It’s safe to say, we probably text or email more than we talk face-to-face. In fact, I would say most of my communication (whether with friends, family or co-workers) is done online.
Test your knowledge of writing formal and informal emails:
1) When do you usually write I look forward to hearing from you ?
2) What is the difference between Ms Kellaway and Mrs Kellaway?
3) What is rgds an abbreviation of?
4) What is FYI an abbreviation of?
5) When do we usually use Yours sincerely and Yours faithfully?
6) Which of these are correct forms of address to someone you don’t know?
Hey Lucy, Dear Mrs Kellaway, Hi Lucy, Dear Lucy Kellaway, Dear Mrs Kellaway, Dear Sirs, Dear Sir/Madam
7) Look at the closings below. Which of these are suitable for an email to professional contact you don’t know and a friend, colleague:
Best regards, Thank you for your patience, Have a great weekend, Feel free to call me, Best wishes
