To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter to you to ask if there is a child in need of financial sponsorship through the Hope Foundation.

I am willing to give financial aid to those children who have not had a chance to receive education in poverty-stricken area. I would like to help two kinds of children:first,those who do not have a stable source which can cover their education fees,and second,those whose academic performance in school is excellent.

There is no doubt that I meet the criteria required for a sponsor and look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,
Li Ming

二、推荐信 2011(英一)

Write a letter to a friend of yours to
1) recommend one of your favorite movies and
2) give reasons for your recommendation.

Dear Michael,

I’m writing to tell you about a fantastic movie I have just watched, as we always share the same taste of movies.

The movie is Avatar, which tells a story of a soldier who, on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms, finds himself torn between two worlds in a fight for the survival of the alien people. Besides the touching and thrilling story, the movie also features brilliant visual effects, thanks to the talented director and advanced computer technology.

So I recommend it to you as one of the best movies I have ever watched. I’m sure you will love it as much as I do. I’m looking forward to discussing more with you after you watch it.

Yours sincerely,
Li Ming
