How to write clear and effective business emails

I am so excited to finally reveal our brand-new audio courses!

As many of you will know, we have a wide range of courses on our website, from Business English (including meetings, negotiations, presentations) to idioms, phrasal verbs and many more.

Well, now, you can listen to these courses! Whether you want to follow along on the computer or learn English on the move (in your car, as you walk the dog, even as you’re grocery shopping) it’s up to you and it’s never been easier.

The first course we have launched is about Writing Emails.

In season 1 you will learn how to write the perfect email – including specific language points (including prepositions, linking words, relative clauses), as well as tone and register and vocabulary. In addition to this, you will learn how to give information, ask for information and give news – hugely important things to know before sending emails.

In season 2 you will learn when and how to speak formally and informally. In addition, you will discover a range of business slang, phrasal verbs and prepositions. You’ll also learn a range of common business email mistakes, giving you an inside look into problems even native speakers still make. You’ll no longer be confused about the difference between fetch and bring, borrow and lend, along with many more.

By the end of the course, I want you to feel able and energised to communicate with people through the written word. I’m a firm believer in practice making perfect and, in this course, you will have a lot of opportunity to practice.

The two seasons of Writing Emails are available on the Intrepid English website. Just click on the links below. You’ll find the episodes, as well as worksheets including key information and transcripts.

Interview with Alyssa Ordu

Hello, and welcome to the Intrepid English podcast. My name is Lorraine, and today, I have a conversation for you. My friend Alyssa is a Diversity and Inclusion Consultant in London. And when I told Alyssa that we were creating a diversity and inclusion course, in the intrepid English Academy, we had a lovely conversation about why diversity and inclusion are so important. I asked her to join me on this podcast as an expert in this field, to break down these big topics so that our English learners and the listeners of this podcast can understand a little bit about what diversity and inclusion are, why they’re so important, and give you a little bit of language that you can use to increase your awareness and broaden your horizons in these essential areas.
