  • Back to San Francisco that might change

  • This number one be direct again American people are very relaxed when I was dealing a lot with British people

  • I noticed that their email would be like that but the whole point can be minimized to two or three sentences your goal is to

  • Talk about what you want to talk in two or three sentences in an email and again be relaxed

  • Relax

  • It doesn't matter if you ask how are you or are you doing people?

  • Don't really do that in emails and I was surprised with my investor is fly to me

  • They say hey marina when I first saw this I'm like really to use hey in a formal email

  • But it turns out that yes, Americans are so relaxed they even use hey informal emails. They use a lot of contractions

  • they use of a lot of idioms self be prepared to write like an American and

  • Another advice have a really clear call to action. This is called CTA. What are you asking for?

  • What is the purpose of this email make sure that the person gets it right away when you are writing in American English?

  • Make sure you're using active voice instead of using passive voice passive voice is when I say

  • Baybridge was built by an American government. This is a phrase

  • I would use if I'm doing a tour of San Francisco

  • But if I'm writing an email I would use active voice the American government

  • Instructed the builders to build the bay bridge for example tip number three and this can relate to your

  • Spoken English as well, please please. Please do not over explain. Hey, don't explain it

  • Just clarify if you feel that you're asking a question

  • don't give people answers just ask that question if you feel that you cannot explain a

  • phenomena without coming up with 50 examples then maybe your description of the phenomena is wrong so

  • as concise as you can

  • Tip number four when you're writing a formal email or an essay please refrain from writing there is of there are for example

  • There are a lot of students in San Francisco basically there are

  • Here is just a filler word because you don't have to use it students come to study in San Francisco

  • Tip number five some more words that you should refrain from using and these words really very so and a lot

  • I'll give you a couple of examples

  • She's really beautiful

  • instead of she's gorgeous gorgeous

  • What sounds more American to you where she's gorgeous try to use words that are strong in their meaning instead of using really very?

  • So etc next tip is using

  • Strong verb and by strong verbs I mean a verb that can it comprises a verb and a noun

  • and I will give you a list below this video an

  • Example is to give definition

  • Is a lot of words, but you can just say to define again?

  • You're just

  • Comprising everything in just one word and this is called a strong verb so if you want to sound more American

  • And if you want your written speech to be really

  • Use this from the burbs if you can say that somebody was better in competition. You can just say he dominated the competition

  • Instead of saying he was better

  • I wanted to update you on my pro

  • I am writing to update you on my progress
