How often do you write an email?
I don’t really write emails that often, to be honest. My friends and I mostly chat freely through WeChat, or we’ll even call each other once in a blue moon. I get tons of emails as a student, but other than asking teachers about assignments, I don’t tend to write them.
Who do you always write to?
Whenever I send emails, it’s usually to my teachers. I just email them so I can ask about assignments and make sure I’m doing them right. Luckily my teachers are pretty quick with replies so I can get my homework done on time. I don’t think I really write emails to anyone else.
Do you think it’s important to reply to emails quickly?
Yes, I definitely think it’s important to reply to emails quickly. For one, it’s just common courtesy. You don’t want to waste other people’s time. Some emails need to be replied to as soon as possible, so it’s best not to put it off . For another, it helps clear out your inbox.
Do you prefer contacting others by text messages or emails?
I definitely prefer text messages. Most of my friends don’t even check their emails that often, so it’s a lot easier to get a hold of them over text. Plus, emails are really formal. I feel like texts can get to the point a lot quicker and they don’t have to be as serious.
Is there an email that made you happy recently?
Well, talking about an email that I was really happy to receive, the only one I can think of right now is an offer of admission email (or “job offer email”) that I received. I’ve been expecting it from the university (or “company”) for months and I still remember the moment my phone popped out a notification of receiving this email. I was over the moon.
