    Dear Ayesha Gamiet,

    A friend from the School of Traditional Arts gave me your name. I would like to learn the Islimi technique and she warmly suggested you.
    Could you please let me know if you have arranged for any courses in the next few months, that I could join?
    Thank you in advance,
