Learn English – How to write an email to a Professor to politely agree with his request?


Sometimes, my supervisor writes emails to ask whether we can cancel or reschedule our meetings, or request me other things. The way he writes emails is very polite. And I usually reply him by:

  • Yes, sure!
  • Yes, it's fine!

I wonder if these responses are considered polite?

How do I politely (but not really formally) respond to my Professors' requests?

Thank you very much!

I would recommend "That works for me." or "That sounds good."

I would say both of these are one "politeness-level" higher than the two phrases you mentioned. It's fine to use exclamation marks instead of periods here, too.
