Az e-mailírás előnyei a telefonhívással szemben
Advantages of E-mailing as Opposed to Phone Calls
Professor: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, my name is John MacFarlaine And I’m a professor at the Telecommunication Department. The topic of today’s lecture is e-mailing, one of the latest and most popular means of communication. But instead of simply giving you a talk I’d like to involve you in the lecture, so let me ask you a question first: What do you think, what made e-mailing so popular?
Student1: It’s cheap. Incredibly cheap, as opposed to using phone.
Professor: That’s right. What else?
Student2: It’s extremely fast. Traditional post doesn’t stand a chance – it turns out to be snail-mail, as I call it.
Professor: That’s a good one! What about sharing information?
Student3: It couldn’t be easier than via e-mail. You can simply cut, copy or paste parts of any e-mail and forward it with one click.
Professor: Yes, this is just what I meant. Now a few words about the development…

Inquiring About a Lost Invoice Via Mail
I am writing to you with respect to a lost invoice. Our company (….name…, address…) has purchased some goods from your multinational company, and we received all the necessary invoices with one exception. I am afraid you either missed to send it or it was lost on the way, as we have never received it. The purchase took place on 25 May, 2006, and the reference number is 84627. I would like to ask you to send the missing invoice to the address above as soon as possible.
Thank you for your co-operation,
Invitation Via E-mail
I haven’t heard from you for ages! How are you doing? Well, as I think back, doing business with you was one of the greatest things in my carrier so far. In fact, I’ve never had such a good business partner ever since, and I’m glad that we turned out to get on so well. These days I’m busy as usual, but I think that’s the same for you. However, I really do not want to lose contact with you, so I thought of challenging you to a friendly tennis match. How would you like that? Maybe next week sometime? It would be great to catch up on the latest news and do some sport together. I’d love to hear from you, so write back soon!
