Writing to Ambassadors, Consuls and the like

Once people know that you are English and that you speak Italian, you often end up with some interesting requests for assistance.  Indeed, the other day, someone asked me to help her write a letter of invitation to the ambassador and the consul of a certain large country, which happens to be the origin of that ‘English’ dish curry, to speak at a conference to be held in Milan later this month.

Well, one of the letters was well received and at least one of the above mentioned parties has agreed to attend.  The person in question even complimented the style of the letter he received, which I guess earns me a few brownie points.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Sometimes, a well written letter can make all the difference, and help create the write, if you will excuse the pun, impression.  If anyone out there needs some help in this respect, and thinks I may be of some use, then send me a mail outlining what is needed, or even the letter in Italian, and I’ll see what I can do.  I will charge a minimum fee of around 50 Euros plus IVA for a a single A4 page.

Although 50 Euros may sound like a lot, if it clinches a contract or gets that all important acceptance to an invitation, then I think the expense will be justified.  And you will then have a copy of a letter which you can use again in similar circumstances.

I did not want to tell you about this particular bed and breakfast. Why? Because I am envious of the people who run it. Envious of the fact that they live a stone’s throw away from the medieval village of Anghiari in Tuscany, which can lay claim to being one of the most beautiful villages in all Italy.
