When we’re sending emails, it’s easy to be too direct. This can upset the reader or cause offence. Saying “thank you” is a great way to make your email more polite and personal. What’s the best way to do it, though? Find out with our top five ways to say “thank you” in an English email.
5. Thank you for your kind cooperation
If you need the reader to cooperate by assisting you with something, then thank them in advance for their cooperation. You can add the expression “in advance” to this sentence and say “Thank you in advance for your cooperation.”
4. Thank you for your attention to this matter
Similar to above, this sentence implies that you would appreciate the readers’ further assistance. This expression also shows that the request you have made is important and that the reader should pay special attention to it.
3. Thank you for your understanding
This sentence isn’t to congratulate the reader on understanding the words you have written. We use this sentence to say “Thank you” in advance if we have done something or requested something that may cause inconvenience to the reader.
2. Thank you for your consideration
If you are requesting a benefit or an opportunity, such as when you apply for a new job, end your email with this sentence.
1. Thank you again for everything you’ve done
This sentence, which is used at the end, is a bit different from those above. Use this if you have already thanked the reader at the beginning of the email, but due to their great efforts, you wish to thank them again for their past actions.
Now you know how to say “thank you” in an English email, the only question left is who you want to thank.
