シモンズさま、

お元気ですか?身近な方がタール火山噴火に影響されていないと良いのですが・・・

残念なことに、Yumiが現在マニラにおり、災害により飛び立てずにいます。数日前に帰国する予定でしたが、運航が再開されるまで待たなければなりません。

金曜日はYuheiと私のみ訪問させていただきます。お会いできるのを楽しみにしております。

Hello everyone. Welcome to E-mail Picks. I'm sure you've heard the news about the

0:00:09.420,0:00:13.469
volcano Taal erupting in the
Philippines. The volcano is just one

0:00:13.469,0:00:18.180
hundred kilometers away from Manila and the ashes from the volcano have reached

0:00:18.180,0:00:23.210
almost the entire country, so
people need masks to breathe air and

0:00:23.210,0:00:28.199
businesses and schools have closed,
flights have been canceled. So

0:00:28.199,0:00:33.059
everything's muddy and gray,
covered in ashes. So I'm worried

0:00:33.059,0:00:37.890
about our colleagues in the Philippines.
But one of us was scheduled to fly back

0:00:37.890,0:00:43.260
to Tokyo this week. She went to the
Philippines for vacation, but her flight

0:00:43.260,0:00:48.360
was canceled and she was supposed to
visit a client with us when she got back.

0:00:48.360,0:00:53.640
But of course she can't now. so I thought
I'd write to the client to let them know

0:00:53.640,0:00:57.449
that one of us will not be able to
attend the next meeting with them. So here

0:00:57.449,0:01:02.910
goes. Dear Mr. Simmons, I hope you're
doing well and that no one around you

0:01:02.910,0:01:06.560
has been seriously affected by the
eruption of Taal.

0:01:06.560,0:01:11.130
Unfortunately Yumi will not be able to
attend our next meeting as she has been

0:01:11.130,0:01:15.180
grounded in Manila due to the crisis. She
was scheduled to fly back two days ago

0:01:15.180,0:01:20.159
but she will wait until flights resume.
It will be just Yuhei and i visiting

0:01:20.159,0:01:22.710
you this Friday. I look forward to seeing
you again,

0:01:22.710,0:01:27.540
Kyota. OK, so I tried to go into the
main point smoothly in the first

0:01:27.540,0:01:30.900
paragraph. I'm sure mr. Simmons has heard the news

0:01:30.900,0:01:35.250
so I didn't have to explain much. I went
straight into telling him how the

0:01:35.250,0:01:40.140
eruption will be affecting our meeting.
And in the last paragraph, to wrap the

0:01:40.140,0:01:45.299
e-mail up, I informed our clients that only
two guys will be visiting, which is a big

0:01:45.299,0:01:51.210
bummer, but if I don't provide this bad
news, the e-mail won't feel complete. But

0:01:51.210,0:01:54.990
again, the real bad news is the volcanic
eruption, so we will suck it up. So there

0:01:54.990,0:01:59.969
you go. An e-mail to communicate an
emergency. I know many people's lives are

0:01:59.969,0:02:05.070
affected by this volcanic eruption, so I
hope things get better very soon.

0:02:05.070,0:02:11.739
OK, so thank you for watching. I'll see
you next week.
