An Activity: Draft a Response!
Info needed to craft a response to this email:
- we just finished class number nine for this session
- this is the first I heard that this guy was in my class
- This is a very technical class where every lesson builds critically on previous lessons. I can see no conceivable way even to talk about this lesson without a deep knowledge of the past nine classes.
- I came very close to splitting an infinitive in the previous bullet point. Can you guess where? Now that I look at it again, I hope you can.
Subject: Hey there!
Hey there! I'm G. Nius who barely hacked his way through your last class. How are things goin'? I just wanted to tell you not to drop me from this class. I haven't been to class yet because I just got back in town. Oh, and I'm not going to be in class tomorrow because I got stuck in City-Very-Much-Within-Driving-Distance. So I guess I'll make up all the quizzes when I get back?
Sigh, He's actually a hard working guy and I'll try to help him out. Feh. I'm a pushover.
Enough about me! How would you answer?
