In this exercise, you will be expressing your gratitude by writing a thank-you email to your reference. It’s important to acknowledge the gifts or services others have provided to you, as this not only makes them feel appreciated but also strengthens your relationship with them. To start, open your Gmail account and create a new email. Enter the email address of your reference in the “To” field. Be sure to add a subject line that clearly indicates the purpose of your email. Begin with a respectful greeting, followed by a heartfelt expression of thanks. Show genuine appreciation for the assistance or support you have received from your reference. 

After expressing your gratitude, include a forward-looking statement to give the message a warm and friendly tone. This lets your reference know that you value and look forward to maintaining your relationship with them. You might mention that you hope to see them again soon or are eager to speak with them in the near future. Conclude your email with a respectful closing, such as “Best Regards” or “Sincerely,” and sign your name. Before sending the email, take a moment to read it through and check for any errors. Make edits if necessary. If you’re ready to send your message now, go ahead. If you’re practicing and want to keep this as a draft for future use, save it accordingly. Your task now is to craft this thank-you email, keeping in mind these guidelines and the importance of showing gratitude.
