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

well done

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
how do you pronounce "//"," / " and "- "in English?

Hi XuMinHa,

Yes, you could say 'questions' instead of 'queries' and it would be fine and mean the same thing. '/' is pronounced 'slash', '//' is 'double slash' and '-' is 'dash' or 'hyphen'.

All the best,

"/" called slash
