We hope you’re all well!
Which is the best way for us to greet you: “Hello, students!”, “Hi, students!” or “Dear students”?
Whether you’re writing to friends, colleagues or to a potential business partner, your main goal is to get your message across, in other words, to ensure the recipient understands you.
If you use improper or incorrect language and continuously make mistakes in your emails, you might fail to make yourself understood and fail to make a good impression on the reader.
We often receive from students questions about how to begin and end an email in English. Today we will quickly summarise some options.
The Beginning of an Email
To a Friend or Acquaintance

The End of an Email

We hope you find these expressions useful. Keep learning and writing: practice makes perfect!
