Hi to You All,

I am teaching English in Germany and a collegue found this in our book. I corrected him that this does not sound right to me or at least I would not teach this as good job application jargon. What do you all think?

"I am writing to you about the advertisement from April 21st in the Cambridge Weekly."

It would be nice to hear US and British opinions. I speak US English.

Thank you!

<< Moderator note.
This thread began with two questions and an unhelpful title.
It has now been split into two threads with relevant titles.
Posts that address neither topic have been deleted -the thread is not about alternative terminology for "CV" and it is most definitely NOT about how to represent diacritical marks in this forum.

    "I am writing to you about the advertisement from April 21st in the Cambridge Weekly." No, it should be "of the" and the time clause would be the final element:

    "I am writing to you about the advertisement in the Cambridge Weekly of the 21st April."

    "I am sending you the attached CV in response to your advertisement in the Cambridge Weekly of April 21st" seems to touch all the bases.
