请老师写推荐信邮件主题

如何请老师写推荐信,电子邮件说什么

Step 1:提出请求

如何请老师写推荐信呢?我认为最好当面提出,这样可以得到老师最直接的答复。如果没有机会,发邮件也可以。后者的好处是自己可以深思熟虑,组织好语 言,避免与教授面对面的紧张和尴尬;坏处是可能许久得不到回复。我的翻译课老师是个有邮件必及时回复的人,所以我用了第二种方式。

邮件标题:Recommendation for [Your Name]

会不会太直白了?不,不要不好意思在标题里“挑明”自己的目的,“开门见山”在此时其实是明智的做法。而且这一原则在正文部分要继续坚持。

正文:

我最初的思路是:

1. 先感谢老师在课堂上付出的时间,表示自己收获很大;

2. 然后写想申请某某大学的研究生项目;

3. 最后表示希望教授能为自己写一份推荐信。

后来我突然意识到这是一个完全错误的顺序。有人玩笑说,西方人读东方人的信函要从下往上读,不然完全不知所云,因为来信真正的目的往往出现在最末尾。 这样说不是毫无道理。东方人重含蓄,西方人喜直接,这是东西方思维习惯上的迥异。所以尊重西方人的习惯,最终成文的顺序正好相反,颠倒成3.2.1。字体 可用Arial,5号。

这是我给老师的第一封邮件:

Dear Dr. [Surname or full name],

【说明来函目的】

My name is Yi Fan and I have taken part in your course “Translation I” (Group J). I am writing to ask if you would be willing to write a letter of recommendation for me.

【解释需要推荐信的原因】

I would like to further my study in the field of translation and am planning to apply for the graduate program MA in Translating and Interpreting in Great Britain after returning to China. So it would be of great help if I could receive a letter of recommendation from you in support of the application. I would really appreciate it. Here with I also send the writing by myself and my resume with more detailed information. [注]

【写明deadline and how you will follow up】

I am going back to China at the end of this week. Please let me know if you are willing to write me a recommendation letter and I'd be glad to come to your office.

【表示感谢】

Now the time as an exchange student here is about to over. Thank you for the time and assistance you offered us. It was a great pleasure to take part in this translation course and it was one of my favourite among all the courses I have attended at Ruhr-University.

Best regards,

Yi Fan

【注】解释两件事:

1. 我在邮件里附上了自己写好的草稿和个人简历。原则上说,推荐信应该完全由教授写,但是我相信大学教授们公务已经很繁忙,不会闲到有时间为我们斟词酌句,从 空白的纸上写出费时又费力得推荐信。但如果是在现有的草稿上修改就不一样了,这不仅会为他们减轻很多工作量,而且能让他们知道你想在推荐信里强调自己哪方 面的能力,从而最终的结果也更能meet your expectations.即使不写完整的草稿,也要在邮件中提供详细的信息和材料。附上最基本的简历能为教授提供被推荐人的经历的大致轮廓,毕竟他们没 有理由为一个自己根本不了解的学生写推荐。

2. 那么这些文件是以附件形式还是正文形式发送呢?这是申请中的老问题。有一个基本的原则是:如果收件人用的是hotmail、gmail之类的邮箱,则可用附件形式发送;如果是公司、学校的邮箱则在正文部分粘贴为佳,以避免这类邮箱不支持附件。

Step 2:等待回复

当天下午,我收到了老师回复如下:(我真欣赏这老师的效率!)

Dear Ms Fan,

Thank you for your e-mail. Sure, I can write the letter of recommendation for you; however, as I am at the moment hard-pressed for time, I cannot promise to have the piece ready by the end of the week. Please let me know quickly whether it is alright if I send you the document after my return from my holidays at the beginning of August. Are there any deadlines?

Best

M. Goth

Step 3:继续交涉和沟通

后来的回复中我给了老师邮寄地址,说了申请学校对推荐信的具体要求。然而第二天一早我就收到了下面这封邮件:

Dear Ms Fan,

I am happy to inform you that I have by now written your recommendation. I shall be at the university tomorrow; you can reach me between 9.15 and 10 in the morning, and between 2 and 4 in the afternoon. I have attached my text to your e-mail. Please let me know if you are able to pick it up tomorrow.

Best regards

M. Goth

回复老师自己大概什么时间去办公室,想一想感谢的话,一切OK!

Step 4:感谢推荐人

最后别忘记再次发邮件感谢,这不仅仅是一种good manners,更重要的是在未来的学术领域我们很可能还会需要他们的帮助。保持联系,告诉推荐人申请的进展;如果最终获得admission,更应和自己的推荐人分享这份欣喜。

我的感谢信是这样写的:

Dear Dr. Goth,

I would like to thank you for taking the time and effort to write the letter of recommendation for me. I am truly thankful for your support.

Translating gives me great pleasure and so did your translation course. I appreciate the way you teach and enjoyed the discussions in the class. Every time we finished translating a text, I felt a great sense of achievement. After this summer term, I become even more determined to further my study in this field.

I want to let you know how much your recommendation letter means to me. It will open doors and provide opportunities as I start this next stage of my life. I will keep you updated about my progress in applying to graduate school. Thanks again.

Best regards,

Yi Fan
