Let’s talk about #WRITING!
Business letters and e-mails are…
📌 Polite: This means they use slightly more formal/professional English. Do not use slang.
Phrasal verbs and idioms are OK only in e-mails to business associates who you know well and have a friendly relationship with.
📌Concise: This means they focus on the essential information and they don’t include lots of extra details or long explanations that are not very relevant.
If you need to write a letter or e-mail, you can follow this structure:
– Salutation to open the letter
– Reference to any recent contact
– Expresses your reason for writing
📧 DETAILS– more information that is relevant to the letter’s purpose.
– Good/bad news
– Brief explanations
– Next action
– Deadlines or time limits
– Contact information (if necessary)
