Dear Sir, I am writing to bring to your notice that
month I had opted for a course on basic German as part of the institute’s mandatory requirement to learn a foreign language.
, now I would like to drop that subject and
opt for learning French.
To begin
with, I had opted for German
semester mainly due to the good reviews of the faculty teaching it.
, because of my inclination to migrate to Germany, I was highly motivated to get started with learning basic German.
, to my utter disappointment, the teacher allocated was someone else, and I am now finding it extremely difficult to follow him mainly due to his poor communication skills.
, he had remained absent for the
3 classes without giving us any notice which I felt was unprofessional on his part.
, I would like to request you now to allow me to opt-out of
subject, and
let me choose French as my language course. Another reason for switching to learning French is because of the scholarship that I have now received to pursue my masters in Paris. I thank you for your consideration and await your prompt response. Do let me know the exact formalities that I have to complete in order to make
switch. Yours faithfully, Abhinav
