    Hello,


    Ben came to visit our flat as we are looking for a flatmate.

    I sent an email to Ben saying that do not hesitate to give me a shout for further information.


    Can I say that? Is there a better way of saying that?


    Thank you

    do not hesitate is formal
    give me a shout is very informal

    so there is a slight clash in the sentence, but I understand perfectly.

    you might like to say
    Don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any further information.
    :)

    Thank you.

    If I use to give a shout. What would I say?

    He would be our flat so I can talk casual.


    Thank you

  4. You either have to change punctuation or something.... I sent an email to Ben telling him NOT TO HESITATE about giving etc etc...
    Or: email saying: DO NOT hesitate

    give me a shout if you need anything
    works well

    you might hear native speakers saying

    'gimme a shout'

    Don't worry about giving me a shout if you need more information (info)
    There's no problem in you giving me a shout if you need more information

    I sent an email to Ben telling him not to worry about giving me a shout if he needs more info

    Wait for natives though
