1 Letter of Thanks and Congratulation
Unit Three Letter of Thanks and Congratulation

2 Part One Gratitude 1. Cultural Background
在英美国家,人们至今还习惯于写感谢信来表达自己最真诚的谢意。感谢信广泛应用于日常社会交往和商务活动中。 当收到礼物,得到帮助、照顾、款待或祝贺时,应写信道谢; 商务活动中,对客户或供应商的支持、建议、服务,应写信表感谢,以加强企业间的联系,同时帮助树立良好形象。

3 2、Form 感谢信通常分为正式感谢信和非正式感谢信,前者行文得体、语气礼貌谦恭、用词正式正规;后者语气则更加亲切热情。

4 3. Requirements 1) Faithful 缺乏真挚的感情去答谢他人,收信人将对你的谢意产生怀疑,感谢的目的就失去了。因此,写感谢信首先要真心诚意。

5 2). Specific 切忌泛泛而谈,而应着重于具体的感谢事由。对感谢的理由要做具体的说明 3). Timely 收到别人礼物、得到别人的帮助,应及时写信予以答谢。否则,人家会对你的谢意大打折扣。

6 4、Frame 表达感谢之情并说明原因 提及自己曾受到对方的帮助 再次感谢并表达回报愿望 Tips: 表达的感激之情要恰到好处,不要过于夸张。 建议在结尾尽量表达希望回报对方的愿望,显得更加真诚。

7 5. Sample You have just come back from a student exchange program in the U.S. Write a letter to your host family in New York to express your gratitude for their hospitality, describe the help they gave you, offer to repay their help and invite them to visit you.

8 Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smith,     I am now back to China safe and sound. In this letter I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks to you and your lovely children for your kindness and hospitality to host me when I was in New York. Your generous help and tender care made me feel warmly welcomed and transformed my first American trip into a beautiful memory.

9 I do hope that your whole family pay a visit to China in future, so that I could have the opportunity to repay your friendship. I assure you that you would enjoy visiting here as I did at your home.     I feel obliged to thank you once more. Sincerely yours, Li Ming

I assure you that you would enjoy visiting here as I did at your home. I feel obliged to thank you once more .

11 6. Useful Patterns 1) Please accept my sincere appreciation for …    请接受我对……真挚的感谢 2) I am truly grateful to you for ……     为了……,我真心感激您 3) It was good (thoughtful) of you ……     承蒙好意(关心)……  4) You were so kind to send ……     承蒙好意送来……   

12 5) Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality and I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
    再次感谢您的盛情款待,并期待不久见到您 6)I find an ordinary "thank-you" entirely inadequate to tell you how much…… 我觉得一般的感谢的字眼完全不足以表达我对您多么地…… 7)I sincerely appreciate …… 我衷心地感谢…… 8)I wish to express my profound appreciation for ……     我对……深表谢意 9)Many thanks for you generous cooperation.

13 Some Tips Using stationery is always a nice touch. If you are thanking someone for a gift given at an event, try stationery that matching colors and styles of the event. Send a thank-you note as soon as possible so the recipient does not feel that you have forgotten her or him. If you have several thank-you letters to write, consider buying a box of gift cards. Thanks should be expressed for material and immaterial things. Someone who helped set up or clean up should be thanked just as much as the person who threw the party.

14 Include a return address.
If the letter is to a good friend, you can include an inside joke or a bit of news for a more personal touch. If you are sending several thank you notes, be careful not to say exactly the same thing in each one. Make each note personal. It will mean more that way. A thank-you note need not be long, just genuine. If blank space on the page bugs you, use a small notecard rather than a larger sheet of paper.

15 Some Warnings Do not send thank-you notes via e-mail.
Send your thank-you note via postal mail always, even if you see the person every day or week. Should you decide to go the handwritten route, don't use a pencil to write the address or note itself. The address can smear and then your letter won't arrive and also the note could smudge and look dirty, taking away from the nice feeling you have tried to create. Make sure your writing is legible. Never write a snide or sarcastic thank-you note. It is better to say nothing than to prove that you cannot be grateful for someone's time and effort.

16 8.Different types of thanks letter
1). 感谢帮助 A note of thanks for one’s help  Dear William:  Thank you very much for your kind letter of October 15, 2008, concerning my project.  It was good of you to come to my assistance, and I appreciate your generosity. Your aid will be invaluable in helping me accomplish my objectives. If I can reciprocate at any time, please be sure to call on me.  Thanks again for your courtesy. Cordially, Bear

17 2). 感谢别人的祝贺 A note of thanks for one’s compliment
  Dear Miss Allen:   Thanks you very much for your kind letter of April 14, 2008, concerning our service.   It is constantly gratifying to receive a complimentary letter like yours, which indicates that our efforts to serve you are appreciated. You may be sure that our department will receive appropriate recognition for a job well done.   Thank you again for your courtesy.    Cordially, Bear

18 3). 感谢别人的指教 A note of thanks for one’s guidance
  Dear Professor Jackson:   It is just two months since I consulted with you about choosing my job and I want to assure you that I appreciate your help.   Your advice has been invaluable, and I have followed the course you recommended, with gratifying results. I took the job, and consider it the wisest step I could have taken.   I would like to express my gratitude, along with my very best wishes.    Cordially, Bear

19 4). 感谢别人的招待并送礼物 A letter of thanks for one’s hospitality and sending a gift
  Dear Lora:   Please accept my thanks for the very pleasant time I spent on Tuesday evening at your office.   I very much appreciated your hospitality and also thoroughly enjoyed three very interesting colorful films which were shown to us.   Now I would like to express my thanks for your warm hospitality with a little gift that you will shortly receive.    Cordially,    Susan

20 9、Practice After being involved in an accident, you were looked after by another person. Write a letter of gratitude and include the following details: 1) Mentioning what happened in the accident; 2) Telling the person about your recovery; 3) Expressing your thanks.

21 Dear John,   I am writing to thank you for looking after me after that unfortunate accident the other day, when I was knocked off my bike by a taxi. If it had not been for your assistance in giving me first aid and taking me to a nearby hospital, I fear that the consequences might have been much more serious.   The doctor says that my broken leg is healing well. In addition, the taxi company has agreed to pay my hospital bills. Everyone agrees that it was your quick-witted response in that Emergency that has led to this satisfactory outcome.

22  Although nowadays many people talk about the need to be unselfish and to help others, we see very few people practicing what they preach. But you showed by your actions that you are an exception.    Yours sincerely, Li Ming

23 Part Two Congratulation
1. Definition 得到亲友、同事、同学等通过考试,荣获晋升、获得学位、结婚、喜得贵子等好消息时写的信。

24 2. Principles 1). The purpose of writing the letter is to make your reader feel certain that he or she deserves the special message of recognition and praise. 2). The note should be brief, dealing with the primary topic only. These messages are most effective when they conduct no business.

25 3). The whole message should carry a tone of being positive and conversational.
4). Be sure to send the letter within a few days of the event. Any delay in delivery of the message would make your effort worse than no effort at all.
