There are a couple of important things about this first section of your speech that you should know. First and foremost, your intro must be short. In fact, as I told you in the first paragraph of this post, every wedding toast must be short. The wedding speeches for father of bride should last for about five minutes. Given the fact that the first and the last part of a composition must be much shorter than the main (middle) part, it follows that both the intro and the ending of such an oration must have one or two paragraphs each. This means that you can’t afford to include too many ideas in your toast’s opening. In other words, from the topics that will be suggested in the following paragraphs of this post, you should choose only the ones that you like and that you think that are most suitable for your oration.

You should always make every effort to find a contact name to use in your letter. It leaves a good impression on the hiring manager if you have taken the time to use their name, especially if you needed to work a little to find it. If this information was not provided in the job announcement and you cannot find it on the company’s web site, then it is a good idea to call the company, ask to be forwarded to their Human Resources department (if they have one), explain that you will be applying for a job there, and ask for the name of their hiring manager.
Romanian has two diphthongs: /e̯a/ and /o̯a/ . As a result of their origin (diphthongization of mid vowels under stress), they appear only in stressed syllables  and make morphological alternations with the mid vowels /e/ and /o/ . To native speakers, they sound very similar to /ja/ and /wa/ respectively.  There are no perfect minimal pairs to contrast /o̯a/ and /wa/ ,  and because /o̯a/ doesn't appear in the final syllable of a prosodic word, there are no monosyllabic words with /o̯a/ ; exceptions might include voal ('veil') and trotuar ('sidewalk'), though Ioana Chițoran argues  that these are best treated as containing glide-vowel sequences rather than diphthongs. In addition to these, the semivowels /j/ and /w/ can be combined (either before, after, or both) with most vowels, while this arguably  forms additional diphthongs and triphthongs , only /e̯a/ and /o̯a/ can follow an obstruent-liquid cluster such as in broască ('frog') and dreagă ('to mend').  implying that /j/ and /w/ are restricted to the syllable boundary and therefore, strictly speaking, do not form diphthongs.
