When I send an email for help, I include clear subject. It makes sentence easy to read, so the person who recieve an email can understand easier. Subject plays an important role in email. Also, I include polite language. It is for help that the reason I send an email, so I must use polite language. If I don't use it, our relationship get worse. Next time, I will not be helped anyone. There are many other things I include in an email for help. But I'm especially careful subject and polite language.

I think that I should include the things I want to tell someone exactly. There are two reasons. Firstly, if I were a person who receive an email, I would like to know details. Therefore, when I send an email, I will include what I want them to do. Secondly, it is a rude not to include what I want them to help exactly. I think whenever someone help me, I must act politely. So, it is important not abstract but properly. From two reasons, I should tell someone the things exactly when I send an email.

First, I think that I should include brief subject when I send an email asking for help. It is important to show content clearly. By doing so, it will not take much time to understand the content of email, and recipient can read email comfortably. Also, I think that recipient can easy to reply. Second, not forcing to help is important. I’m in a position to ask for help, not in a position to force to help. Therefore, I think that it is important to ask recipient about the date and place for the meeting. I should adjust to recipient’s schedule.

If I send an e-mail asking for help, I would make a clear title first. Simple title is important to easy to knowing detail. If a title is clearly, mail recipient can easy to understand and reply. The next is introduce and define my details. Doing it like that, mail recipient can accept me. The most important point is the body of mail. My idea is to write it briefly to reach the detail. As I am doing request, so I should use soft accents. We must not use the tone of command by mistake either. It is important that I do not forget the words of thanks if a reply comes.

I have two things that we should include in an email asking for help. First, we should enter subject. When we enter subject, we must be contained in short sentences. Also, we must be written so that it can be easily understood to the other person. If we can't do this, it may be misunderstood by person receiving email. Seconds, we must be careful about wording. Don't let the other person feel uncomfortable. Especially, we should careful about our attitude toward superior.If we take a rude attitude, a person receiving email don't help us. It is important to write with polite language. I believe if we can do these things, a person receiving email will help me.

I wish if I could include a part of a lyric in an email asking for help. For instance, "Help! I need somebody Help! Not just anybody Help! You know I need someone Help!" "Now I see, it's You I need. And with Your help. Deny myself and put my hand in Yours."

First of all, If you ask for help, you should explain what you want to order briefly and concreatly. For instance, it's content, plan from now on or deadline day. And Next it's more good to explain why need your help. Because I think it's meaningful to explain why ask you. So when then, we should write down politely and we should carefully choose the words and phrases which are very important for interpreting our requests. In addition, Ay the end,Don't forget to write thank you.

I think we should include a few important things in an e-mail for asking help. It is concrete dates and simple explanation about the feature of the product. If we give a few candidate of dates, be easy to reply for them. Also, if we give them information about the product before meeting, they can take more time to think about the product for more better idea.
