Recommendation Letter

As part of the application process, some schools may request its applicants to submit letters of recommendation in English from those who are familiar with the applicant in either an academic or office setting. Teachers, college professors or employers are the strongest candidates to provide schools with accurate observations reflecting an applicant’s personality and strengths based upon academic or work-related success.

Letters of recommendation should be printed on letter size paper and run between 1 to 2 pages in length. The letters must include remarks concerning the applicant’s character as a student or worker, positive qualities as an individual and the applicant’s strengths he or she will add to the school’s English program.
