To whom it may Concern,
I am writing this letter to attest to Paul’s skills in language and public relations. In the four years I have known him, I have been consistently impressed with his ability not only to negotiate complex ideas in other languages, but also to relate these things in a personable, conscientious fashion. His manner in these cases is both professional and personal, two qualities which I find particularly valuable in a professional setting. He has personally helped me in professional negotiation for everything from train tickets to contract information, and I have always been able to count on him.
I first met Paul in school, where he was a student at the university at which I taught. He was well-known to most of the westerners in town, who could call from different universities to ask for his help. Sometimes this help involved translation of professional documents, and sometimes it involved personal help in making phone calls. Many of these westerners continue to call him today, even though they live quite far away from him, because they have come to trust him very much. From this foundation in public relations Paul has found positions in various professional capacities and has been highly-valued in each place. He is generally the sort of employee a company finds most valuable in its dealings with both foreign and domestic clients. He puts people at their ease with his language ability and manner, both of which communicate to people that they can relax and simply communicate.
I would highly recommend Paul as an employee. His experience and manner are rare and very valuable.
At the request of Mr. Xizhen Chen, my former student in the Department of Computer Science, Beijing Univ. of Sciences, I am glad to write this letter furnishing my evaluation of his academic aptitude for your reference. Mr. Chen is interested in your graduate program in Computer Science.
I came to know him in September 1987 when Mr. Chen enrolled in my class on FORTRAN IV Programming, a three semesters' course. In the class he was one of the most outstanding students. At the semester final he earned a high grade of 81, which should be "A" according to our grading system. I also found him good at other studies.
After the class, he had personal talks with me several times. He indicated a great interest in computer hardware, In my opinion, Mr. Chen has a potential in Computer Science, which can be further developed.
In view of his previous achievements in this College, I am firmly convinced that Mr. Chen will make a successful graduate student. Your favorable consideration of his admission will be highly appreciated.
This letter is to serve as my recommendation for Mr. Yang Jiangjin. He came to my course The Introduction of Sociology with a lot of interest and motivation, completed approximately 54 hours of work directly related to Sociology and proved himself to be an excellent student. He was always present at all my courses, stayed focused and concentrated during the lessons and listened attentively.
In my class, Mr. Yang Jiangjin tended to think outside the box and displayed his critical thinking skills. We often discussed some hot topics like political reform, human right, sustainable development and so on, he not only showed concern for these issues but also liked challenging the consensus and expressing his own opinion, he knew how to make use of information and he was able to deduce conclusions logically from what he had already known. In particular, it came to my notice that he possessed a talent for getting the whole class actively participated in a heated discussion or debate.
I was deeply impressed by his quick absorption of new knowledge and strong self-study ability. For beginners in sociology, I gave them an extensive reading list of 15 books. Although it is not compulsory, with a craving for new knowledge, he read almost all of these reference books and always came up with some brilliant ideas after reading. His devotion and enthusiasm, together with his diligence, enable him to stand out in theclass.Moreover, because of his intense interest in Sociology, I encourage him to continue to learn more aboutresearch methodology to acquire sufficient knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods. Then he selected Applied Statistics and Business Research to study in Business School. One area he could continue to work on is creating more opportunities to apply that knowledge to practice.
I am deeply convinced that Mr. Yang Jiangjin’s determination and outstanding performance have qualified him to pursue further study as a postgraduate student in your university. If you have any further questions regarding this recommendation, please feel free to contact me.
