I'm studying in Sapporo, Japan next fall and am writing a letter (the first of several, I hope) to my host family. I'm only a first year student, so I don't have a whole lot of background into this and am wondering if there are greetings or goodbyes that are simple (I don't want to give them a false sense of my skills) and appropriate for both the written word and the fact that this is our first introduction? Can I use spoken greetings for this?
Thanks for the help!
Anybody know of any good reference sites for English and French punctuation?
Thanks in advance!
Does it refer to a counceling firm named BDO or mean something different? If referring to the firm, then why "accountants"? The phrase:
"A recent survey by accountants BDO and the UK’s Commerce and Industry Group (in-house lawyers association in England & Wales) found that 82 per cent of in-house counsels believe that hourly billing provides no incentive for firms to be efficient."
