寫英文email一直犯錯?那你需要這個單元。還有,家裡有養兔子的人注意了,你有訓練你家的兔子做這件事嗎?

兔子拆信刀這點子妙,我也要訓練我家阿毛們做這事。
咦,真的好像每一隻兔子都會拆信,你家的兔子訓練過了嗎?
快點開始啊,不要白白浪費他們的天份。
(這隻兔子體格壯碩,跟我家黑皮一樣,兩隻也都是賓士頭)
試過了,我家阿毛們抵死不從。
這些年跟同胞們通英文email,很難看到一封完全書寫正確的版本,而且無論是簡單的問候信函、商業書信或是正式的信件,隨便看都可以找出十幾個錯誤咧。後來想想,大家email寫不好可能是因為很少練習,或許也缺乏相關的模板句可以套用。部落格上有英文書信的單元,大家可以下載。但今天要跟大家分享英文email與正式書信的差異點與要訣。(請迅速從兔子與貓咪的世界抽離,感謝大家)。

記得以前在外商公司上班的時候,看見台灣主管或同事寫的信,真的每看一次就會受到驚嚇一次,因為各種錯誤都有,有些內容還令人匪夷所思。這些錯誤不外乎是英文文法問題介係詞錯用還有很多中式英文。那時候不好意思指正同事或老闆的錯誤,只能試圖以正確的英文回信來暗示提點,無奈好像沒多大效用。今天教練整理了一份英文email的講義給大家參考,並且附上許多實用的模板句。

印象中職場最常見之英文Email錯誤句子範例

1. We need to discuss about the plan in tomorrow's meeting.😌

2. This workshop is very important. I need everyone to stand by tomorrow. 😓

3. Can you double confirm this for me? Thank you. 😭

4. Kindly help to send out the confirmation tomorrow. 😩

5. Please help to solve the problem. We cannot provide the cause because we operate inconvenient. Thank you.  😰


正確答案列於本文最下方↓。

還有每次去醫院看醫生的時候,有機會的話都會偷看醫生寫的英文醫囑,發現大多數的醫生也經常寫錯,這些以前上寫作課的時候都有討論過。我們要好好學習一個語文,最好的方式是不要背單字,要記得熟記句子,再來就是要有耐性,學英文無法速成,尤其是閱讀寫作,需要多花時間跟它耗,但不要怕,只要有心,絕對能學得好。

  5. Hi Coach,
    Good to read this column, hope sorrows buried and keep life going on.
    Though practices can help producing right sentences, I found something funny that the real challenges were those occasions or scenarios I had to explain in an indirect way not offending my boss but still deliver right messages to my contacts. That's really hard, but really improve my skills over last few years...ha ha...

    1. Hi Joe,
      Thanks for dropping by. I hope you find this post useful.
      You're right, words can often lead to miscommunication and the older we get, the more we try to conceal what we're really trying to say (ever so subtly) in order not to offend people, especially our bosses. So we're not just learning how to write correctly in English, but also trying to get problems solved without getting us into more trouble.
