Question

Do I have to indent each paragraph in an email?

I’d thought that no indentation is needed, that everything is simply flushed left. Some books say indent, some books say don’t have to indent.

Thank you. 

 

Answer

There is a need to indent in Primary school. Well, at least as of 2015 when I was in P6. That’s what my teacher told us to do. My PSLE results didn’t seem wrong either.

However, there is no need to indent in Secondary school. A change which I never understood.

I think asking your teacher is the most reliable way still.

No need, flushed left

Hi, No indentation needed, if I understand you correctly. If in doubt, check with your school teachers; different books have different target audience. The below quoted from a website (lilbutmightyenglish) I discovered.  

Format: To the left, to the left!
Remember that all parts of the writing are flushed to the left except for the beginning of a new paragraph.
