#154 How to write a 
business email in English 
part #2
Hi, everybody! I am Georgiana, your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Last week we started learning how to write a formal business email in English. Today we will learn how to close an email with a final comment and greeting. I'll also give you an example of a formal email that you can use in different situations. With a point of view story, you will improve your grammar. Sending a formal or professional email in English can always be challenging, so I decided to dedicate two episodes to this topic. If you haven't yet listened to last week's episode, I invite you to do so before listening to today's lesson. Ok, let's get started! After giving or asking for information, it's time to close with a remark. Here are some examples: 5. Closing remarks: This is how you could respond when you are answering a customer query. "If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me." Use this phrase to let the other person know that you are eager to hear from them soon: "I am looking forward to hearing from you soon."  This way, you encourage the other person to contact you if they need to do so. More closing phrases: "Thank you in advance for your reply / your help." "Please let me know if you have other questions or concerns." "Please don't forget to _______________." "Please get back to me: by Monday/ before Monday / soon. " "I appreciate your prompt reply." "I hope to speak with you / hear from / see you soon." 6. Complimentary Close (followed by your name) We will end our email with a complimentary close. Best Regards, Best wishes, Kind Regards, Regards, Sincerely, Thank you, Enjoy the weekend, Have a good weekend, day, Friday, Have a safe flight, Enjoy your trip, Best wishes, regards, All these can be used interchangeably as a way to pay your respects to the person who is going to read the email. I typically sign my emails with "Best Regards"; however, sometimes I use "Regards" or "Enjoy the weekend." After "Best regards," I add my name. 7. Email Samples Here's an email sample that you can use in different situations: Dear Mr. John,  Thank you for your interest in our services.  With reference to your request regarding a new SIM card for your cell phone, I would like to inform you that it should be made available to you within the next 24 hours.  I would like to inform you that we have already delivered the card to the carrier, and you will receive it during the day. Also, I would really appreciate it if you could respond to this email today confirming your billing information. I am sorry to ask you this on such short notice, but it is in your best interest to do this as soon as possible to avoid any delays. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Best Regards, Tom. Read the transcript here: SpeakEnglishPodcast.com

English Speaking Is Popular And Very International Ep 402
You can find the full web article, media and transcripts for the lesson here: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-speaking-1/International English Speaking Today our English lesson focuses on why the English language is so popular and continues to grow as a popular international language. We see it every year at Adept English, more and more people are choosing to learn English as their second language. So why is the English-speaking world growing? Now I’m not intending to write a complete and authoritative answer to this question in a 10 minute podcast! But I thought I would put some of my reasons for the English language continues to be the go-to second language. The native English-speaking world is not the biggest population in the world. There are plenty of larger populations, for example China and India. So why isn’t Mandarin or Hindi the go-to second language of choice? Adept English is here to help with FREE English lessons and language courses that are unique, modern and deliver results. You can learn to speak English quickly using our specialised brain training. We get straight to the point of how you should learn to speak English. We teach you in a fun and simple way that delivers results. If you want to learn to speak English, our approach to learning through listening will improve your English fluency.🎤 find us at... 🌎 https://adeptenglish.com📺 https://adeptengli.sh/youtube💜 https://adeptengli.sh/facebook🎧 listen to us on... 🎙️ https://adeptengli.sh/spotify🎙️ https://adeptengli.sh/apple🎙️ https://adeptengli.sh/google🎙️ https://adeptengli.sh/amazon🎙️ https://adeptengli.sh/blubrry🎙️ https://adeptengli.sh/rss

055 – Could you kick a robot puppy?
Hello my lovely English learners! Lori here, your teacher from BetterAtEnglish.com. I love technology, so we’re talking about robots today, but not in the way you might expect. A lot of conversations about robots have to do with whether or not a robot or machine could ever develop genuine feelings or emotions. But today we’re going to be thinking about our own emotions and feelings toward robots, particularly empathy. Can we feel empathy toward robots? And if so, why? Links to pre-listening background -- to get the most out of this podcast: Short video of someone “torturing” a robot dinosaur (part of a research experiment). Make sure you watch it with sound. What do you feel as you watch this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAVtkh0mL20 Kate Darling: Why we have an emotional connection to robots (TED talk) https://www.ted.com/talks/kate_darling_why_we_have_an_emotional_connection_to_robots?language=en Yasmin's profile on italki Full transcript of this episode Allow me to introduce you to Kate Darling. She is a super cool researcher who is looking into this very question. I’m going to play you a little bit from the beginning of her TED talk, where she explains how she got into this line of research. The link to the full presentation is in the show notes. It’s as entertaining as it is interesting and thought provoking, so I can wholeheartedly recommend you check out the whole thing. OK, here comes Kate: Kate Darling: “There was a day, about 10 years ago, when I asked a friend to hold a baby dinosaur robot upside down. It was this toy called a Pleo that I had ordered, and I was really excited about it because I've always loved robots. And this one has really cool technical features. It had motors and touch sensors and it had an infrared camera. And one of the things it had was a tilt sensor, so it knew what direction it was facing. And when you held it upside down, it would start to cry. And I thought this was super cool, so I was showing it off to my friend, and I said, "Oh, hold it up by the tail. See what it does." So we're watching the theatrics of this robot struggle and cry out. And after a few seconds, it starts to bother me a little, and I said, "OK, that's enough now. Let's put him back down." And then I pet the robot to make it stop crying. And that was kind of a weird experience for me. For one thing, I wasn't the most maternal person at the time. Although since then I've become a mother, nine months ago, and I've learned that babies also squirm when you hold them upside down. (Laughter) But my response to this robot was also interesting because I knew exactly how this machine worked, and yet I still felt compelled to be kind to it. And that observation sparked a curiosity that I've spent the past decade pursuing. Why did I comfort this robot? And one of the things I discovered was that my treatment of this machine was more than just an awkward moment in my living room, that in a world where we're increasingly integrating robots into our lives, an instinct like that might actually have consequences, because the first thing that I discovered is that it's not just me.” She’s right, it’s not just her. I found a short video on Youtube that shows somebody being really mean to the same type of robot dinosaur that Kate uses in her research. It’s only one minute long, so if you want to pause the podcast and go watch it, feel free. The link is in the show notes. Anyway, when I watched this video myself I felt really uncomfortable, even though I knew it was just a toy robot. I’m not alone; here are some of the Youtube comments. “Why would you do this!!!! It looks so scared, please stop and let me hug it.” “The last part when he was hitting him to the table I heard it crying; that’s so sad.” “I feel bad for him, although I know it’s just a pile of plastic and metal that can’t even think.” Of course, Youtube comments being what they are,
