Writing e-mails is the most widely used form of communication in the business world today. Because it’s still a relatively new form of communication, basic social conventions for writing and responding to e-mails are still being worked out…

…and miscommunication can easily occur when people have different expectations about the e-mails that they send and receive, especially if they are from different cultures.

So how do you put together clearly written, professional e-mails that get your point across in an effective manner?

You’ll receive tips and terms to use on the job to increase your confidence when corresponding with business associates around the globe so that you get it right – every time:

  • How can you prevent your e-mail from ending up in Deleted Files?
  • When is sending just a brief message okay?
  • When is it better to send a longer, more professional-sounding e-mail?
  • How should you decide what style of writing works for each task/client?
  • How should you respond when you don’t understand the e-mails you’re receiving?
  • Free proofreading offered to all course participants
