Responding to news

Sorry to hear about Glad to hear that youre all well Good luck with Hope you feel better soon

This is the most important part. Here we talk about the main subject and expand with details about the reason of writing the email. If we talk about two different things it is best to write another paragraph. Intenten ordenar sus ideas en el cuerpo principal para que puedan desarrollar un patron lgico para ordenar sus ideas. Cuando tienen mas de una idea podran empezar con : First, I wanted to let you know Esto ayuda a que el lector pueda entenderlo mejor.

Then if you need to ask for something I suggest the following expressions: Asking for something

Can you please? Is it ok if you ? I want to Would you mind ? I was wondering if


Closing expressions

Anyway, / Well thats all for now Hope to hear from you soon / Looking forward to hearing from you soon Send my regards (love) to Take care / Best wishes / Regards / (Lots of) love from Sincerely, Stay in touch / Keep in touch Bye for now See you

At the end of every email, we use ending expressions like

Best regards, Kind regards, Yours sincerely, Yours faithfully,

For informal e-mails:

Best, or Regards, or Cheers,

For formal e-mails:

Kind regards, or Respectfully, or Sincerely,

Best regards" (or just "Br") is, in my experience, extremely common in business emails, and a safe choice for many situations. "Best wishes," is also a common alternative that falls into this category.

For informal situations or when messaging friends, I'd probably go with something lighter, such as:

Take care,
