Hi Lynn,

Please let me know how to write you questions and how to get quick response from you. I want to learn official english.

Lynn Gaertner-Johnston

Hello, PH. I am not a good source for quick responses to your questions. My focus is on teaching business writing in U.S. and Canadian companies.

The best way to learn "official English" may be to take a class in your country. I do not offer programs in English as a second language.

I wish you much success.

A small section of project must be considered to us so that they can compare quality/price with their current in-house capacity.I tried to get at least one reply, but failed.Kindly assist me with your valuable suggestions.
My sincere thanks for your time.
Awaiting for your comments.

Hello, Priyanka. I suggest that you ask your coworkers for pieces of writing that have been successful. It is a good idea to copy what works for others in your position.

You can also search this blog for the kind of sample you are looking for. Is is a sales letter? Is it a letter of introduction?

I offer online classes, which you can attend. I do not know which country you work in, so I am not sure whether the time of the classes would be reasonable for you. However, you can always learn about upcoming classes at http://www.syntaxtraining.com/upcomingclasses.html

Good luck!

Lynn

Hi Lynn,

Thank you for the tips. I have a question here which I hope you can help me to answer.

I teach English for the accounting & finance staffs in my office. The final goal is actually for them to be able to correspondence well using emails; yet, the problems aroused as they have a very basic English. In the end, I decided to combine teaching general English with a few extra of business English vocabulary in each meetings but i still finds difficulties in choosing the materials to discuss in class. Can you help me to solve this problems? Suggestion or advise maybe? I'd really appreciate it! :)

Lynn Gaertner-Johnston

Hi, Mei. I suggest that you find someone local who is a true expert in business English. Such an individual would be better able to create appropriate lessons and find materials for the accounting and finance staff.

Lynn
