ENDING A BUSINESS EMAIL OR LETTER (INCLUDING ATTACHMENT)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Monday to everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. 

This week's theme is Ending a Business Letter / Email.

We often end a letter by explaining what we are attaching to the email or letter, so today we are looking at phrases used to indicate that you have INCLUDED AN ATTACHMENT.

EMAIL
Attached you will find...
I am attaching...
I have attached...
Please find attached...

LETTER
Enclosed you will find...
I am enclosing...
I have enclosed...
Please find enclosed...

Remember: we do NOT use the Simple Present when we attach or enclose something in an email or letter. 

INCORRECT: **I attach the...**

Thank you for reading! I hope you all have a wonderful day.

ANIMAL IDIOMS (TAKE THE BULL BY THE HORNS)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Hello everyone!

Today is our last day of Animal Idioms. We are learning the expression TO TAKE THE BULL BY THE HORNS

Definition: To deal with a difficult or dangerous situation, without hesitation. 

Example 1: No one wanted to run the meeting, so I took the bull by the horns and began telling everyone what to do. 

Example 2: It's time that I take the bull by the horns in my job and start making more decisions about our clients and accounts. 

We also say, "GRAB the bull by the horns."

This expression probably originated from the American West and was used by cowboys to talk about their work. You can learn more about its origin at the following link.

We hope you enjoyed these useful (business-related) idioms with animals.

Next week, we focus on ways to end a business email or letter.

Have a great weekend!
