Dear Madam/Sir, This is to expresses my interest in the position of English – French – Swahili translator and interpreter. I am inspired to apply and hopefully become a member of Worcester Public Schools team. Worcester Public School’s effort to provide language diversity is a definite asset for a sustainable progress of new arrivals in the district. Therefore, I will be delighted to facilitate your effort to expand the language capacity within the school system. One of my strongest qualities is my close connection to the immigrant community and various cultures as highlighted in my work experience. My fluency in English comes as a result of an extended period of living and studying in the United States of America. However, I have completed my undergraduate degree and my previous studies in The Democratic Republic of the Congo are proof of fluency in French and other regional languages such as Swahili. I have experience in translating and interpreting in legal, school, community and medical settings. My qualities include excellent concentration and discipline and I will be glad to proof these qualities if I was considered in this particular position .Please do not hesitate to contact me with any question or concern. Sincerely, Jean-Marie Kakule
