跟教授通英文邮件的18种礼仪


无论你是何种文化背景,在现今这个生活节奏越来越快的社会,某些细节也许就能体现你的与众不同。正所谓“细节决定成败”,与教授的交流中,有些小细节可能就会改变他对你的看法。一起来看看吧~~

1. E-mail is forever. Once you send it off, you can't get it back. Once your professor has it, he or she owns it and can save it or, in the worst case, forward it onto colleagues for a good laugh—at your expense.

邮件是永久性的。一旦你把它发出去了,就不可能再收回来了。只要教授收到了邮件,他就主宰了这封邮件的命运,或者保存,或者是把邮件转发给同事博取一笑(这是最糟的情况)——后果自负哦。

2. E-mail goes where it's told. Check—and double check—to see that the right address appears in the "To" line. Just because your mom and your professor are both named "Lynn" is no reason to send all your love to Professor Lynn.

邮件要发到正确的邮箱里。检查,再检查,看“发送到”那一栏的地址是不是正确。仅仅因为你的妈妈和你的教授的名字都是"Lynn",也没有理由把你所有的爱都寄送到了Lynn教授那里吧。

3. Professors might not be using the cruddy university e-mail system. So send it to the address they actually use, not the one on the university directory. (Check the syllabus or assignment sheet for clues.)

教授可能不使用大学的乱七八糟的邮箱系统。所以把邮件发送到他们真正在用的邮箱地址,而不是大学通讯录上的邮箱地址。(检查一下他们的个人摘要或者任务分配表来寻找一些线索。)

4. Professors might not open mail sent from luckydogpig@thepound.com. They prefer to open mail sent from more reputable addresses, like you@theCruddyUniversityE-mailSystem.edu.

教授可能不会打开一封发自luckydogpig@thepound.com的邮件。他们更喜欢打开那些来自比较有名的邮箱地址,就像you@theCruddyUniversityE-mailSystem.edu。

5. Subject lines are for subjects. Put a brief explanation of the nature of the e-mail (like "question about paper") in the subject line. Never include demands such as "urgent request—immediate response needed." That's the surest way to get your request trashed.

主题栏要紧扣主题。在主题栏要对这封邮件有一个简要的解释。千万不要包含一些要求,比如说“紧急请求--请立即回复”,可以很肯定的说,你的请求会像垃圾一样处理掉。

6. Salutations matter. The safest way to start is with "Dear Professor So and So" (using their last name). That way you won't be getting into the issue of whether the prof has a Ph.D. or not, and you won't seem sexist when you address your female-professor as "Ms." or, worse yet, "Mrs. This and That."

称呼很重要。最安全的开头方式是用“亲爱的×××教授”。这样的话你就不会再考虑这个教授是不是个博士或其他,并且当你称呼你的女教授“Ms”或者“Mrs.”也不会显得像是个性别歧视者。
