Hi,

"Further to our phone conversation of this morning, both the Cristi and Faci have confirmed that they will ....".

Question:

What's the meaning of the phrase "further to"? It means 'I now have some more comments, or more information, or have taken some action as a reesult of, our previous conversation'. eg

Further to our conversation, I'd like to add that . . .

or Further to our conversation, we have shipped 100 widgets to you . . .

Furthter to any communication, eg phone calls, letter, face to face conversation, etc.

Best wishes, Clive
Hi Clive,

Will it make sense if I say 'In continuation to' instead of 'Further to'?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Thank you!
Hi,

Will it make sense if I say 'In continuation to' instead of 'Further to'?

I wouldn't recommend that. First of all, it's not a 'standard, common phrase'. Second, it just expresses the idea of 'continuing', whereas 'further to' includes the idea of some new development or outcome.

Best wishes, Clive
Got it, Thanks.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi Clive,
I like the clarifications you provided on the phrase "further to" and believe you might be able to help with my question below:

Can one also say for instance "Further to the (on-going) project in Brighton, I write to........
No. 'Further to' makes it sound like the project has finished.
I suggest
eg With regard to the project . . .
can I say further our meeting, or I have to say further to our meeting?
