Dear Customer Service Representative,
I am writing to comp[ain about the bad delivery service of your company.
The IBM Desktop computer we ordered from your store two weeks ago finally arrived yesterday. There were not any signs of damage to the packing case at all, but when we opened it, we found, much to our surprise, that the back cover had been cracked and the screen had been scratched.
In view of this, I have decided to make a formal complaint against your delivery service. I sincerely hope that you will replace this computer as soon as possible. If this is not possible, I will have no alternative but to insist on a full refund.
I would appreciate anything you can do to help us in this matter.
Dear Mr Qiu，

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Bull,
I saw your advertisement on the Internet and am very interested in working on your farm.
I‘m a student and need more practice with my English. I was hoping to come to Great Britain but didn‘t want to ask my parents for money. Working for you would be an ideal solution.
I‘m 18 years old and very fit. Although I‘ve never worked on a farm before I have helped on a building site and am used to working hard. I‘m very fond of animals and would be happy to help with the cows and sheep if needed.
Could you please let me know how long you would want me for, how many hours a day, and what the minimum wages per hour would be I would like to know if there will be other students there too and where I will be sleeping.
I enclose a photo as requested. My last employer will be happy to write me a reference, if you so wish.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
I＇m writing to tell you about the discussion on whether an entrance fee should be charged for parks. Opinions vary from person to person on this issue.
50% of the students disagree with the idea of entrance fees. In their opinion, parks are public places where all the people can have a rest and enjoy themselves. So if an entrance fee is charged, some people will surely be kept away from the park. Besides, in order to charge entrance fees,gates and walls must be built. They think that it will do harm to the appearance of a city.
40% of the students agree with the idea of entrance fees, because the gardeners need to be paid and new plants and flowers need to be bought.But fees should be charged reasonably.
A letter of thanks
I’m now writing these few lines to appreciate your hospitality during my traveling in Yunnan. Undoubtedly, my travel can’t have been so interesting and unforgettable without you. In the addition, it was your considerate care that made me like being at home. During those days in Yunnan, I do hope to have the opportunity of reciprocating. I will feel very honored and pleased if you come to travel through my city. How nice if would be to see you again. Would you kindly let me know when you are convenient? I repeat my thanks again for what you’ve done for me. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon. Please give my kind regards to your family members.
Directions: Write a letter of complaint according to the following situation: You bought an air conditioner in Sun Appliance and had it installed the other day, but you found that the fan made too much noise when the machine operated. You demand the store to send a representative to check it up.
You should write at least 150 words. Do not sign your own name at the end of the letter; use Li Ming instead. You do not need to write the address.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I m writing to lodge the complaint about the poor quality of an air conditioner that I purchased from Sun Appliance Company.
Frankly speaking, Sun Appliance has always been my favorite. On April 4, , I bought the air conditioner (serial number 12345) from one of your chain store located in Lang Fang. The machine operated well at first, but ten days later, there was a fault that bothered me, that is, the fan made so much noise that I could not sleep well at night. Worse still, the cooling system didn t work well and the machine began to leak recently. Its poor quality ruined almost all my previous impression toward your products.
I strongly suggest that a repairman or a service engineer should be sent to my home without delay. I wonder if you could pinpoint the exact cause of the malfunction as soon as possible. If you can t, I am afraid that I will request for full amount of refund or a new air conditioner.

I’d like to apply for the post of assistant which was advertised in the newspaper. I found this position quite appealing to me.
I’ve just graduated from high school. Luckily I am good at English and I can speak English fluently. In addition, I have previous experience. During my stay in middle school, I used to be a volunteer and looked after the old people in a nursing home on weekends.
In short, I believe my experience and fluent oral English will be a great help for me in doing the work. I’m available for interview at any time. It would be appreciated if I can get your offer.
