Requirement Of Accomodation

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are going on a short training course at Merybound college in Greenmount, Northern Ireland. You need somewhere to live while you are there.
Write a letter to the accommodation officer at the college for requirement of accomodation. In your letter:
-explain your situation.
-describe the accommodation you require.
-say when you will need it.

Write at least 150 words.


Dear Madam,

I am writing this letter to bring to your notice the requirement of accommodation during the training course at Merybound college. The training will begin in January 2016, under the guidance of Mr. Rathore.

Two months ago, I applied for a course on Biometrics in the college of Merybound, Germany and was one of the students who got selected for the six months’ training. Two weeks later, a mail was sent describing the formalities of joining the course. While applying I thought, accommodation will be provided for first few days after which we need to make arrangements. However, the information has just reached me that we are responsible for ourselves right from the very first day.

Although, arrangements have been made by me for 7 days after the joining date, I would be in trouble for the first few days. If you could provide accommodation for the first six days in Germany, it will be great help from your side.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.


Yours faithfully,
