Hello Mr. XXX The weather is getting colder now and I hope you are feeling well. I am very happy that we finally gathered together last week. If you don’t mind, I will plan more events like this in the future.
Thank you again for joining the meeting yesterday. Your opinions are greatly valued and I appreciate them a lot.
I believe that during the meeting, the latest sales figure was released. Could you update the data in the report you sent earlier? I hope that it is not too much trouble. Thank you very much.
Hi XXX, Could you update the data to the latest sales figure and resend it? Thanks!
Email 話中有話 VS. 長話短說
以上例子雖然有玩笑成分，但不失真實。美國人類學家Edward T. Hall區分 出低語境和高語境文化，低語境文化包括美國、英國、德國，這些國家重視時間效率，溝通直接，不談論私人生活。高語境文化如中國、日本、非洲、拉丁國家，重視細節以及彼此的商業合作關係。寫Email的時候，可以針對不同文化的語境，適度調整。
