Making and Dealing with Complaints

Sometimes we MAKE complaints and sometimes we have to DEAL with them. It’s important to we understand how we should structure not only a complaint letter or email, but also how we should reply if our company receives a complaint.

Below is a basic template along with some phrases we can use to help construct a letter of complaint or if we need to reply to a complaint.

Writing to complain

Reasons for writing - I am writing to you regarding.. / I am contacting you about.. / I would like to bring your attention to.. /

Something good - Firstly, let me say I am a fan of.... / I am a regular customer / I am a loyal customer of yours / I have used your … many times /

The problem with details and examples if needed -  that said / However, / With that being said / Having said that I / Unfortunately I have… What you think should be doneIn my opinion I think… / I think it is only fair / It think as this as happened, you should..

Signing off - I look forward to hearing from you / I hope to hear from you soon / I look forward to your reply/response / I would appreciate a fast response on this matter /

Yours faithfully/yours sincerely

Note we use yours faithfully when we don't know the name of the person we are writing to

Replying to complaint


Thanks for contacting - Thank you for your recent email/letter/phone call / We really appreciate you getting in contact / Thank you for your feedback

Apologise from the problem(s) -  I am awfully sorry about.. / It Is unacceptable that you… / Answering any questions and what you are doing about the problem -  We are going to … / We will .. right away…

Offer alternative/solution - We would like to offer you … / In the meantime… / To apologise we would like to… /

Signing off - I look forward to hearing from you / I await your reply / I hope this meets your expectations

Yours sincerely

Skype lessons or Zoom classes with me

I am not a school, so I am not all about profit. I am an individual, a teacher, a teacher who specialises in working with Russian English learners, a native speaker from England who genuinely wants to help. You don't need to deal with a school or online school where you have to speak to this person about this and that person about that, you only speak to me directly, which makes life a lot easier. If you are interested in Skype English lessons or Zoom English classes, then please get in touch, I hope to speak to you soon.
