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.

If I send an email asking for help, I would include few topics. First, write down a subject. Subject is important to convey what I want to convey the most. Second, write down introduction about us. by doing so, recipients will understand what we are doing at a company. After I finish the introduction, I will tell them about asking for help and explain why we would like to ask them. Third, tell the date or ask the date when it would be convenient to have a meeting. Last, don’t forget to express gratitude for them. it is important to tell the asking for help. I believe most important thing when asking for help is to respect them and tell them not to be rude. This is the most basic of basics.

In my view, there are some important points that we shouldn't forget when we write an email to request for help. First of all, we should use a good and understandable structure. Then we should write down politely and we should carefully choose the words and phrases which are very important for interpreting our requests. Next, we should know the situation of people and our request must preferably be in a favour of them. Finally, using correct date, grammatical points, and not forgetting the apreciate part are another tips that we should be considered about them. Regards, Tayyebi

I think that emails that ask for help should include their name, why they're in trouble, who to ask, what they want help with, and how they want help. In addition, it is very important to write the details of the content. And don't forget to thank you. I think it is important to write in a precise and concise manner when communicating your thoughts by email. And then review it for mistakes. I also make an e-mail by carefully determining the wording and the person to send. For example, when writing an email, be careful about using honorifics for teacher and superiors. Please tell me your idea about how to write an email that ask for help.

When we send the emails, we have to be careful about the construction of the text. The email written above is a mix of facts and what you want to convey, so it is hard to read. I think I should first write down what you want to tell most. In addition, I think the paragraph in the text of it should be changed. If compositions aren't divided into the paragraph, it's difficult for the person who receives the email to understand the contents of them. Correcting the form of typing an email will help you to learn good manners and build good relationships with other people.

If I email for help, there are a few things I should include. First, don't forget the subject. Create it so that you can understand it at a glance. At the beginning of the writings such as "I'm indebted to you" are omitted. Then write the message. And avoid ambiguous expressions in the text. Then write it concretely and concisely. Finally, after writing the closing words, enter your company, phone number, and your signature to complete the email. Anyway, it is important to write your emails concisely and clearly.

I think when I need some help, I would include explanation about what I'm doing and how effort that help would make. Because people help me would like to know whole things and they will be motivated by telling how their help would effect. And I also include my goal. That make us predict what to do for short helping each other. I think that's so simple, so we usually miss it that's the most important.
