VIP Class Notes (Lily) [S]

Speaking

Suppose you have to cancel your travel plan and will not be able to visit Professor Smith. Write him an email.

1) Apologize and explain situation, and
2) Suggest a future meeting time, use name Li Ming.

Sorry Professor Smith, I must say sorry to you because I changed my plan. I get a cold.


To Professor Smith,

I’m Lily and I’m writing to apologize for canceling the meeting today at 10am. I suffered from a bad fever last night, and had to see the doctor this morning. The doctor advised me to rest at home, therefore I had to cancel the appointment with you.

I would be more than happy to schedule another appointment time with you next week. What would be your availability for next week in the morning? I look forward to meet you again!

Thank you so much for your understanding.

Best wishes,

Lily
