This is an interesting one. 

I would prefer to talk to my boss in person. Because I believe talking helps avoid confusion that may happen if you write or speak on the phone. 

I think it is important to talk about everything that you have in your mind and heart. Don't talk aggressively but peacefully deliver the message. Remember your words are your weapons, use them diligently, as your job history and feedback are always important. But yes, don't simply shy off from saying what you want to say because keeping things in your heart impacts you and only you. 

So talk it out in style but peacefully for secured job feedback.

 I was able to know talking helps avoid confusion that may happen if I write or speak on the phone. 

And I think very important to talk about everything that my mind and heart too. 

I was given courage by you.✨

Thank you.

Well, both email and phone are not good options. They will make you appear unappreciative of the opportunity you were given. But if those are the only two options available, i would go with email. Since it is official and can be documented. 

Just as @nidh2382 said, it is better to have a face-to-face conversation with your boss or immediate supervisor to explain your feelings and thoughts. That way, s/he may ask questions that may nudge you or prompt you to think twice about your decisions.

I guess so.

email is official and I think my boss can check the contents at his timing.

But It's also important to try to have a face-to-face conversation with my boss .

It was helpful.☺️

Thank you.

I feel like if you were to do it by e-mail, it is like breaking up with someone over a text message. That is tacky and disrespectful. If you were to do anything by e-mail, it should come after you quit your job and just sending a letter of appreciation. 

As for quitting over the phone, I think this depends on the job and the position. If you work at a place like McDonald's and are a low-level worker, I don't think it is a big deal. If you are a manager, however, it is in bad taste. 

The best approach really is to do it in person. Talk to your manager, express that you are not happy for whatever reason (pay, hours, or you have other options), and let them know you appreciated the job but need to work elsewhere. Sometimes you might be offered a higher paying salary or the option to move up in the company to a better position as well. This also helps if you are quitting and still looking for other work, your former employer is more likely to give you praise and recommendation to future places you apply to.

There are many disadvantages to emailing…

I'll be careful.

However, if I directly communicate can create opportunities.

Thank you.

An email can be a good precursor, but you still have to do it in person.

Your boss is human. He or she needs a valid explanation. The only way to do this is in person 

Remember, it's your life. Your decision. Summon up the courage and do it face to face. You'll feel so much better

There is a Hungarian saying, "Escape is shameful but useful."

It means, "Even if it's an embarrassing way to escape, it's important to survive."

I don't know what's best, but I hope it works.

Sorry for my poor English.

I had heard that saying before, but I didn't really know what it meant.

It is true that sometimes it is necessary to take it easy and run away when things get tough.

Thank you  for your nice English.

Depends on the job I think. If it's, say, an online job for example, then I would say through the phone. It's best to be direct, and I think it's more direct to just phone them up and say your goodbyes and thank them for the time working there. Doesn't have to be anything major, just let them know you're quitting. 

Now, if it's for a job where you go in person, I think it's more respectful to go to the boss in person, face to face and let him/her know you're quitting or leaving is a better way of saying it. Depending on the job, I imagine more employers accept that people will quit, they will find someone else to take the job. So I also wouldn't worry about them.

If I am firm in my decision, I may just tell him the requirements and thanks.

I'm sure there are plenty of people who can take my place.

Maybe I don't need to a lot of worry about it.

Thank you.
