Dear Ms Wong

Mr John LEE Kwok Keung

I have received your letter of requesting a reference for Mr Lee.

I have known Mr Lee since October which was when he took one of my courses. I can confidently recommend Mr Lee to you without the slightest hesitation. He is mature, intelligent, dependable, well-liked and shows initiative. His attitude to work is enthusiastic and helpful and he is efficient and self-motivated. Although he sometimes has problems with punctuality, his overall performance is very good. His ability to analyse information and work in a team environment and his information technology and language skills have made him an asset to our department.

In conclusion I have no reservations in recommending Mr Lee for this position. We wish him good luck in his new career.

Yours sincerely


Dr Chan Wai Hung
Assistant Professor
Department of Engineering
