    Dear Sir,

    I came to know that there is an opportunity to have our higher studies in various part of the country. I am writing this on behalf of my mother, who was selected as a MRP (Master Resource Person) for British council organisation. She has done her MA (Eng) in the year 1992 and now she is working as a teacher for one of the higher primary govt. school in India. She is much interested to join with British council and also much interested to learn more and more.

    Kindly do let me know if she's eligible to take up this opportunity to be a part of British Council. Aslo please let me know the procedures after filling up the form and sending it to you. In case if she is selected for this, whether all the facilities like accommodation, food etc will be provided by the British Council or self. Please do let know about this.

    Also, I have done my graduation through Arts and my major subject was English. Kindly do let me know, whether even I can take up this opportunity and be a master of all trades.
