Hello Sales Team,

I’ve got an idea for next week – see the attached file. I’d like to hear what you think about my suggestion.
I think Hatem and Patricia may be interested, so I’ve copied them in too. Let’s talk more at the meeting next week.

Regards, Samir




Good Exercise!

Hello sir
In task 2 : "Dear Mr Prabang, As we agreed, I am sending the contract as an attachment
. It is a PDF file. Please let me know if you have any queries. Yours, Andrew Mortimer"

In that sentence, can I use this word "questions" istead of " queries " ?
And I have another question when you say link address like this http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/ielts-interview-skills/dont-ge...
how do you pronounce "//"," / " and "- "in English?

These exercises help me a lot!

Hello jojoantony9567,

I think this is a good place to start. Work your way through our English for Emails series and I think you'll find it very helpful. It's also a good idea to improve your language related to various aspects of business and to do this you might take a look at our section on English for Business, and especially the series called You're Hired.


Best wishes,
