Slide 8 - Open vraag

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

Slide 9 - Tekstslide


In order to introduce you to writing a good informal letter, let’s start with an example: 

Slide 10 - Tekstslide

What's important in a good informal letter? Type it here:

Slide 11 - Open vraag

1. The address
The address should only be added to a letter when you are not sure if the receiver knows your address. So don’t put it there when you’re writing to your father/mother. It is put in either the top righthand corner or the left-hand corner; you can choose.

Slide 12 - Tekstslide

2. The date
The date is put under the address (don’t forget to skip a line!). Unlike in Dutch, in English you write down the month in letters (don’t forget to capitalise the first letter!). Using a comma is optional, so it’s up to you. 

Slide 13 - Tekstslide

3. The salutation
Usually you start with “Dear ….”. If you know the person very well you can also use “Hey” or “Hi”. If you want to be a “Yo”, be a “Yo”! 

Slide 14 - Tekstslide

4. The body
Each paragraph should contain one idea and serves as a mini story.

Look at the example and you’ll see when it is natural to start a new paragraph.
• The first paragraph can be used for thanking someone, asking how someone is doing, telling them how you are doing, etc.
• The last paragraph is used to make arrangements, send regards to others
• The other paragraphs deal with the real subject matter of the letter; usually the reason why you are writing. This can be anything: a problem, a request, information, etc.

Slide 15 - Tekstslide

5. The complimentary close
Depending on who you are writing to, your close may range from “Kind regards”, “All the best” to “Love, hugs and kisses”. A P.S. may be added if you have forgotten to write something in the body. If you want to include a picture, you write “Encl.”/“Enclosed” underneath the letter. If your letter is longer than one page, you write p.t.o. (please turn over) at the bottom of the page.  

Slide 16 - Tekstslide

Now write a letter to your classmate. 
Choose a topic that is close to your heart. Be prepared to let your classmate read it & to read it out loud in class.
