  13. 13. Revising Letters (Part I) Original Message: Good day! I am writing you to ask for a slot in your class. Seeing that your class is the only feasible one I can take, would it be possible for you to accept another student? Better: Good day! Would it be possible for you to accept another student in your English Three class? Business Communication (EnglTri) S2 is the only feasible subject I can take this trimester, and I hope you could allow me a slot.
  14. 14. Revising Letters (Part I) Original Message: Good day! I am ______, a student of DLSC. EnglishTri is a required subject for freshmen, unfortunately EnglishTri/S2 is already full and the other sections of this given course has a conflict with my other subjects. I would like to ask for you permission so that I may join your section. Better: Good day! As you might already know, EnglishTri is a required subject for 1 st year students like me. Unfortunately, your Section S2 class is already full and the other sections offered do not fit into my other subjects’ schedules.
  15. 15. Revising Letters (Part I) Original Message: This letter requests your admittance to accept me in your English class. Though your section is currently full, I hope that technicality will deny the fact that I am not in that particular class. I am glad to tell you that my college studies are going quite swell. We don’t want that to happen, don’t we?
  16. 16. Revising Letters (Part I) Original Message: I would like to make a request from you to add me to your class in English 3 (Business Communication). This is very important to me because it is a prerequisite subject and it does not conflict my other classes. I am also a dean’s lister here in DLS-C. I hope that you would permit me to attend your class. Better: Please allow me to join your English Three, Section 2 class. Business Communication is a very important subject for me as it is a prerequisite to many other subjects I would need to finish my course. In addition, taking this English Three on time will help me a lot in maintaining my status as a dean’s lister. I hope that you would understand my situation and permit me to attend your class.
  17. 17. Revising Letters (Part I) Original Message: I have good news for you. You’ll be happy to know that. I, _________, a sophomore, with pleasing personalities would like to be in your class. Having difficulty in looking for the right class to graduate at the right time. I could save me money. Better: I would really like to join your English Three, section 1 class. Aside from the fact that the course would be quite useful to me in the future, I am also having a difficult time enlisting in other subjects for this trimester. If you would allow me to attend your class, there would be a greater chance for me to graduate on time and, consequently, save myself from additional financial expenses. I would be truly grateful.
  18. 18. Revising Letters (Part I) Original Message: Our director in the IT & Computing department, Mrs. Magpantay, told me to take the other section of ENGLTRI (English Three) due to a conflict with an elective that has to be taken up this term. I just got word form the registrar’s office that the other section of ENGLTRI is already full. And they said that the only way to be enlisted in the other section of ENGLTRI is to write a formal letter of request to the professor. Through the approval of the request, transferring to the other section will be a big help to maintain my regularness of being a BSCS student. Better: I was advised to enlist in your ENGLTRI, section S2 class for this trimester, but the registrar’s office just recently informed me that all the slots in your section have been filled. This posts a big problem for me since the other section for ENGLTRI is in conflict with my schedule for a required elective. In this light I humbly ask you to enlist me in your S1 class. This will help me a lot to maintain my regular status as a BSCS student.
  19. 19. Revising Letters (Part I) Original Message: English Three is one of my major subjects in my course and it is a must that I take this subject in order for me to graduate in time. If I don’t take this subject now the next time English Three would be offered is next term (2006). I am looking forward to your reply. Thank you for your expected cooperation. Better: English Three is one of my major subjects and it is very important for me to take it this trimester. If I wait until the next time they offer English Three again (which might be in 2006!), I might not be able to graduate on time. This makes me extremely worried. I hope that you would understand my situation and allow me to enlist in your class. Your favorable response will be much appreciated.
