How can I write a letter about my own background?

The main is to answer a letter that it handles about your own background. In the letter you will present the culture that you come from. The letter shall be formal.

Can I get some example of letter? I don't know how I can start.

I will try to give you a few tips, although I know nothing at all about your background.

The layout of the letter should look like this:

Your name

Address

Phone number

E-mail address

 

The date goes here

 

Address of person you're writing to

with full title, zip code, department name, etc.

Or else: To whom it may concern

 

Dear Mr. or Ms. Whoosit:

Single space paragraphs with double spaces between paragraphs.

Use block form throughout.

 

 

 

Respectfully,

Your written signature

Type your name and sign above typed name

 

The best approach to the letter is probably the past-present-future structure. Start with some information about where you were born, what education you have received, and anything else that seems pertinent. Then tell something about what you are doing at the present time. Finally, tell about your plans for the future and how you expect to achieve your goals. It is important to give the impression that you have definite goals and are working towards them. Past, present, and future will give you three meaty paragraphs. Just think about one at a time.

Conclude with a separate paragraph requesting whatever you are requesting in your letter--maybe this would only be an appointment to meet the addressee in person.

Lots of luck!
