The Request

Received on 26 March 2015

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am a final year student at the University of Warsaw  and I am searching for British Council Annual Reports from years 2000 – 2006, as these may contain necessary information I need for my diploma thesis. Unfortunately, the aforementioned reports are not available to download from the British Council`s web page or other Internet archives.

I would be very grateful if you could provide me with the information as to where I can find the reports or, if it is possible, send me the pdf. files of these documents.
