English Phrases and Expressions for Giving Explanations

After talking about making complaints and asking for clarification, I think it is essential to go through the list of phrases which can help you give clear explanations. As usual, you’ll notice the abbrevations F, SF, and I for formal, semi-formal and informal register, respectively:

***Book a 50 min Skype lesson to practise ONLY what you need to improve your English and feel more confident when speaking.***

F: The amin reason for doing this is to …

F: Taking into account …, it was clear that …

SF: The most important point seems to me that …

SF: It seems obvious that …

I: It is important that …

I: … because I am sure that …

Let me give you a few examples from the emails I’ve sent so far, where I’m using phrases for explaining and justifying:

1.  The main reason for insisting on you sending us a joint invoice, is to simplify and speed up the payment procedure.

2. It is important to remember that we have agreed on the mentioned price because of the large amount of the goods you’ve ordered.

3. The main point is that you should pay by the end of next week in order for us to start the production of TS2094 item.
