Happy New Year! Did you have a restful
holiday? I kind of did. I got to spend a

0:00:09.809,0:00:14.370
lot of time with my son and catch up on
some reading that was mean to do for a

0:00:14.370,0:00:18.690
long time. So the year has started and work is still slow, so I got a little time to

0:00:18.690,0:00:23.400
myself to write an e-mail message to my
colleagues who work in the Phillipines

0:00:23.400,0:00:27.720
office. We used to work more closely
together but our responsibilities have

0:00:27.720,0:00:32.700
shifted and we don't get a chance to see
each other much anymore. So today, I want

0:00:32.700,0:00:37.890
to send an e-mail to a few colleagues, say
Happy New Year to them, and and see what

0:00:37.890,0:00:41.820
they have been up to lately. So here goes.
Hi guys,

0:00:41.820,0:00:46.260
Happy New Year! I hope you had been super unproductive during the holidays. Were

0:00:46.260,0:00:50.399
you able to rest well? I assumed you'd
get busy soon so I thought I'd catch up

0:00:50.399,0:00:55.110
with you guys now. Anyway, I'm excited to
have another year of collaboration with

0:00:55.110,0:01:00.449
you great people. Talk to you
again soon, Kyota. OK, so after the

0:01:00.449,0:01:05.939
standard New Year greeting, I said "I hope
you had been super unproductive during

0:01:05.939,0:01:09.810
holidays" because my colleagues are
always very productive and I hope they

0:01:09.810,0:01:14.490
didn't have to do anything work-related during the break. I asked them a

0:01:14.490,0:01:19.350
simple yes/no question: Were you able to
rest well?" instead of something like "What

0:01:19.350,0:01:23.520
did you do for New Year's Day?" "How was
New Year's?" because then, they will feel

0:01:23.520,0:01:28.439
like they need to share details. By just
asking a yes-no question, I'm leaving

0:01:28.439,0:01:34.200
it up to the other person to decide how
much he or she wants to talk about what

0:01:34.200,0:01:38.939
happened. And then I ended the e-mail on a positive note; otherwise the e-mail won't

0:01:38.939,0:01:43.170
sound complete. So there you go.
A simple New Year greeting for my

0:01:43.170,0:01:47.820
colleagues abroad. So I hope you were
super unproductive during the holidays

0:01:47.820,0:01:57.520
and enjoyed your time away from work. So thank you for watching again and see you next week.
