    Hi Zoe,
    What does "follow the samples mean"? Do you mean follow up on?


    Would you like me to follow the samples that the factory sent directly to the customer, or would you prefer that it be handled either by your or Lisa?

    How about '... by either yourself or Liza?'

    Re: is this sentence correct?

    Hi Barb,

    Yes, I mean "follow up"

    And I revise the sentence as : Would you like I follow up the samples that Amy sent directly to the customer? Or do you prefer Elsa or you to handle it?

    Is this work? Please take a look and correct me when you have time.

    Thanks & Regards
    Zoe

    Re: is this sentence correct?

    Hi again Zoe,

    Would you like for me to follow up on the samples that Amy sent directly to the customer? Or would you prefer that it be handled by Elsa or yourself?

    Note that it's "Does that work?" not "Is that work?." I see a lot of people who form questions with the wrong verb.

    Are you/Is it -- use with an adjective or noun. Are you happy? Is it a good solution?

    Does it/Do you -- use with a verb: Do you like lobster? Does it work this way?
