IELTS Formal Letter
Asking for information
As part of a student survey project you have been given, you are organizing a group to visit a HISTORICAL EXHIBITION in a small town. Write a letter to the manager of the exhibition. In your letter,
- ASK for information regarding such things such as the CONTENTS OF THE EXHIBITION,
- THE DATES AND TIME OF ITS OPENING AND CLOSING,
- and ask IF THERE ARE ANY DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in connection with the historical exposition which is going to be in Reutov city next month.
As a representative of a student’s survey project in Moscow State Historical University, I would like to organize a small group of students to visit your display. Having received this task from our tutor, I realized that the historical exhibition in your small town would be the best choice due to the fact that there is a short distance to your town.
I wonder if I might ask you to provide some details about both exhibits and objects of history which are going to be shown at that event. The prime object of this semester is to explore the “Ivan the terrible” period, so it would be great to see some artifacts of that time in your exhibition.
I would much appreciate it much if you could provide details about the working dates and hours of this event as well as the availability of discount tickets for student groups. I hope that this information will give us much more flexibility in excursion preparation.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
