    If I walked around the Bow Bells saying “Donald Duck” would I be fined for swearing?

    im from boston and some of the words are pronounced the same as cockney words like dinner we also say “dinna”. I love the British accent!

    I’m brazillian, and since I started reading stories by Agatha Christie, I wondered how would be this “cockney” accent, as the translations always destroy these kinds of linguistic identity. And now I found by accident a really good explanation about it! Thumbs up man. Liked it very much.

    You have understood exactly. And your examples are great.
    Note Robin Hood for good is already used.
    Many things have set phrases and I would not suggest using too many non standard ones together.
    It is through this invention that new standard phrases come into existence when a new rhyming phrase becomes popular.
    Note Robin Hood for good is already used.

    So, anything that rhymes would work? There aren’t set words for certain words?
    Would this work?

    “Have a robin hood day” or “Have a robin hood tina fey” ?

    This is a great video. However, since we are correcting errors here, it is important to correct all the errors found in the email. For example, we have “In future” which should be “In the future”.
    I agree with this video presentation because it explains email mechanics, style and tone. When communicating especially electronically, it is important to set the tone of communication so as to get the desired feeling that we want the words to create.
    I always make sure I check for errors before I send

    its very useful video thanks for sharing

    I totally agree. For one, I think email writing also has its basics. Gotta review my email writing.

  28. 0

    Don’t hit ‘send’ just yet. You have a missing article to insert. It should read “in THE future”. Beyond that, well done. Clean, simple content and narrated slowly for ESL learners.

    Very good way to make e-mail users aware of how critical it is to construct and review e-mails when communicating. Electronic information sharing is often misused due to lack of face-to-face interaction. As outlined in the ESL Business Writing Video, reviewing, identifying the mechanics, setting the tone and creating proper style are equally important when writing an e-mail or any form of communication.

    This video is very useful to me. Unfortunately, I encounter this issue on a regular basis. A major portion of my daily activities involves communication via email. By using these tips and methods, you should be able to more effectively communicate with others in a clear and concise manner.

    I’m really happy to see these lessons are out there. It is very important to take care when writing e-mail, especially to your colleagues. Your peers and supervisors in your office will view you by your ability to communicate by writing. As my high school English teacher once said, “Spelling always counts!” And so do style and mechanics. Especially in the business world!

    This video shows the importance to keep messages simple and easy to understand. You don’t want to communicate just communicate. Sending messages that are meaningful to team members and stakeholders that are clear and concise will take the sender of the information a long way. Sending meaningful messages that can be understood is to be able to communicate the message. Messages that are grammatically incorrect, reduces the sender’s credibility.

    This video teaches a lot of important things about writing business emails. Style is very important. Thanks for posting this video.

    I can’t thank you enough for posting this video. E-mail is definitely an important communication tool not only for project managers but for EVERYONE. Having a clear and concise e-mail demonstrates:

    • comprehension of subject matter(s)
    • understanding of grammatical rules

    Overall, proofreading and editing should be ones bestfriend when sending an e-mail. Without these two tools your e-mail is bound to be misunderstood.

    PMAN 638 – Tim. This video is very informative. It’s strange how most organizations do not off training on email and so one would never know these basic tips. The information shared on the importance of the Subject line accuracy, impact of the greetings and good grammer are solid.
