As usual, SIMPLE, CONCISE, SMOOTH, SUCCINCT and of course GREAT👍

Dear Simon,
Some textbooks instruct to summarize main ideas in introduction. It gives examiner a clear picture of what we are going to write about.
I would like to see your point of view about this.

FROM SIMON:

Thanks Shakhzod!

...

ilkin,

I think that would cause too much repetition. It would also be a waste of time, and a waste of space in the letter.

Dear Simon,

In this letter,in second question, they asked (ask the teacher about her teaching experience and methods)

My question is
they mentioned (about her teaching experience), here her is used for a female teacher. and we are writing Dear Mr. Smith.
Is it ok to write this?

lokesh,

Well noticed! I went to my usual 'default' name Mr. Smith, and I missed the word 'her' in the question!

This wouldn't affect the score, but it shows that we all need to read the task carefully!

I am writing to ask whether you are or will be available to help my son with some after school Spanish lessons.

should there be are or will be
