So you’re working on an important text that you’d like to send out via email. But, before you press that send button, stop – and proofread.
- Read every sentence out loud.
- Reread what you’ve just written at least twice.
- Print your text out and read it on paper (you’ll be surprised how that can help you see mistakes better).
- Wait five minutes before you reread your text.
- Ask someone else to read it, too.
