Dear Mr Sullivan, I am writing to you to express my interest in the job as a Spanish instructor that was advertised in the magazine "Teaching Professional" in April. I would like to apply for the position that you offer. I graduated from the University of Sydney in 2017 with a bachelor's degree in linguistics. I learned Spanish as my second language at the university for four years.
, I have two years of experience in teaching both Spanish and English to high school students in Japan. Recently, I retired from high school teacher to move on to my next stage, so I am delighted to find
recruitment by chance. I am so responsible and enthusiastic about teaching that I believe my personality
as well as
my experience suit the job. Please contact me by email or phone call if you need more information about me. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration. Yours sincerely,
