General Training - Model Answer (Task 1)

You would like a temporary job working in a summer camp which runs sports and outdoor activities for children and young people next summer.

 Write a letter to the organizers of the summer camp. In your letter:
  • explain what sort of job you would like to do
  • describe your personality
  • say what experience and skills you have
Dear Sir/Madam,

I am interested in a temporary job as an instructor next summer at your camp. I understand that there is a lake next to the camp and the children are offered canoeing lessons. As my university closes for three months in the summer this job would be ideal for me.

I enjoy working with children as I am an extremely social and friendly person. I am also adventurous and open to new experiences and meeting new people. I have a positive outlook to life and I believe these traits are required for this position.

I am the captain of the university canoeing team and I have held this position for 2 years now. I manage all aspects of the sport from the equipment to competitions. Currently my university ranks number one in this sport. This position has helped me improve my leadership and communication skills and has taught me how to be responsible for the other team members. I am also equipped with a first aid certificate, diving instructor’s certificate and I am a qualified lifeguard.
