Dear [Recipients Name],

I do not think I can thank you enough as you have written such a glowing recommendation for my application to the University. You have always been an inspiration to me, and I have undertaken many of my studies because of the work you had done with me. You were always my favorite teacher, and I feel privileged that you have supported my application. I know any recommendation endorsed with your name will only increase my chances of being accepted at the university. I say thanks again although I am aware it is not enough in itself, so I will endeavor to do your recommendation justice.
