Dear Harriet,

Thank you very much for sending me your proposal for next year’s training courses.

I’m afraid that we have received two other proposals with much lower prices than those in your one. Unless you can find some way of reducing your asking price, I don’t think that there is any way that we can continue to work together. 

We will be making a final decision next Monday. If you wish to send us an adjusted proposal, we would need to have it by Friday at the latest.

If you need any further information, please email me.

Now try these two exercises.

What comes next?

In the first exercise, you have to rewrite the text in the correct order. You have to choose ‘what comes next’.


In the second exercise, you have to fill in all the missing words. Tip- try ‘the’ first.
