Mrs Barrett, an English-speaking woman who lives in your town, has advertised for someone to help her in her home for a few hours a day next summer. Write a letter to Mrs Barrett. In your letter: • suggest how you could help her in her home • say why you would like to do this work • explain when you will and will not be available

Dr Mrs Barrett, Hope
letter finds you well. I got to know that you would like a hand with some work for a few hours a day through the flyer delivered with the daily newspaper. You mentioned that you need to organize your garden area and would
like to set up a kitchen garden in your backyard as you are very fond of plants .You
added that you require the walls and fences to be painted. You expect the work to be completed by the end of summer. I would like to let you know that I would be pleased to assist you in your tasks. I studied horticulture and enjoy being around plants and I have good knowledge in the field. I have in past worked in several homes and planted beautiful shrubs that bloom in the spring. I
know quite well about herbs and kitchen plants. So, I can take care of your backyard too.
, I
have fun painting the fences at my home which I have been doing with my uncle since I was a child. I will be having some days off in May as that would be the end of the semester so I would be available during the day. But in June, I could come up only in the evening. I would be really grateful if you consider me for
job as it would help me improve my skills and I would be doing something that I really love. Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely yours, Anne
