Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing in response to your advertisement for a person to work in your summer sports camp for children.

I would be very interested in this job as I am very keen on sports. I play hockey in my school team and I also do cross-country running. I have played sports for many years and have sometimes helped younger children in my school.

In addition, I enjoy working with younger children, I have younger brothers and sisters and often babysit when my parents are out. I like playing games with them and teaching them new things. I also speak quite good English and would like the opportunity to practice this more.

As well as having these skills, I think I am the ideal person for you as I am outgoing and sociable and would enjoy working with people and children from different countries. It will help me improve my skills and would enable me to be independent and confident.

I hope you will consider me for this position.

Yours faithfully,

Sandra Maddox
