Dear Mrs. Morris

I am writing to request your help. I attended a presentation skill course at your college from 12 September, 2012. My full name is Maryam Anas and my student number was GP 6731. The course I attended was Presentations skills training course, how to create and give successful presentations. My class instructors were James White and Anna Davis.

I am about to start work at a very new agency and they have asked me to provide information about the presentation skill and any assignments and reports. Unfortunately, I left all copies of these documents at my friend’s house and cannot contact her at present. Therefore, I would be very grateful if you could send me copies of the course outline, the two written assignments and the end of course report as soon as possible.

I would be happy to re-fund any postal charges. Thank you so much for your help in this matter.I look forward to receiving the copy outlines,

Yours sincerely,
