During this one-day email seminar at intermediate level, you will practise writing different types of emails dealing with amongst other things:


  • Negotiations

  • Inquiries

  • Orders

  • Requests for payment

  • Apologies



In the modern business world, the ability to write effective and coherent emails in English is becoming increasingly essential. As part of the learning process, you will be equipped with the necessary tools to ensure you write with the greatest possible effectiveness and grammatical accuracy. For example, you will learn how to use commas, abbreviations, contractions and linking expressions.
With these skills, you can be sure that your emails will be concise and businesslike as well as polite and diplomatic.
You are encouraged to bring examples of emails you have received and written yourself, so that immediate feedback can be provided.

Teaching material
Materials will be handed out in class and are included in the price.

Practical information
You will have access to our online learning platform, Moodle, where you will find the course plan, teaching material, homework and other useful online resources for learning English, which your teacher has selected for you and your class. Via Moodle, you can also communicate with your teacher and fellow students.
The number of students on all courses at the Cambridge Institute is just 4-8. Small classes mean that your teacher has more time to help you personally on your course.

Wynn Stewart

Wynn underviser i engelsk på Cambridge Institute. Han er født i Californien og er halv amerikaner og halv brite, eftersom has mor var "andengenerationsindvandrer" i USA (af dansk afstamning), hans far var oprindelig fra Skotland, og hans farmor var nordmand. Wynn har boet i USA, Japan, England og Danmark, i den rækkefølge. Fordi hans baggrund er lidt indviklet, plejer han blot at fortælle, at han betragter sig selv som en "verdensborger". Han er gift med Anne-Grete og er far til fire amerikanske/britiske/danske børn.

Wynn har en master i engelsk og samfundsfag. Har taler engelsk og dansk og kan også en del japansk og lidt spansk. Han holder af sprog og sprogundervisning og elsker at se forbedring i elever. Han kan undervise på alle niveauer, men foretrækker CAE, Proficiency og businessengelsk.
Wynn er glad for to citater, der mere eller mindre opsummerer hans syn på undervisning: "Be the guide on the side, not the sage on the stage" og "They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care".

Hans fritidsinteresser inkluderer læsning, løbetræning, film og brætspil. Han tror på, at hver person har et formål i livet, og at "der er mere mellem himmel og jord".

Wynn anbefaler:
Food and drink:
Pizza, pasta, a durum shawarma, japanese "okonomiyaki" or a good Caeser salad, washed down with a mango lassi (I don't drink alcohol or smoke)
Learning tips: Remember to read and listen. Be curious and willing to make mistakes. Practice may make perfect, but don't be a perfectionist.
Places to visit: London! If you're tired of London, you're tired of life. 
Literature: Anything by Ray Bradbury, John Steinbeck or C.S. Lewis
