Dear Brian and Anna,

I am writing to express my interest in teaching Mandarin to your children for a year in Australia. I have recently graduated from university, where I achieved very high grades in my Language studies. I would be very excited to help share my language and culture with your children as an instructor. 

I would be happy to do more than instruct in language. I have worked with children my whole life, from babysitting while I was in school to helping take care of my siblings when my parents were working. I love spending time with children, and I would be eager to take your kids on adventures during the day. We could blend language learning with experiences in Australia.

This job would be an excellent opportunity for me. I have always dreamed of living in Australia. The chance to live with your family and experience everyday life in your country is the most exciting opportunity I can imagine. I have also always wanted to become a teacher, and this job will help me gain the experience necessary to teach as a career.

Yours sincerely,
