FORMAL LETTERS

Formal letters are those written to official figures or people in official positions. This is why it is correct to say that a formal letter is one written to an office rather than to a person. A formal letter is largely in personal. There is usually no room for personal greetings, exchange of ideas etc. You go straight to the matter you want to discuss. In effect, formal short, as the following letter illustrates.

Informal Letters

These are letter written between close acquaintances, e.g. from a brother to his sister, from a man to his wife, from one student to another, from a colleague to another. As a result of the familiarity or love which exists between the two sides, there is usually enough room for almost anything that can be discussed by two people. So, the letter often opens with greetings to the recipients, his family, his friends etc. in addition, the language is very close to the colloquial , often with slang and other types of words which are normally used b the two sides.
