DearSir, Madam,Throughthis motivational letter, I would like to put forward my candidacy forenrolment in this course. By reading your programme available online, I havefound that it will best suit my goals and will help me to fulfil myself in bothprofessional and personal contexts. Iam currently finishing my last year of gymnasium and I am trying to become abetter version of myself in order to achieve my goals. My biggest dream is toenter the university, therefore, I am trying very hard: I am studyingindependently, attending English courses at the language school and takingprivate lessons.
Moreover, I am fond of Russian and Lithuanian literature and Ihave begun to read more English books and writings. Reading has been one of mypassions –it has significantly impacted my life in many ways: it not only has increasedmy vocabulary and broadened my mind, but it alsoallowed me to enter into new worlds. As Virginia Woolf said, “Read athousand books and your words will flow like a river.” While reading, I oftenuse the dictionary, which helps me with the translation and semantics.Furthermore, I use YouTube video clips to improve my English listening skillsand expand my vocabulary. My favourite channel is ‘JamesESL English Lessons’,which helps me to start speaking like native speakers and inspires me to learnEnglish.Ispend the rest of my time writing poems, listening podcasts and music, watchinghistorical and art movies in English to learn new words and phrases.
What ismore, I have mastered a new style of dance – “The Vogue”. I have participatedin competitions individually and with the group, there were lots of ups anddowns. It has helped me to become more flexible, organized, think “out of thebox”, and most of all, it has improved my communicative skills.Mygreatest desire is to speak, write, read English professionally and to learnanother language.
As Frank Smith said:”One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every dooralong the way.”Oneof the biggest advantages of studying abroad is the opportunity to meet peoplefrom all over the world, share your ideas and experience a foreign culture.Theafter-school time period and studying abroad is going to be the one of mostchallenging steps in my life, but I believe I can cope with any difficulties. Iam sure that I will be able to maintain high standards and am willing tocontribute to your university.
I hope that I have convinced you of my excellent capabilities and my passionatemotivation to start studying at your university.Thankyou for considering my request. I am really looking forward to hearing fromyou. Kindregards, ArinaIrina Shcheniavskaja
