Sample answer
Dear Mr Spiller
Thank you very much for your email informing me that I have won first prize in the competition. I am looking forward to going to Australia and attending the course.
I would like to do the course in August because I have to go back to university in September. In the morning, I would like to join the grammar and vocabulary class because I think there will be lots of opportunities for speaking and listening in the evenings.
In the afternoon, I would like to try making a class website because I think this would be a very useful skill to have in the future. I would also be interested in doing a scuba diving course because Australia is famous for the Great Barrier Reef and one day I would love to go scuba diving there.
Could you tell me what type of accommodation is provided and what kind of clothes I should bring with me?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes
Francesco Vacca
