Communicating in Forums Anthony I will try to explain to you the best that I can what I personally think you could have done a little different. First off you addressed the whole group as “guys” and that could have offended her because she is not a guy. When addressing a group you need to address it as classmates or schoolmates or even friends not guys as there are not just guys in the group there is woman are ladies also.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
