Write a letter to Mrs Barrett. In your letter:

  • suggest how you could help her in her home
  • say why you would like to do this work
  • explain when you will and will not be available

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Dear Mrs Barrett,

Answer – 

Dear Mrs Barrett,

I am writing this letter concerning the advertisement that you are looking for domestic help for some hours a day in the coming summer.

I could help you by doing various domestic chores, such as cleaning, dusting, mopping and washing up the cutlery and other utensils. Moreover, as I am adept in cooking, I can cook various types of healthy dishes for you, whether vegetarian or non-vegetarian. I am also well-versed in Chinese, Indian, Italian and Continental cuisines.

I am extremely interested in doing this part-time job because I am a student, and it will not only help me to earn some money to aid my education but also help me to spend my leisure time more productively. Moreover, it would be a great opportunity for me to further improve my English by conversing with you everyday and to get to know how natives talk. / As l belong to a middle-class family, so my parents are not financially strong enough to bear the entire cost of my education. Therefore, I want to do my part and chip in with whatever I can so that I do not put the whole burden on them.

As far as my availability goes, I will be at your service from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the weekdays and from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the weekends. This is because I have summer holidays, so I’ll be free in the mornings, but in the evenings, I will not be able to serve you because I have to attend my maths tuition classes because I am weak in this subject.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
Brock Lesnar
