50 days to effective e-mails in English – the E-mail Bootcamp

asdf-142411_150

I created 50 Days to Effective E-mails in English – The E-mail Boot-camp to help and support international people in managerial and administrative positions to become more confident, autonomous and proficient in writing effective e-mails in English, in order to make their working days much easier, get better results much quicker and be much more productive.

Are you feeling:

  • Stressed because you don’t know where to start to write that e-mail in English and you need some practical guidance and support?
  • Frustrated because you take too long and waste too much time writing e-mails in English?
  • Insecure because you aren’t able to express yourself as well as you do in your own language?
  • Anxious because you are afraid of making mistakes and not being understood?
  • Ineffective because you don’t get the desired and intended results, information or response?
  • Hesitant  because you don’t know the right tone of voice and phrases to use?
  • Incompetent because you have to rely on others to write e-mails for you or check your work?

Stop right there! No more! I totally understand……and you are not alone. I want to help you to transform this situation. Just you think about what a difference it would make to your life, if you didn’t have to worry and waste time over all the e-mails you have to write in English. Does that feel better already?

Communicating and working in another language

I know very well what it is like to communicate and work in another language – how difficult it can be and how you really want to make a good impression. I am British but based in Rome, Italy, where I have lived and worked for over 30 years now. I am a certified Business English Trainer and author and have been teaching Business English to thousands of people in national and international companies all over Italy for years now; I have also had wonderful opportunities to teach Business writing for the World Food Programme in places like Tanzania and Eritrea. And everywhere I have been, I have always listened very carefully to everybody’s stories – their difficulties and their needs…so I can confidently tell you that it’s not just you feeling this way.

mail-96870_150You know until not very long ago, I was in your very same situation. Every day I write many e-mails to my clients and students and, obviously, when I can, I write in English. However, there are often times when I have to write in Italian and, of course, just like you, I used to get very frustrated. Just like you, I was afraid of making big mistakes, of people laughing at me, of making a bad impression with my clients or colleagues. It stressed me because I knew how much longer it would take for me to write in Italian than in English and I  just wanted to be able to write a few lines, send the e-mail quickly and then continue doing all the other things I had to do. However, that blank page just seemed to look back at me for ages before I slowly and hesitantly started writing.

It would take time to look for a good way to open the e-mail, and then it would take time to search for a particular phrase Italians use to explain this and then another one to explain that and then….what was that lovely formal standard closing phrase? Ah, yes,  “Colgo l’occasione per porre i miei più distinti saluti” – but then I would worry that maybe it was too formal and so it would take time to look for something more informal..but then I would get full of doubts and think that maybe the first phrase was in fact ok…or was it? So many doubts.

 And… then I got worried that the grammar was wrong or I had put a feminine ending on a masculine word or vice versa (still a big problem for me in speaking and writing Italian even after all these years!) and……… aaaaaaah! It would just take too long and then after all that, I would still have to find someone to check it for me before I sent it – and maybe nobody was available in that moment and I couldn’t send it immediately and…..I felt so incompetent and frustrated. Aaaah…and aaaah again!  Yes, I do know exactly how you feel. I do…I really do!

Does this all sound familiar to you? Well, let me tell you what I did to transform the situation for me…

I developed a system for myself in Italian that instantly gave me fantastic results. Writing suddenly became less stressful and I immediately became more confident and less anxious about making mistakes and not being understood!

There was one time that I felt particularly satisfied with myself and my system….

I was having some problems with a few parents of a little group I taught, at a nursery school, once a week. I had given them the option of paying in installments but, unfortunately, they weren’t respecting the deadlines. I had to write them an e-mail requesting payment – not the easiest of e-mails to write in any language. I kept postponing the moment to write because, to be honest, just the idea of writing this e-mail stressed me – it had to be in Italian!

Finally, I decided I couldn’t let it go on any longer and forced myself to sit down to write the e-mail. I followed the system I had developed, I found the right tone of voice for the situation, I carefully checked it over myself, then I hit the send button and sat back with a sense of satisfaction and a sigh of relief. Within two days all of the parents had paid me and sent their apologies. I obtained the results I wanted!

problem-67054_150I took the system I had developed for myself, in Italian, and created 50 Days to Effective E-mails in English – the E-mail Boot-camp so that you too, could stop being so anxious and afraid of making mistakes.

I want to give you everything you need to stop you from feeling so stressed and frustrated when you have to write e-mails in English, so that your work becomes easier. I want to take you by the hand and make writing e-mails in English just seem like child’s play!
