Anna’s been trying to sort out the order of Imperial Lemons for Mr Lime. She sends an email but her choice of text-speak isn’t appropriate and Paul, the boss, isn’t impressed.

Anna needs some help from Tom who always has plenty of advice. Her email is rewritten and sent off, but will that be the end of the matter?

This programme focuses on the correct language to use in an email.

Phrases from the programme:
Dear Mr Lime…
I hope you are well.
I am writing regarding…
Please could you confirm…
Best wishes.
