Complaint Letter

Dear Manager,

On Nov. 13, 2011, I purchased a Logitech Speaker System Z906, model #120056, from your store at 666 Main St. in London.

Unfortunately, the product does work as intended. While the Z906 starts up fine, it turns itself off after just five or ten minutes of operation. I am disappointed because I have paid for a Widget that is clearly not in working order. Each time it shuts itself down, I have to restart it manually.

Please resolve this problem by issuing a full refund. I paid a lot of money for the speaker system, and thus prefer cash in return. I have enclosed a copy of the receipt.

I am confident that your store stands by its products. Please let me know at your earliest convenience when I may return the faulty z906 and obtain a replacement that's in full working order.

I'm looking forward to your reply and the resolution of this matter. I will wait three weeks before turning to a consumer protection agency or the Better Business Bureau. Please contact me by phone at 551-325-7356.

Sincerely,

A.I. Nekrashevich

The Epic Letter

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to ask for more information about your travel agency's offer to Forgotten Temple in South China. I am very interested in this offer and I would like get some details about it.
Firstly, it is not very clear for me whether your company arranges flights from Estonia? I would like to fly from Tallinn, if that is possible.
Secondly, I would like to know more about accommodation. Also I would like you to reserve a place for me, so that safety of the trip could be guaranteed. If it is possible I would prefer not to share a room with some strangers.
Thirdly, can you please tell mea bit of information about flora and fauna of the South China where Forgotten Temple is located.
And finally, I know that China is abounding different foreign vegetation and dangerous creatures and bugs, so could you please advice me something to keep my heath under the control.
I look forward to hearing from you.


Yours faithfully,
Andrei Nekrashevich

Why do I like travelling

I like travelling but I am not really a well travelled man yet. There is nothing better that going somewhere you have never been before, discovering all the things there are to discover.

I am used to travelling since childhood. When I was 7 I have already visited 2 countries, Turkey and Italy. By the way, did you know that wild animals in Turkey are used to the sight of people taking photos of them? When I was living in Italy, I gradually got used to sleeping under a mosquito net. Returning back to my topic, I want to say that traveling is a chance for people to see other nations, their cultures/traditions and the landscapes in other countries. It also gives you other opportunities such as learning foreign languages and meeting new friends.

To sum up, I want to say that traveling is great because it really opens up your horizons and exposes you to new experiences. It is really a shame that some people are not used to travel nowadays.

Should cloning be banned?

Nowadays many people around the world are talking about cloning. Cloning has it's own pros and cons. But should it be banned?

Yeah sure, cloning is really useful if you need fresh organs for sick people. But to clone a whole human is kinda.... kinda unrealistic and unethical.

Some people are too sentimental and a loss of their favourite pet would make them really upset. And in that case cloning might help them. You can clone a pet that has died and it will make the person happier.

I am not against cloning but I think it will not advance in the next 15 years. We still have other technologies that we need to improve.

To sum it up I would say that cloning is not bad enough to ban it. But think of todays situations. There are Siberian Tigers who are on the verge of extinction and yet scientist clone sheep which you can see almost everywhere.

The importance of a good memory

I think that good memory is really important nowadays. It makes your life much more easier, gives you more free time and also helps you in different aspects of your life.

Good memory helps you remember different things easily. For example, if you have good memory you can spend 2 hours preparing for your exam when the guy who has bad memory would need 6 hours. Personally I can just sit through different subjects and only listen to what teacher says and that would be enough for me to fully understand the subject and get 5 or sometimes 4 on the test.

The importance of it is manifested not only in school. You would not forget anecdotes that you hear so you could tell them to your friends or family members. You can also work more effectively: remember all meetings, names of your co-workers, their abilities and other important stuff.

Also nowadays the more languages you know - the better for you. The more languages you know - the more chance that you would get a job. And the better your memory is - the faster you will learn a foreign language.

A Description of an Event

About a year ago I went to a great opening of a new exhibition in a museum of dinosaurs. It was was a very interesting
and unique event that I would not forget.
It started with a speech by one of the organisators, John Smith, who explained how their museum was different from other similar ones. As he said, their exhibition is unique because they have more exhibits than other museums and also they have better quality of the data. Then he told us than now we can freely walk around and examine exhibits. As the exhibition was so huge, there were maps and signs everywhere in case anyone got lost.
The exhibition started in a big, green chamber with trees as scenery to reflect the main theme of the exhibition - the Mesozoik Era.
We looked at the scenery and dinosaurs with our mouths wide open as gentle music played in the background to get us in the perfect mood.
Then, our guides dressed like ancient people, took us to the next room where we could see the greatest of all dinosaurs - T-Rex.
To sum it up, I would say that the opening if this exhibition was a really fantastic event. The idea of launching an exhibition with an interactive event like this, so that the public can really experience it, is an example for other museums to follow.
