Formal vs. Informal Letters

In this lesson, we look at the differences between formal and informal letters. 

Useful expressions

How are you?
How have you been?
I hope you’re well.
What’s been happening with you?
How are the kids?
How’s the family?
How’s life? Have you been up to much recently?
I’m sorry it’s been such a long time since I last wrote.
Thought I’d just send a short letter to find out how things are.
I’ve been meaning to write for ages.
