I would like to know if I can say "We can meet on Monday or Tuesday" in email as a reply to a sales person's email asking for a couple of days options for an online meeting -- a sort of Skype call. I am asking if the word meet is appropriate here and I welcome suggestions for a better reply to this email.

  • Just call it a "Skype meeting" if you want to be specific. Or "Lync meeting" or "Webex" or ... whatever you use. – Jim Feb 5 '16 at 4:06
  • If you want to sound more formal, you could consider using video conference, online conference, web conference, web meeting... – user140086 Feb 5 '16 at 4:18

    One thing you could do is review the websites of WebEx, GoToMeeting, FreeConference, and other conference services and see what terminology they use. – choster Feb 5 '16 at 4:24
  • We use WebCon, V-Con or Webex to refer to online video conferences in our organization. – BiscuitBoy Feb 5 '16 at 4:46

It depends on who you're talking to. Between friends, it's okay to use meet. At work, meet will be understood but will sound informal. I agree with previous comments. You can just use video/online meeting/conference, Skype meeting, etc.

I attend English class via Skype and we use: "Let's meet tomorrow" or "Are you available to Skype tomorrow?" These sound really informal. Just use what is appropriate for the situation and the person you are talking to.
