  • Colleague is late sending you a report

    Dear Brandon,

    I hope you are well. When we spoke last week you mentioned that you had a stressful time but you promised sending me the document by yesterday. After checking my emails I have not seen any document from you until now. Please remember we have our meeting the day after tomorrow and we have to present your document then. I would be grateful if you could send me the document by this evening.

    Thank you!

    If I can be of any assistance, please contact me.

    Kind regards,

    Sandra

    Tone and language is correct. There are a few little grammar issues to iron out:

    > When we spoke last week you mentioned that you had BEEN HAVING (or WERE HAVING) a stressful time (You will study this grammar in your course ‘Tell Stories’, but if it is problematic maybe we can use one of our lessons to go over it)

    > the verb promise needs to be followed by the infinitive: not: you promised sending me but you promised to send me

    > After checking my emails I have not seen any document from you YET.

    Do let me know if you need anything clarified.
