諮詢信--要求更改課程

Dear professor Moss:

I am Sandy Lee, an undergraduate student of the department of Electrical and
Computer Engineering. At the beginning of this semester, I registered one of
your courses, African Literature and Culture. It is a two-hour course held on
every Thursday afternoon. Yesterday, I received a notice from my department
that a major course, Computer Principle, would be changed to Thursday
afternoon. This major course conspicuously influences my credits and it is
every important to me. Unfortunately, I can not study your course this
semester.

Because of your reputation and my enthusiasm in literature, I hope I could
study this course in next semester. I also heard that another course of yours,
China Literature, is held every Friday afternoon. If the registration of this
course hasn’t closed yet, I will be so glad to participate in your class.

Sorry to bother you, your help will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

Sandy Lee

作為一名員工,為本飯店的發展提建議

Dear General Manager,

As a staff of Sales Department, I’m very glad to see the rapid development of
our hotel. With the coming of New Year, I am writing to you to pre I think more
on the further improvement of our hotel—to establish a website of our own to
attract more clients.

Firstly, with the development of Internet, more and more people are willing to
go to the outside world through the information on Internet. Thus if we could
establish our own website and introduce ourselves on it, more friends,
especially foreign friends, could know our latest promotion at home whenever
they want. Secondly, according to the statistics of World Hotel Association,
33% of clients made hotel reservation through the Internet last year. And the
proportion will largely increase in year 2000. Thus if we could introduce
reservation system on our homepage, clients could contact us and make
reservation directly. Finally, hotel promotion on Internet could reduce our
operation cost greatly.

As someone says that Internet shorten the distance of the world, I believe that
the one who could make use of Internet effectively today will be the winner
tomorrow. We will get a lot and have a brilliant future.

Yours sincerely,

Livia Lim

用納稅人的錢修路,改善交通狀況

To construct and maintain roads is a public service administered by the
government. However, where does the money come from? Somebody believe that the
government should allocate money from national finance on the road
construction; but others think that the roads are constructed for people, so
every tax-payer has the responsibility for constructing and maintaining the
roads. It is so called “What is taken from the people is used in the
interests of the people.”

To the first opinion, since government is the administrative organ, it has
responsibility to do overall plan on those public services of city
construction, including constructing the road. They think that the government
should do plan and allocate every penny on all things concerning people’s life.

However in reality, the government cannot do all specific plans and money
allocations on every detail concerning the society running. It only has the
right of macro-adjustment and control. To be specific on the road construction,
many people believe that based on the principle above, since the road is
constructed for the convenience of people themselves, every tax-payer has duty
to devote a little on the road construction, which is not only for the city
overall plan, but also for their own use fundamentally. Once the constructions
finish, the roads will be wider and longer, the facilities along the roads
will be better in use, by then people could further improve their working
efficiency, etc..

As I know, the second opinion is more reasonable and feasible, because it has
two advantages: 1. The government could reduce heavy burdens, simplify and
make clear the usage of money; 2. Tax-payers are clear about the usage of money
they turn over, thus improve the transparency. Therefore, it is a good measure
for both sides to allocate money from the tax paid by people on the road
construction.

遺失信----財物遺失在民航班機上,寫信給機場海關請求幫助

Dear officer:

In 01/01/2000, I took flight CA983 from Beijing to Los Angeles. When the flight
arrived at Los Angeles, because of my carelessness, I left my handbag, a black
leathered bag, on my seat. There are some important things in it, including my
passport, ID card, credit card, some checks and one thousand US Dollars. But
the most important thing is my business address book, in which record all my
clients’ phone numbers and appointment agenda in the following two weeks.

Since this bag is very important to me, my friends told me that I should
contact your department to seek help, so I write this letter to you anxiously.
Hope you and your staff can help me find my lost bag. Your meticulous and
warmhearted help will be greatly appreciated.

For information about my lost thing, please contact me in the following ways.

Mobile phone: 13901160626

Home phone: 82326258

Office phone: 82326255

Yours sincerely

Will Smith

有人給學校捐款,建議如何使用。

Dear President, November 11, 1999

I ’ m very happy to hear that a famous author has donated considerable money to
our institute. And I think we could use it to establish an education fund to
aid our teachers to study abroad.

Firstly, teachers could increase their teaching level and enrich their
knowledge by studying aboard. For teachers of a language institute, this kind
of experience is really necessary. Teachers would consider that as a kind of
prize and therefore work harder for that. Secondly, our institute could be
benefited from doing that. Since we could provide the overseas-studying chance
for our teachers, graduates with high score in the Normal Colleges are more
willing to come to our institute. Thirdly, that will help our students. Our
last year’s survey showed that 65% of our students prefer the language teachers
who had overseas-studying experience.

In a word, I think that using the donated fund to assist our teachers to study
abroad is a good way to promote the healthy development of our institute.

Please take good consideration of my advice. Thanks!

Yours sincerely,

Livia Liu
