Letters of Request and Enquiry: Extending the Bullets

Next video: Tense Time- Present Perfect

OK, we know how to make great requests, but how can we make sure the person we are writing to agrees to help us? Well, you can find the answer to that question and more in this video. Hold on tight, as we learn

  • how to express our needs without using "want"
  • how to give the recipient or our letter a way of politely refusing our request
  • how to offer some compensation in return for the requested action
  • what letters of permission are, and how they differ from usual letters of request

Phew, that may seem like a lot for one video, and it is! However, to help you remember everything you have learned, don't forget to download my Letter of Request and Enquiry Cheat Sheet.
