1. Do you use emails?
Definitely. I send and receive email on a daily basis, especially for my study. Emails are a message exchange medium where I can get my point of view across to my friends and lecturers.
|1||on a daily basis||/ɒn ə ˈdeɪli ˈbeɪsɪs/||hằng ngày|
|2||Message exchange||/ˈmɛsɪʤ ɪksˈʧeɪnʤ/||trao đổi thông tin|
|4||Get sth. across||/gɛt əˈkrɒs/||truyền tải; làm cho người khác hiểu mình|
2. Do you prefer use email or text messaging?
I still prefer texting to emails because sending a text is much faster than sending an email. Salutation (formal greeting) and signature are required when we write emails, but we needn’t do such a thing when we text. Besides, texting is a default application on mobile phones and, unlike emails, is always at our disposal even without internet connection, which makes texting a more accessible medium.
|1||Salutation ≈ formal greeting||/ˌsæljuːˈteɪʃən/ /ˈfɔːməl ˈgriːtɪŋ/||A greeting in words or actions, or the words used at the beginning of a letter or speech|
|2||at someone’s disposal||/æt wʌnz dɪsˈpəʊzəl/||available to be used by someone|
|3||accessible||/əkˈses.ə.bəl/||Able to be reached or easily got|
3. Do you think it’s important to reply to emails immediately (or quickly) after you receive them?
I would say yes. I think rapid response to newly received email is very crucial, because that will show our respect to the email sender. When I have to make an important decision through email, I still respond “received” quickly, and spend time taking that issue into consideration. Then I will send another email to announce my decision.
|1||Rapid response||/ˈræp.ɪd rɪˈspɒns/||The act of answer a question quickly|
|2||Newly received||/ˈnjuː.li rɪˈsiːvd/||Something new that you just got|
|3||Crucial||/ˈkruː.ʃəl/||Extremely important or necessary|
|4||Take something into consideration||/teɪk ˈsʌmθɪŋ ˈɪntuː kənˌsɪdəˈreɪʃən/||To think carefully about a particular fact when deciding or judging something|
4. How often do you check your emails?
I would say I check my emails, maybe on a daily basis. Emails are very crucial to me as it is a medium of communication between my friends or my lecturers and me. Therefore, I often check mails to get some official notifications from my lecturers.
|1||A medium of communication||/ə ˈmiːdiəm ɒv kəˌmjuːnɪˈkeɪʃən/||A mean to help people communicate with the others|
|2||Notification||/ˌnəʊtɪfɪˈkeɪʃən/||The act of telling someone officially about something, or a document that does this|
