Formal vs. Informal Letters
In this lesson, we look at the differences between formal and informal letters.
In informal letters, we often have a bit of chit-chat before we write the purpose of our letter. Here are some expressions that you can use.
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.
