Dear Irfan ,
it has been a great day as I got an opportunity to travel in a rikshaw under the Samman scheme.It was a pleasant experience.Water,snacks and newspapers available in a rikshaw ! well that a was  nice idea.Still I feel I felt  like  missing something ..Can we have gears in the rikshaw ? Another idea is that advertisements can be placed using led boards.It would be a good thing if some basic medicines are also available in the rikshaw like paracetamol tablets, pain balms and so on.

With regards,

SEMI FORMAL ENGLISH



Formal, Semi-Formal, & Informal English
Why is it important?
Would you wear this to a job interview? No, because it's too informal.
Would you wear this to the beach? No, because it's too formal.
In the same way, using English that is too formal or too informal for the situation can cause a bad impression.

Semi-Formal English
1. Phrasal verbs & contractions = OK
Could you look over this report?
look over = review and check for errors
She came up with a great idea.

came up with = created, invented, thought of
To learn phrasal verbs,
I'm available on Friday morning. The directors weren't happy. take the Phrasal Verbs
This project is on the back burner.
in Conversation Course! 2. Some idioms are OK, but avoid slang and text speak
in the red = no money, negative cash flow
on the back burner = not a priority at the moment We're operating in the red.
Informal (inviting your best friend): "Hey, wanna grab a bite to eat?"
Semi-formal (inviting your boss): "Would you like to join me for lunch?" Semi-formal: "Hello, how are you?" Informal: "Wassup?"

Semi-formal: "The conference was great!" Informal: "It was awesome!" "It was the bomb!" 3. Use polite English
commands: Say "Could you please call me later?" and not just "Call me
Say "I'd like..." instead of "I want..." When making requests, use "could you" and "please," don't just give later."
I'm of a different opinion. / I see it differently.
Another part of polite English is making criticisms and negative comments in an indirect way: You're wrong. I'm afraid you're mistaken. I disagree. This is terrible work.
I'd prefer...
