Academic Emailing in English: Effective and Affective Approaches


This workshop on academic emails focuses on a range of strategies for writing clear, effective and professional emails. The areas we look at include:

  • The expected level of formality in emails 
  • The 'moves' of an effective email
  • Coming across as 'human' in your emails but without losing professionality and impact

These and other issues are dealt with in this 90-minute, informal workshop, investigating the English of emails from both a socio-cultural and a linguistic perspective.


Pre-workshop task


One of the aims of this short workshop is to learn ‘strategies’ for creating emails appropriate to the occasion.

In order to make this as relevant as possible to your own situation, you will be asked to describe your experience of a problematic situation involving an email/exchange of emails.

When you enrol, you will be sent more details on this task.
