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




I'm on the Understanding IELTS MOOC and this website was suggested in Week 4. It is a very useful site. Thank you very much for being on the web.

Hello Victor Rivera,

Thanks very much for your message and letting us know how you got here, and, of course, welcome! Please let us know if you have any questions.

I suppose that you know about TakeIELTS. If not, I'd recommend it as another good general resource for IELTS preparation.

I would thank you for this wonderful course
The tasks are fairly easy for me

Good exercise.

Although it is easy to solve, it is very useful for me as I am a beginner to learn about email.
Thanks for all who prepare these tasks.

This course is easy for me.
