com 3rd December 2010 Dear Sir/Madam Re: Advertisement of TEFL teaching posts in Murcia. I am writing in reply to the advertisement of English teaching jobs in your academy, posted on the esl base website. My CV is attached for your consideration. I would consider myself to be a positive and proactive person who has the ability to teach both to a complete beginner or someone who already has a basic grasp of the English language. As someone who regularly teaches sport in the local community I feel I have the relevant skill, understanding and patience in order to cope with the demands of teaching a new subject or skill to someone. After completing my TEFL course, I am now very keen to put the teaching skills I learned into practice. And I would therefore welcome the opportunity to teach for you from January 2011 onwards. I hope my application is successful and I look forward to hearing from you. Yours faithfully Jonathan Denton
