I (write) in reply to your advertisement for Tour Guides in last Sunday’s Telegraph.
At the moment, I (study) Tourism at the London Tourism Academy.
I (finish) my course next June and (be) available to start work from the start of July.
Apart from studying Tourism, I (do) a part-time French translation course.
Although I (never/go) to France, last year I (go) to Belgium for two months to work as an au-pair in a French family and my spoken French (be) quite good.
I also (speak) German, though not as fluently as French, and by the time I complete the Tourism course I (take) the Oxford Intermediary Exams in both German and French.
With regards to my previous work experience, I (work) many times as local tour guide in my home town, and I think I have the relevant qualities and experience to be able to do the job well.
If you require any further information, I can be contacted by telephone on 0171 223 565.
