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

Hello Nishi_g,

I'm afraid that's not a service we offer here. In addition, our House Rules prohibit the sharing of the kind of personal information you'd need to do that. I'm sure you can find something by doing an internet search for something like 'learn English speaking' or 'English language exchange'.

Good luck!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Dear LearnEnglish Team
What about articles in Subject headings? Should we omit them?
Yours sincerely

Hello Dina,

I don't think there is a fixed rule for such things. If you have a particular subject in mind we can take a look and see how it sounds, but I don't thin there is a single rule.


Best wishes,
