Hi.

I am filling out a recommendation form for someone, and in that form, I don't know what to write in response to how well?

The follwing is part of the form;

1. How long have you known the applicant? for three years how well?--------------

2. In what capacity have you known the applicant? his B.Sc. advisor and TA supervisor

I would be grateful if you could list me several possible answers for how well?

Thanks for your time and help

How well? Some examples:

'We work together in the same section of our company."
"He is a close relative of my fiancee and we often have dinner together."
"We went to high school together."
"He is my best friend."
"He works in my company but at a different location, and we see each other during monthly meetings.'
Respected Mr. Micawber,
1. How long have you known the applicant?

2. In what capacity have you known the applicant?

Grammatically, can I ask the same questions in the following manner;

1. How long do you have acquaintance with the applicant?
2. In what capacity do you have acquaintance with the applicant?

I would be highly thankful to you, if you could throw some light on this, sir.

With high regards,
Sri

Thanks for your response Mister Micawber.

But the answer you provided for how well? is very similar to the one for in what capacity do you know tha applicant?

For instance if I write I have been his supervisor then what should I write for the answer of in what capacity -----?

Thanks
1. How long have you had an acquaintance with the applicant?
2. In what capacity have you had an acquaintance with the applicant?

Both are stilted in AmE.
For instance if I write I have been his supervisor then what should I write for the answer of in what capacity --? --Use 'supervisor' for capacity and come up with something else for 'How well'. Produce a draft and I will comment on it.

Well,
Thank you very much, Sir.

Since there is a small space for writing how well? in that form so I can think of

1. Completely in touch

2. Quite well

3. Fully/well aware of his performance

4. completely

5. know perfectly well

Your time is highly appreciated

Kind Regards
Then use #3.
