Writing letters

Our post – what's it all about?

Writing letters is fun and there is a lot to discover when you are learning how to write a letter. There are two main types of letters: personal letters and business letters. Personal letters are written to people who you know personally such as family and friends.

On the other hand, business letters are to people who you may not know personally. They can be to people in important positions who you should address formally and respectfully such as your principal, a local member of parliament or the CEO of a company.
