APPLICATION FOR A SCHOLARSHIP
3. Write a letter of application for a scholarship.
I am writing to apply for a British Council scholarship to study in Britain. I did my five years’ basic training in medicine at Salamaned University. After this I successfully completed a one-year postgraduate course in ophthalmology at the Barcelona General Hospital where I am at present serving a two-year probation in the Eye clinic.
As a result of the publication in 1976 of my article in The Lancet entitled ‘Soft and Rigid Contact Lenses’, which was based on a survey of 37 patients over 6 months, I made contact with Dr. Jermyn of St. Thomas’s Hospital and with Dr Asker Holm of the University college Hospital. I have received their help and advice with my current research project, which is a two-year survey of the acceptance of various types of contact lenses in 200 patients.
Despite their help, I feel that I can’t make real progress in this filed unless I can actually have day-to-day contact with these specialists. I would therefore like to continue my research either at St Thomas’s or UCH as soon as my probationary period here is completed, and I would like to study in Britain for two years.
I enclose a detail curriculum vitae and an off print of my article, together with a letter of recommendation from Dr Jermyn.
I look forward to hearing from you.

8. Write a letter to a local newspaper appealing for support for a project to help old people in your area.
Feb 10, 2015
To The Editor
The Kathamndu Post
Sub: Kind appeal for support for a project to assist old people.
I would like to draw your kind attention towards the social welfare based on elderly people. I would like to inform you that there are at least 5,000 people over the age of 65 in our town. As well as there are many old age pensioners (OAPs) in the streets. So a campaign must be conducted to support such needy people by running a project. We have also planned to make a volunteering visit to such centers. Now we have 25 volunteers so far. For this its meeting is going to be held at 8 pm on Friday 28 October. The venue is Black Bull.
It is obvious that old age is very fragile and helpless stage of life. Old people can’t move here and there freely like young. Those OAPs also need enough food and heat. The state has provided 25 pound per week which is very insufficient amount. Moreover, old people need special attention in many ways besides food. For them volunteer should have tolerance and patience in dealing. Since their brain cells don’t regenerate they have poor eyesight. Naturally, they are often bad-tempered too.
Therefore, we have planned to build a Community Center for OAPs that requires enough fund because the support provided by local authority is very less. This shows a rigorous need of volunteer support by different sectors and people. If any individual or organization wishes to assist we have Hutchins Bank account in High Street. The account No is 25667.
It is our duty and responsibility for helping old and needy people. Obviously, we must be generous for the culture and noble community towards groups. Thus, we are waiting for your kind help for elderly who are like our own guardians.
9. Write a letter asking for advice on how to learn a foreign language. Mention some of the ways that you have heard about or have tried, and ask readers to write in with their experiences.
I am writing this letter asking for the advices to learn a foreign language. Foreign language has become very essential in global market, adjust in world culture and rapid mobility among the countries. The best means of communication is language, so we must be familiar with the foreign language of any country.
I have heard and learnt that there are enough materials for learning any foreign language such as websites, You-tube videos, dictionaries, grammars books or rule or guide books. As we choose, which language to learn about we must be familiar about its pronunciation. It we can’t follow the spoken pattern, how can we get familiarity with it. Moreover, the pile of vocabulary and sequences of structures must be known and utilized in speaking. For this, the grammar of particular language must be exercised well. These are some concepts I have understood so far regarding learning foreign language at any cost.
Moreover, please write me back with detailed about different techniques that are useful in gaining proficiency in foreign languages. I have skills of speaking four foreign languages so far. I would like to increase this number. Feel good in giving me suitable procedures of gaining the foreign languages.

10. Write a letter explaining about the treatment – good or bad that you recently received during a visit to a foreign country or to anther part of your own country.
Thank you very much for sending me a letter including your experiences of journey. As you asked me I am going to write in this letter about my experience that I received during my journey to the Eastern part of Nepal. Last month I had been to Jhapa, far Eastern part of Nepal as well as to llam district. Here I am going to mention about various experiences I got during the course.
Actually, I was taught by friends that eastern people are normally proud and they easily deceive humble western part’s people. I had a concept of biasness about the people before then. As I visited different parts of Jhapa district, I got realized that the truth was different. I found Jhapali people kind, helpful and generous. Though I realized some linguistic variation the loyalty, sense of humor and sense of humanity I found same as with the people of my hometown regions.
I experienced in our culture that the foreigners and strangers are god like people. Basically guests are the people sent by god. This feeling was also found in the behaviours of the people there. Then only I realized why the generosity and humbleness of all Nepali is respected in every nook and corner of the world. If a Nepali is killed in an accident that belonged to West, all the nation and people of nation ache severely. This quality of humanity and kindness is hardly found in any other culture of the world.
