E-mail Writing

Read the email carefully and check out any vocabulary you don't know.


Dear Mr White,

Thank you for your recent job application.

I'm afraid to say that we have received a large number of applications from candidates more
obviously qualified for the job than you appear to be. You have not been shortlisted for
this particular job.

However, we have retained your job application in our files and will contact you if a
vacancy appears that seems to be more in line with your qualifications and experience.

We would like to offer you our good wishes for your continued search for a suitable job.

Yours sincerely,

Conny Black
Executive Vice-President


Now try these two exercises. (You will probably need to click at the top of your browser to allow these programs to run.)

What comes next?

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

Email Writing

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