You are an university student who are living in the accommodation at the campus

You are an university student who are living in the accommodation at the campus. One day you find something wrong with your accommodation. So you write a letter to the House Officer to tell them what happened, the reason you think, what you decide to do, and whether if it is right. 

Dear Sir/ Madam, I am writing with regard to a problem with my accommodation. My name is John smith; I am a resident in flat number 20 in the International Student Housing. I have been facing a problem with the electricity, and I would like to inform you about it. And I want your further suggestions concerning this manner. 

The problem started on the 31st of June, when I came back from the university I found that the electric energy went down. I though the problem with ECERP, since they are the utility company responsible for the electric service on this side of the city. What support my though was I was not sure weather or not I had updated my account with them when I move to my new flat. So I sent a mail with my new flat number. And till this moment, there is no electricity in my accommodation. 

In conclusion, I want your suggestions concerning the cause of this drop in electric power. Additionally, I would like your suggestion about the sort of act I had done and weather or not I have the right to contact ECERP directly. Thank you very much for your time and consideration and I am looking forward to hearing from you. 

Yours faithfully,

A letter from father to son complaining of his neglect in business

My dear …,

Perhaps you are not aware how much concerned I am at your indifferent attitude to our business affairs, which has reflected itself in the mismanagement of our manufacturing plant. Negligence once in a while is excusable but if it occurs too frequently, it is sure to affect our business adversely. I can no longer allow this situation to continue for sooner or later we have to close down our plant. You ought to know that the soul of business lies in hardworic and punctuality. Do I have to remind you that perseverence and dedi-cation are two virtues for successful management of business?

It gave me a great shock to learn from my customers that you were not meeting their demands and that your belated responses to their enquiries had turned them away to our rival companies. Dear son, this hardly augurs well for our business. You must shake off your idle and slovenly traits and get down to serious work. It seems you have associated with unscrupulous characters lately and shed your responsibility as the manager of the business concern.

Please think seriously about the responsibility you shoulder and act accordingly; it is never too late to mend yourself. I sincerely hope that you would take my advice seriously and take a determined course to bring credit and respect to our business concern as well as to your family..

Your affectionate father.

Some people believe that in order to succeed in today’s world one needs luck

What is a very important skill a person should learn in order to be successful in the world today? Choose one skill and use specific reasons and examples to support your choice.

 Some people believe that in order to succeed in today’s world one needs luck. However, I agree with those people who think that luck has nothing to do with the success, only hard work and belief in one’s self can get one through all obstacles and overcome difficulties. There is a word for such a skill it is persistent. I believe that people who are persistent can do everything they want because can not give up and go with the tide. Of cause, there is a bunch of different skills that people need to succeed. However, my point is that persistent is the most obviously important characteristic of successful persons. Take for example a famous actress W. Goldberg. She had many refusals at the beginning of her career. But she always believed in herself and did not stop looking for the new opportunities. Now she is one of highly paid actress in the movie business. Or take for example Disney. I do not remember his first name. He was a poor guy who liked to draw fairy heroes. Before his success he got through many failures but did not stop doing what he liked and enjoyed. His success came with a little mouse called Mikky. I belief that people who overcame many obstacles become stronger and wiser. So, basicly, persistent teach people believe in themselves, analyze their previous mistakes and learn to avoid them next time, be patient, curious and optimistic.

Your school has enough money to purchase either computer for students or books for the library

Your school has enough money to purchase either computer for students or books for the library. 

Today’s schools budget is very small, so it is almost impossible to equip classes with modern equipment or to purchase new books to the school library. Fortunately, there are external investors who improve school conditions. My school has received enough money to purchase either computer for students or books for the library. I would like to recommend the school principals purchasing modern computers and additional equipments. Down below I will try to give some reasons and examples to support my suggestion. The first reason why to invest money into computers and not into the books is due to the ability of computer to connect through global network and reach any possible book in the world without spending additional resources. For this reason I would propose purchasing four computer sets with internet connection. Thus the students could find instantly required information such as researches, books and so on. This will help the students to complete their assignments shortly and it will be possible to abandon additional space in library by means of decreasing book’s amount. Another possible way is creating of computer classes. This would allow the school opening new subjects for instance computer engineering, programming, web design. The students from poor families will get the chance to enjoy the technology progress as their wealthy fellows. As a result the school's popularity will be increased and new students from all statuses will join the school and as a result the school's budget will be increased as well. The additional profitability is the prestige. It is known that the name of the establishment is like a trademark for cars or sport’s wears. For example Oxford and Harvard is parallel to Mercedes and Adidas. School with good equipped classes and advanced networking technologies has more chances to become famous, namely to turn to trademark. Thus the school could rise the tuition fees and as a result to be financially independent. To conclude, I see the only profits in technology progress investment, so I would suggest purchasing computers. To sum up, the investing in education could ensure us the good future, because the school is a basis for growing up new generation.
