Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing to apply for the job you advertised in the ........ sports magazine on Sunday for the position of sports coach for children. I am seventeen years of age and I am a student in the ...............My mother tongue is .................but I have been studying English since I was eight years old and I have just passed CAE.

I think a good sports teacher should like children and be patient and calm with them. He or she should not lay emphasis on the technical side only but should also be able to entertain and make the classes funny and interesting.
I think I have these skills and I would very much enjoy doing the job.
I am available to start work immediately. I would be able to attend an interview at any time convenient to you. I can be contacted on ........... after 5 p.m.
Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to hearing from you.
