    concluding remarks

    Dear teachers,

    I find it is extremely difficult to say something correctly on certain occasions.
    I have just solve the problem of opening remarks. Now I have to ask you about concluding remarks.

    What do we say when a meeting, again for example, a thesis defence meeting, is over? Is it informal to say 'The oral defence is over'? In a formal way we should we say? Do we say ..... bring the meeting to a close?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Jiang,
    It is a little difficult to answer this question accurately, because you have not provided enough information abou tthe type of meeting, the participants the size of the audience or the setting.

    Generally speaking, you may end a meeting by stating,

    "I have reached the end of my remarks, and unless there are any questions, I'd like to invite you all to enjoy refreshments. Please join us if you like."

    Or

    "We are adjurned. Thank you for your attention."

    Or

    "I am confident that I can count on your feedback in the near future. Your input is always appreciated. Thank you very much"

    Dear Ayuda,
    Thank you very much for your explanation. Now I see. But what does the word 'adjurned' mean?

    Best wishes,

    I'm sorry; I spelled it wrong. It should have been "adjourned' It means that the meeting is finished.
