Re: leave request

Dear Mr. Jafaree

I am writing to request a leave from work because I am planning my vacation during this tenure, as I have not used any leaves since July 2014. However, I would like to bring to your attention that vocational leave has been discussed with my reporting manager and I do not have any pending tasks at my end, and during my vacation I will be reachable on my email.

I would like to request 10 days from March 23, 2015 to April 2, 2015.

During this vacation I will be handing over my responsibilities to my colleague Mr. Khaled who will be handling any related tasks in my absence. Furthermore, in case of any unexpected developments or emergencies, I shall be available to contact on phone and through email.

Should you need any further details, please do not hesitate to contact me on my email or phone number.

Thanking you for your consideration and looking forward to a favourable response.

Yours sincerely,

Khalid Ali

Taking time off work

Dear Mr. Jack Wilson,

I am writing this letter in order to ask you about giving me permission to take some time off work tomorrow morning.

I am going to visit my doctor tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock to do some checks on my body because I have not felt well recently. I will meet my doctor in his clinic. It is about fifteen kilometres away from work, so it will take me about twenty minutes to get there and the checks will take at least two hours. That's why I am asking you to give me permission for three hours outside work. 

Mrs. Roby will cover all my work and she will send the banking business, also she will answer my phone and check the emails.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

With my regards,
Khawla M. Khafafa

Dear Mr. Torban,
I would like to get some time off work because in the last few days I read and advert on a website for a course in advanced English in one of the best centres in the city which I think will improve my English. Therefore, I would like to apply for an annual leave to attend this intensive course. The period of this course will be three months and it might extend for another month.

Also, please be informed that I have arranged with my colleague, Radia, to cover for me during the course. She is fully aware fo my work and is quite familiar with the system. 

I am looking forward to your approval of my request. Please feel free to contact me for any further information.

Sincerely yours,
Reem Albakoush

Re: A holiday request
Date: 9/3/2015

Dear Mr. Adernawe,

I am writing this letter to request some time off work.

I need this holiday because of my older brother's wedding. Also, it is the first wedding we have in my family and I cannot miss it. 

Moreover, my brother needs me in his wedding to help him in a lot of things. As you know, weddings in Libya was and still form the biggest event in Libyan families.

I think I need about 5 days for the wedding and 2 days to prepare and buy things for the wedding. All my work is on the computer and Internet and I know that it is difficult to leave my work and I know every 15 minutes I have to check the website to protect it from hackers.

I have told my best free 3 friends, who are my colleagues and work in the same room about covering my work when I am on holiday and they said that there would be no problem to do my work when I an on holiday.

Finally, if you need any details you can contact me on my email address at the top of the letter.

Kind regards,
Abdurrahman Ben Moftah

A Holiday in Jordan

In June 2013 I went to Jordan with my mother, father, brother and uncle. The day we arrived was a very special day for me because it was my first time travelling by plane.

After we arrived I went to a restaurant for a meal. I met a famous dentist in Jordan (Tamer). He was very friendly. Then I visited the Dead Sea. It was a nice place. I played with the sand and it was interesting. When we got home I emailed all my friends and my sister in Libya. I also sent them photos of me and my family.
