Learn how to write a thank-you email.

Do the preparation task first. Then read the text and tips and do the exercises.

Reading text


  1. Start with Hi if it is an informal email to someone you know.
  2. The email can have three main paragraphs:
    • the reason for writing (= to say thank you)
    • the main point (= more details or examples)
    • a wish or offer for the future.
  3. Use emojis (e.g. smiley) or emoticons (e.g. :) ) to show you’re joking.
  4. You can say See you soon / See you next year if you hope to meet again.
  5. Use a closing phrase like Keep in touch, Write soon, Speak soon or Take care.

Hi hamby

I just wanted to write and say thank you for having me a great vacation in your beautiful house. I really appreciate your attitude with a stranger guess who you don't know. As you know, I lose my baggage in airport and I feel very nervous because this is the first time I come to Brazil. Luckily, I met you and you invited me stay at your house. It's a very nice house with fresh air, sunny and many flowers. I feel really comfort here.

Take care
