Sample Answer:

Dear Sir,

Having seen your advertisement in the Daily Star on 3rd June, I would like to know the information about the course. I am William Jones, 22 years old and a university student. Recently, I have noticed that I have a problem with memorization that is crucial for my academic performance. I find it quite difficult to recall important information of my courses. On the top of that, I have to concentrate very hard even for very small piece of information to memorize. I have tried few techniques, but everything went in vain. That is why, I would like to know about what method you will use and, if possible, then please explain some significant aspects of your course. I also need the information of course fees and schedule of classes.

As I involve in volunteer service beside my academic activities, I do not have a great deal of free time, so I hope you can offer me a flexible hours for me.

It would be helpful if you could send me necessary information about the course. I am looking forward to hearing your reply.

Yours faithfully,
William Jones
