Dear Sir or Madam


Dear Madam Irina M.Orlova!

My name has quite known for you; I was your student in the High School. I am writing to you from Auckland University in New Zealand. Expected a good result from IELTS score I became very nervous as long as I have regular problem with memorization of complex sentence structures in the Academic Writing Tasks. To avoid from this challenge and keep a belief in myself I want to elect to your 10 weeks Memory Course by Mentax E-learning Technology between our universities via Internet.

Although I knew lots of books are describing what the main issue in memorization and how to remember in general aspects I would like to know deeper in due to many risks of misunderstanding of basic knowledges. So I am glad to get an answer what the methods you will use, explaining significant elements at Memory Course from you, because I read much information, occured in books I have known for many years.

Beginning to your course I narrowly forget about fee of lections and want to ask it so long as the course starts. What days do I need to connect with you by learning platform?

I will want your answer.

Evgeniya I.Ivanova,
Student of Auckland University.


Can you check my letter? As I understand it relates to semi-formal letter-request.

And, of course, I want to know my errors and what I have to fix and study.
