Hi micle, 
I wouldn't use 'Yours cordially,' to end a letter. It's not a common way to end a letter (in the UK, at least) so I would use 'Yours sincerely,' as we have put in this exampl writing task. 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I would not dare to study in other country at all because there are to much things to do like passport,visa,etc..But the main reason is I do not want to see my parents are staying alone without someone take care

Volunteer projects

Dear Ms Robinson,

I am writing in response to the advertisement I saw in newspaper magazine for your volunteer projects. I am interested in joining one of your project and I would grateful if you could provide some further information.

Firstly, it says in the advertisement that the projects are two days long. Would it be possible to do more days project? I would also like to know what kinds of projects there are and where they are located.

Secondly, your advert mentions about morning and afternoon work. Could you specify which time it is exactly? Also I would like to know about lunch. Could you tell if it is provided or I have to bring my own?

Finally, I have question about fees. Would you mind to tell if there are any other costs except admin fees which is mentioned in the advert.

I really want to try myself as volunteer and would like to start as soon as possible.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Valentyn.

Dear Miss Black,

I am writing to you because I need further information on studying English at your school. I am very interested to know that whether your school has a three-week English course or just organizes a two-week course.

2. My second concern would be about the cost of the provided course. Would your management team provide a scholarship to eligible applicants? I wish I could grab the offer from you as my parents are worried that they cannot afford to pay for the registration fees.

3. I would be grateful if you could tell me more about the accommodation. Would I stay with the host family or with the other student?

I am looking forward to your response.

Yours sincerely,
Hopie

Hello Ms. Black:
I saw the advertisement you were publishing about learning English in the UK, so I am interested to do one of the courses; I will only like you to send me the different levels of courses so I can show my parents what this is about, and convince them so they let me study here.

Finally, I will like you to send me also the schedule, so I can show my parents the times also, bacause I have more activities after school.
Sincerely, Hugo G.

I'm now studying in a foreign country. But my biggest dream is to study in London. About four years I'm definitely going in London. I can't wait. :)
