E-mail a Friend

So-so or Great? Communicate!

How did you like La Bamba? Have you ever had an experience like Manuel's? Use your e-mail program to send an e-mail to a friend, telling him or her about the story and your reactions to it. Remember to use the e-mail tips on this page when you write your message.


  1. Type a title in the subject line.
  2. Keep your paragraphs short so they're easy to read. Skip a line between them.
  3. Don't use all capital letters. In e-mail, this is like shouting at someone!
  4. Follow the rules of good writing.
  5. Proofread your e-mail before sending it.
