In English, informal letters are much more "laid back", but there are still one or two things you should remember. Learn how to write letters to friends, relatives and people you know!
Before the age of electronic communication, handwritten letters were a precious means of communicating with people who were far away. A handwritten letter might accompany a parcel or some photos. Sometimes a letter would be folded with a pressed flower inside, or a newspaper clipping or other item of interest.
Many of these functions have now been taken over by apps, so people send interesting links, emoji, stickers and gifs instead of news clippings, lockets of hair and pressed flowers. However, a handwritten letter has the advantage of being physical. You first hold the letter, which later your recipient holds; the letter itself holds your personal touch, your handwriting.
So, if you ever do decide to send an informal letter to family or friends, what are the rules? This quiz is here to help!
