Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a native speaker of French with extensive language-teaching experience, currently pursuing a training course at GISOEL language centre in Glasgow. Given my qualifications and interests, I would like to apply for a job or a training course **which job? which training course? better to pick one, especially as one has a salary and the other takes a fee!** at XYZ language centre. **name the center to which you are applying.** I am particularly interested in **language?** education and I would like to increase my experience in this field as preparation for my **name the test** exam (PGDE) in French. My knowlegde of education is grounded in my degree in English philology from **name the university**, **name the city**, France. I extended this knowledge by working as a teacher for “Premier de la classe,” a French **tutoring?** company, during my time as a student. Indeed, I used to teach English to native French-speaking adults every Sunday morning and to give private lessons to struggling students in the evening. In addition, I used to meet my university English teacher to do a training course once a week. During my time as an au pair in England, I studied English in the Sixth Form at Farnham College, and passed my ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) exam. I also taught French, giving lessons to children **of what age? how many? give them lots of concrete examples of your experience.** every Saturday. Even in my personal hours, I helped the child in my host family with his homework. This experience confirmed to me that I would like to work in education. I enriched my understanding of the life of a French teacher in the United Kingdom by completing training courses in both a primary (St Andrew's, Farnham) and a secondary school (Weydon School, Farnham). I often sought advice from a French teacher in the Sixth Form at Farnham College about her job, and had the opportunity to observe her lessons in the classroom. I have a lively interest in education and would appreciate the opportunity to broaden my knowledge by working with you. I also would welcome the opportunity to discuss further details of the position with you personally. Yours faithfully, Mathias Gervaise
