How to Write a Letter About Likes & Dislikes of Taking a Class

Save

A formal letter about taking a class is your chance to share with authority figures your impressions and experiences in the classroom. It is important to remain professional and respectful throughout the letter. Include your likes and dislikes, but remember that there is an appropriate way to articulate these without offending your instructor.

  • Format your letter using the traditional block letter format. Set up your document to left justify, and single space your entire letter. Use a single blank line after the date, address, greeting and each body paragraph. Use four blank lines after your closing and personal address. Set one-inch margins on all sides, and use 12 point font. Keep your punctuation consistent, and use a colon after your greeting and a coma after your closing. Do not indent paragraphs.

  • Determine who your audience is by requesting a list of people who will read the letter from whoever asked you to write it. Assume the class instructor will read your letter even if his name does not appear on the list provided.

  • Identify aspects of the class you enjoyed as well as areas that could use improvement. Keep your list respectful by avoiding harsh or overly descriptive language. Include potential solutions to aspects you disliked by explaining how you would solve each specific problem from your perspective as a student. For instance, if you believe a history class could benefit from additional time being devoted to a particular time period, suggest that, and then suggest a few things from the class that you believe could be dropped or seemed repetitive.

  • Include specific examples of positive aspects you saw and the positive effect it had on the class. Cite specifics about how it made you feel and how it helped you remember the information. Describe other students' positive reactions that you witnessed.

  • Describe negative issues you witnessed in the class, with a suggested solution to each problem. Explain specifics about how you felt, how it kept you from remembering the information and relay input from other class members about the problems.
