Hello, Cyril! I hope you'll be able to join us for Estelle's retirement party on September 30. We're meeting at the Elks Lodge for dinner at 7:00 PM. The menu selections are grilled chicken, steak, salmon with lemon butter, or vegetarian lasagna (made with almond cheese for vegans). Please let us know if you're planning to attend, how many people you're bringing, and your meal selection(s).
RSVP by September 23 so we can let the caterers know how many meals to prepare.
(Respond to the email as if you are Cyril. In your email, make two requests and explain one problem.)
"Civil disobedience" is when you break the law or social rules on purpose to bring attention to a cause (a principle or aim that a group supports or fights for) and push for change. People may be arrested when performing civil disobedience.
Is there a cause you think is worth being arrested for? What is it, and why do you feel that way?
Some people think that children should begin their formal education at a very early age and should spend their time on school studies. Others believe that children should spend most of their time playing. Which view do you agree with? Why?
What strategies do companies use to persuade us to buy products and services? Describe a good ad campaign and say why you think it is effective. Also write about a bad ad campaign. Say what they did wrong and suggest how they could have done a better job.

SUBJECT: Job posting
Dear Mr. Harris: I saw your job posting for a licensed medical assistant. I recently relocated from Paris and need to find work. I received my license from the Bureau de Médecin in 2011 and have kept it up to date since then. If the position is still open, I would like very much to apply. Please let me know what other information you need.
Thank you for your attention,

Interviewers want to know how you handle the failures that are bound to happen. They also want to see your attitude toward failure. It is easier to talk about successes, but you must be able to talk about your failures, too.
Write your answer as though you are actually in an interview.
