by you or by the participants themselves.
Finally, could you please send us an information pack, including application forms and any other useful information about the Conference.
I look forward to receiving your answer.
