Lesson Plan Text

Correct the emails to academic staff

What is wrong with the emails below? (There are several different problems in each).

Dear Assistant Professor John Grant

I have a question about the homework which you set. You said over 250 words, but is 
there a maximum word limit too?

Sincerely yours

Stefano

Sorry for missing your class last week. Would you send me a copy of the materials so I
