A Letter of Inquiry
Foreign Language Department,
Xi'An 710049, P.R. China
University of Birmingham
I am a Chinese teacher and I am teaching English in the English department of Xi'An Jiaotong University. In the coming October, I will go to your university to further my studies in the English department.
I have learnt from the magazine of Birmingham University published by the guild of students that I must apply for my accommodation in advance. Since I am coming alone, I prefer a room in a flat on the campus. I'd like to share the flat with five students from different countries so that I can gain more cultural background knowledge.
I am just writing to ask a favour of you. If not possible, what kind of accommodation could you offer me?
Your kind help would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to your early reply.
