To whom it may concern:

This reference letter is written on the request of Michael Moore to recommend him for the Summer Language and Communication Diploma at California State University.

I have known Michael for five years at New City School. During these years, I was very impressed with his interest in English language and communication skills development. Michael worked sincerely in English and other languages too. I am pleased to rank his performance in class superior because of his good attendance, grades and active participation in extra curricular activities.

We grade the students as per their performance in research paper. This paper requires the students to research on the given topic, to analyze the research results and write a brief paper. Michael showed great competency and talent in English language and writing skills. He also topped in the oral viva based on the research paper. Not only was he one of the scholar students in school, but he is also a good soccer player. He led our school team for last two years and usefully etched two championship trophies. I hope he will add great contribution to your program by his multifaceted personality.

Michael Moore is the best candidate for the program you are going to conduct in your university. If you would like to discus any additional information about Michael's education and qualification, please do not hesitate to contact me.