Opposite to my expectation, I got total different experiences that made my journey memorable and unforgettable. As the greenery and non-polluted air in Ilam, the people were helpful, kind and generous. I was served with various local foods and goods where I had spent my night stays. I hardly forget thèse colours of hospitality.
This much for today. I will include if anything in the upcoming correspondences.
11. Write a letter relating how you bought something and later had to take it back to the SOLUTION OF BUSINESS COMMUNICATION shop three times before it would work properly.
I purchased a Lenovo i5 Laptop from your sales department last monin, but I have only got obstacles and problems since I bought it. If has also become. a not matter of great tension and a cause of irritation since I bought it and I have received proper treatment from your side.
As I was purchasing it you had provided one year’s warranty and even in case of request home repair service with distance cost. The moment I installed it for my use, to my surprise I couldn’t get on it as you had highlighted in your estimation bill. Sooner, I called to your sales department but there was no convincing reply. Then, I myself approached there carrying it, but there was no immediate inspection about it. I was told to leave it there so I proceeded. As || I went there to receive after a week later, it was not touched even. I complained in the reception, she just smiled and tried to convince me by words.
Actually, the DVD player is not properly working and it has poor speaker so that the sound can’t be heard clearly. It was said the battery can have up to five hours back up but it is humorous to mention that it just maintains up to 2 hours. I had paid Rs. 65,000 for having 1 TB Hard Disk but it turned to be 500 GB. It is great cheating. Time and again I visited you, requested you for my gadget but you didn’t pay convincing attention. Now I am fully dissatisfied with your service. I want to get my money back. If it is done normally, I will receive it. If there is still entanglement, I will take help of Any Complaint TV program. If it is the case,
the company will have to bear huge loss. So please manage to resolve my problem as soon as possible. I look forward to getting positive and convincing response very soon.
12. Write a letter complaining about smoking in public places. Give as many reasons a possible against it, and suggest remedies.
I would like to draw the attention of all the public who are directly and indirectly prone to be the victims of smoking in public places. Health is prime right of all citizens of any nation. Supporting it, the researches have found out that Passive smokers (people who don’t smoke themselves but face smoking fume more or less due to other smokers) have brought very challenging problems in the world. So, a creative and practical solution must be adopted at the earliest.
First, a number of children, adults and common people are victims of various diseases due to smokers in public places. They become passive smokers though they have never touched any tobacco. That leads them to face the challenges of various respiratory diseases. Sometimes there is no medicine for the disease when it reaches at top level.
Secondly, there is high pollution of the areas and sitting places are some examples, the parks get together zones, bus stations, visitors waiting places. Anyone who happens to reach there becomes the victim of smoking.
Moreover, the restaurants hotels and lunching places are zones having free smoking. This tradition must be controlled at any cost as soon as possible. The government should declare strict rules and verdict to have particular level of punishment to those smokers. There must be separate and non-infected zone for smoking for the people who are already addicted. Elevator, waiting rooms, public sections and nooks and corners of the sector have become major places of smoking and infection of the smoking.
Therefore, the public place smoking culture must be eliminated by any cost. Public must be aware about the infecting disease; by smoking. Those who violate the code and conduct must be penalized severely. Government must circulate warning notice by various media so that, it will approach everywhere. Ultimately, this culture should be discouraged and limited by all.
I Look forward to getting more and more public responses against smoking in the public places.
13. Write a letter expressing your reactions against punishment to children at learning, published in the newspaper.
I am writing this letter replying to Jarvis Pritchart’s letter about last week’s editorial ‘Discipline in our school. It is normally accepted norm that discipline is necessary in every sector and in every profession. This is not meant that in the name of discipline, punishment should be used. This mistreatment may cause bad impact in children’s psychology.
This issue of punishment to disobeying children seems convincing and useful in the previous days but at present proper psychological treatment theory is adoptable in schools and academic institutions. Actually speaking, such dictatorship is useful in police and army recruitment. If the mild and psychological treatments are implied in school going children, the better results will be achieved. A child can be made more talented not by pressure but by creative freedom. The concept of moral guidance to children is very acceptable concept. But it should be child friendly and in accordance to child psychology. To teach moral lesson we shouldn’t force a child. In this point I disagree with major Pritchart’s. We should use creative, dynamic and acceptable approach to build a humane society with noble human beings and similar theory in children’s learning process.
I look forward to hearing various experiences from other readers.
