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.

Find out what works best for you.
