Banish Tired Phrases and Embrace Fresh Expressions

Outdated language can make our communication seem old-fashioned.

Want to add some energy to your English emails?

Use clear, simple words that everyone can understand easily.

Here are some examples of how to update those old business phrases:

  • Instead of: “In response to your inquiry, I am writing to inform you that …,” try: “Thank you for your message. I’m happy to let you know that …
  • Instead of: “Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions,” say: “Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
  • Instead of: “I would be grateful if you could send me the report by the end of the day,” go for: “Can you send me the report by the end of the day, please?
  • Instead of: “Enclosed, please find the document you requested,” write: “I’ve attached the document you asked for.”

Don’t you think these phrases sound a lot fresher?

Embrace these tips and infuse a breath of fresh air into your business communication.
