Dear Recruitment Manager,
I am please to present my resume to you for the position of English Lecturer, in response to your advertisement. I believe my broad-based linguistic knowledge and being a dedicated bilingual educator (English + Arabic) make me a qualified candidate for the position.
15 years of international teaching experience, committed me to providing students with a dynamic and interesting learning environment in which they can grow and develop. I seek to encourage students to enjoy extra-curricular activities and study groups, which I believe instils them with a self-directed lifelong learning. As a result, I have developed excellent communication, leadership, organisational and time management skills.

Enclosed is a resume that provides more detail about my background. I am excited by an opportunity such as the one you advertised and I believe I would be more creative and energetic asset to your college. Thanks.
