Slide 6 - Woordweb

Writing an informal letter/email may sound like a game without rules, but it’s not. When you write to a friend or a family member, it doesn’t mean there are no rules. The only thing is that there are fewer than in a formal letter/email.

Slide 16 - Tekstslide

Slide 17 - Tekstslide

What to keep in mind while writing:
  • language

  • spelling

  • grammar

  • punctuation

Slide 18 - Tekstslide

Spelling
Spelling is extremely important in a letter/email. Other people will get a bad impression of you when your writing is full of errors. So use a spelling control (UK) when you write on a pc or a dictionary when you write on paper. 

Slide 19 - Tekstslide

Grammar
Likewise, grammar mistakes will distract the receiver from enjoying your letter. Use the correct word order and tense.

Slide 20 - Tekstslide

punctuation
Punctuation is another thing to notice (and use). Although some people talk without ever stopping, a comma is generally used wherever you would normally take a breath. In other words, in longer sentences there should always be a comma. A question needs a question mark (?) and when you make something specific you use a colon (:).
