Dear Sir/Madam My name is Felix. I am pursuing my bachelor degree at the Cleveland Community College, Cleveland, USA. For my thesis work, I am working in the Confocal Microscopy to study the pathology of prion-infected mouse brain tissues. I found out from my supervisor that the Norquest college in Toronto is conducting the Advanced Confocal Microscopy course for two weeks. I am very much interested in the class and got registered for the course. I am writing this email to request you to help me in finding accommodation. I heard it's a very intensive course which starts at morning 8 am and goes till 6 pm. So, I would prefer a place in close vicinity to the college. I can also share a room if it is possible. I would highly appreciate if you can help me in finding accommodation for my two weeks stay in Toronto. I am attaching my passport and the Confocal Microscopy course registration letter as an attachment to this email. Please let me know if you need any further information. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Felix
