How to Write a Formal Email
Whether it is for business or for other purposes, knowing how to write a formal or professional email is an extremely valuable skill.
In the subject line of your email, be sure to use a short, clear description of your reason for emailing. Avoid things like ‘Hello’ or leaving the subject line blank.
Before you’ve even started to write your email, it’s important to know how to use titles when addressing someone.
– For men, using ‘Mr’ along with either their surname or first name is appropriate
– Married women should be addressed with ‘Mrs’
– ‘Ms’ is used for women regardless whether they are married or not.
– University professors may be addressed as ‘Prof.’, and doctors are ‘Dr’

How to succeed in a job interview
1. Be prepared
Make sure you read up about what the company does before you step into the room. Check their website and social media pages to see what their business is all about. If you know the name of your interviewer(s), visit their LinkedIn and social media profiles to see who they are, what their position in the company is, and what they do. Think about how you can add value to the company and be prepared to mention this in your interview.
2. Dress professionally
A good rule of thumb is to dress for the position above the one you are applying for. If you are unsure of what to wear, a button down shirt and dress pants, with or without a tie, is a safe choice. Women can opt for a nice blouse and dress pants or a skirt, remembering to keep make-up natural and avoid heavy perfumes.
Remember to wear something you will be comfortable in, so you will not be distracted at all during the interview. The more comfortable and relaxed you are, the better you will perform.
3. Make a good first impression
English grammar and how to use apostrophes – While they might not look very important, apostrophes ( ‘ ) can really change the meaning of a phrase. To make sure that you’re using apostrophes properly, check out Verbalists’ explanation of how to use these little symbols.
Using an apostrophe to show possession/ownership
To show that something belongs to something (or someone) else, use an apostrophe after the noun and add the letter „s“:
John’s book (the book belongs to John)
The school’s courses (the courses belong to the school)
The cat’s toy (the toy belongs to the cat)

„Jezik je živ organizam, reka koja neprestano teče i neprestano se bistri i muti…“ govorio je svojevremeno veliki Meša Selimović. Uzevši u obzir složenost jezika i kulturološke razlike, često smo pred izazovom da ne ostanemo „izgubljeni u prevodu“ što može da ima nesagledive, često katastrofalne posledice, naročito kada su biznis i diplomatija u pitanju. Zato su tu iskusni prevodioci, pravi jezički žongleri, međutim šta ako se i njima neka greška potkrade? Kako se prevodioci obučavaju i pripremaju za svoje prevodilačke poduhvate? Kako simultano prevođenje zapravo funkcioniše? Današnji video donosi zamiljive primere i odgovore.🙂
O upotrebi ovog čuvenog zareza se i dalje vodi polemika među lingvistima i izdavačima a ispevana je i pesma o njemu. Upoznajte oksfordski zarez (Oxford Comma), poznat i kao harvardski zarez (Harvard Comma), ili serijski zarez (Serial Comma). Zanimljivo je da se oksfordski zarez vezuje za britanski engleski jezik, a pri tome se češće upotrebljava u američkom engleskom. Iako veb obiluje brojnim tekstovima i diskusijama o oksfordskom zarezu, nama u jezičkoj mreži najviše se dopao onaj koji je objavio Oxford Royale Academy. Tekst prenosimo u celosti u nastavku; uživajte dok razotkrivamo ovog “serijskog prestupnika” 🙂
The Oxford Comma: Essential or Inconsequential?
On Thursday March 24th the English Plus Film students at Kings Los Angeles held their second and final film screening.
The students’ final two projects were shown for a packed house: a black and white drama about an emotionally troubled woman, and a lighthearted action-comedy about the most desirable chocolate bar in the world.
The student lounge was converted into our own Dolby Theater for the event, complete with balloons, red carpet and photo booth. After the screening, “Kings Oscar” awards were handed out to the students, including “Best Actor”, “Best Director” and “Most Improved English”.
The students, from Hungary, Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium, Serbia and the Czech Republic spent the 12 weeks of the course practicing and honing their English while they learned about everything that it takes to make a movie. The students get hands-on experience writing, directing, acting, shooting and editing. Over the course of the class they all work together in different roles to make several short films of their own. Student Marietta Walter says of the course, “The 12 week English Plus Film course was one of the greatest experiences in my life so far. Kings has helped me to discover some of my inner potential.”
The Verbalists Language Network prepared the video showcasing the English Plus Film course’s work:
