Dear Sir or Madam,

Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Rona Lyn Olivar, an ICU Nurse at the Urdaneta City Sacred Heart Hospital, located in the province of Pangasinan in the Philippines. I have learned from a colleague that you will conduct an Electrocardiogram Training in Singapore. I am writing to ask for some specific information regarding the seminar schedule, program details, accommodation arrangement and the cost.

Firstly, with regards to dates and time, what will be the seminar schedule and what time would it begin and end each day? Secondly, please notify me of the topics and speakers of the program. I am wondering if there is any special consideration for the registered nurses who will be attending the seminar? And finally, I would also like to know about the accommodation and the cost. Would the accommodation be arranged by you or should an individual be responsible for that? What would be the approximate cost to attend and successfully finish the seminar?

I am very much interested in attending the seminar and your reply would help me plan for it in advance. So, I am looking forward to hearing from you soon regarding my concerns.

Yours faithfully,

Rona Olivar

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Swathi Reddy, currently working as a software engineer in India. I have learned about your seminar on Ethical Hacking, scheduled to be held in Sydney, Australia in December 2018, through an advertisement in a newspaper. I am planning to attend this workshop and need some further details.

The seminar schedule was not mentioned in the advert. Hence, I would like to know the duration and schedule of the workshop. I would be glad if you can also give me a brief of the program: which aspects of Ethical Hacking will be covered as part of the workshop and if there will be any hands-on or will it be just a theoretical session. Please inform me how much it would cost to book my seat. Lastly, as I will be travelling from India, I would like to know about the accommodation arrangement. Is there any living place provided by you? If not, could you please let me know of the hotels nearby along with the probable cost per night including meals?

Thank you in advance for your reply. I am looking forward to attending the seminar.

Yours faithfully,

Swathi Reddy

Model Answer 3:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to request some information regarding the conference that your organisation is going to conduct next month in Perth Australia, as advertised in the Daily Heralds. I am hoping that you would provide me with these details as soon as possible so that I can book my seat for the workshop.

First off, I would like to know the exact schedule of the symposium to sanction the leaves from my work. Is there any prerequisite to attend the conclave? If so, what are they?

Secondly, the venue details with a navigational map would be highly appreciated as I will be travelling to Perth for the first time. Are the participants expected to bring their personal laptop and other stationery?

Finally, who would be responsible for the accommodation – the participants themselves or your organisation? Can I book a hotel of my own? What will be the total cost for a participant from the UK and if there is an early bird discount provided that booking is done well in advance?

I am hoping to receive your reply before next Friday. Your help and time will be greatly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Dev Odedra
