Scenarios for Informal Email by Johanna Lim Ziyun, Kok Li Ying and Lok Yang Teng

Scenarios:
1) Persuade her cousin to go to boarding school in Switzerland instead of the other one in Canada. 
2) Persuade her cousin to take more public transport instead of taking cars as cars produce carbon monoxide and pollutes the environment. 
3) Persuade her cousin to buy you the latest fitness machine.

The scenario that we have chosen is:
 Persuade her cousin to go to boarding school in Switzerland instead of the other one in Canada. 

Explain the scenario
-My relative is having problems in choosing schools after her results were out. She has asked me for opinions on which school to choose.
-Each school has its pros and cons but I want her to go to the boarding school in Switzerland. 
-She is in sixes and sevens and is trying her very best to make a right decision. 

Purpose
To persuade her to come to the boarding school as the boarding school has all the facilities that she wants and she would be able to showcase her talent in that school. It will enlighten and brighten her future. 

Audience
The audience is her cousin, 16 years old, deciding which school she needs to go to as her O-level results have just released and she has passed with flying colours. 

Context
Her cousin has exceptional results and is in sixes and sevens on which school to join. She has scored the highest in her country. She has consulted me, a very experienced student on which school to join. 
I gave her my opinion on the Switzerland boarding school as the school focuses on the subject that she likes and she will be able to enjoy herself, and at the same time, study. It is killing two birds with one stone.
Time: Over the days
Date: Until 24 July (that is when the registration ends)
Environment: School

Tone and Register
The tone is persuasive and the register is informal.
