The sample letter contains eight gaps. Complete it by putting a word or phrase from the box below in each space.
I normally eat lunch at the college cafeteria because it
is reasonable priced, convenient and it has a friendly atmosphere.
There are, however, a number of deficiencies which I think should be . Firstly, although the staff try to keep the tables clean, there are not workers at peak times to clear their tables themselves then they have finished eating.
, some students do not bother to do this. Also, there are a number of students who do not wait in the queue to be served, which is very for the majority of us. Finally, I think the cafeteria could have better ventilation as it gets , especially in the summer.
I think it would be a if more signs were put around the cafeteria asking students to put their dirty plates and cutlery on the trolleys provided and to throw away their leftovers and rubbish. Also, I think we tell students when they are being anti-social and jumping the queue. Finally, we please have a few windows open when things get too hot?
