Learning to write effective letters is not some lost art but a skill you need to be successful in the workplace. Letters are among the most important writing you will do on your job. To write effective letters, you need to identify and analyze your audience and their needs, clearly establish your purpose, formulate your message and select the appropriate style and tone so to be reader-friendly and persuasive. Sending a hard copy letter continues to be the most formal way to communicate with your audience.

This course discusses the most frequently used types of business correspondence you will be expected to write on the job. Business letters can be classified as positive, neutral, or negative, depending on their message and the anticipated reactions of your audience. An inquiry letter asks for information about a product, service, or procedure. Businesses frequently exchange such letters. As a customer, you too may write a letter asking about a service or a special line of products, the price, the size, the color, delivery arrangements, or recent technological changes. The clearer your letter, the quicker and more helpful your answers are likely to be. Understanding the common types of business letters will enhance your ability to effectively communicate.

A letter to your friend and a cover letter for a job application are written very differently. Whether you work in business or are taking the general IELTS or CELPIP test, knowing the difference between informal and formal writing is a skill you should have. Watch this writing lesson, take our quiz, and check out our resource page to become a better writer. - Use the resource: http://www.engvid.com/english-resource/formal-informal-english/ - Take the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/writing-letters-formal-informal-english/ http://www.engvid.com/ TRANSCRIPT: Hello, my name is Emma, and in today's lesson we are going to learn about writing. What kind of writing? Writing letters. Okay? So this is important for people who work in business. It's also important for people who like to write letters to their friends maybe or to their grandparents in English. Also, it is very... It is a very useful video for anyone who is taking the general IELTS test. So if you're taking not academic, but general, this is an important video. And also, if you plan to immigrate to Canada and you want to do the Canadian immigration test which is called: "the CELPIP", this video is also... It will also be useful and helpful to you. Okay? So let's get started. What do I mean by "formal" and "informal"? "Informal" means something you would write to your friends, something you would write to your parents, - well, probably your parents unless you're afraid of your parents, then you might be more formal -, your classmates, your coworkers. Okay? So this is... It means it's not formal; it's for people you know well. On the other hand, "formal" English we use with strangers, we use with our boss, in the workplace, we use it in these different ways. So it's the English you really have to think about, whereas informal is kind of the relaxed English. So relaxed, serious. Okay? So, sometimes you will have to write a letter formally, maybe to your boss or your company, other times maybe you're on holiday and you want to write a letter to your friend, you'll use informal English. So what is the difference? Let's see. Informal English uses contractions. What are contractions? "Didn't", "wouldn't", "couldn't", "haven't", "hasn't". So if you see a verb with an apostrophe and then a "t", that is a contraction. Okay? It's very important to know this because in formal writing, you don't use contractions. "Didn't" would be: "Did not". I can write that for you. "Did not". Couldn't: could not, haven't: have not, can't: cannot. Okay? So that's one major difference. Another major difference between formal and informal writing is the use of idioms; the use of certain expressions. If I'm writing to my friend, maybe I'll say: "Oh, you know, I've been very under the weather lately." Meaning: I've been very sick. If I'm writing to my boss, I won't use idioms. If I'm writing a formal letter, I will not use idioms. Those aren't good to use in formal writing. Phrasal verbs, this is another thing we find in informal writing. What is a phrasal verb? It's a verb that has a preposition. Okay? So, for example: "find out", "find" is a verb, "out" is the preposition. "Go" is the verb, "up" is the preposition. So the... The preposition adds a different meaning to the verb. Phrasal verbs are very difficult to learn; we have so many of them in English. My students have told me phrasal verbs are one of the hardest parts of learning English, but it's possible, you can do it.

Format conveys message; know your company’s preference. Above all, no matter what format you use, your letter should not look lopsided, crowded, or spread out. Letter format refers to the way your letter looks on the page (whether in print on a screen) - where you indent and where you place certain kinds of information. The most formal, preferred, and frequently used business letter format in the world of work is the full-block, but you should also be familiar with the modified-block and the semi-block. A letter is as an indispensable tool of communication in business. Business letters are used to sell the products, make inquiry about customers or prices of goods, seek information and advice, maintain good public relation, increase goodwill and perform a variety of other business functions.

A letter contains many parts, each of which contributes to your overall message. The parts and their placement in your letter form the basic conventions of effective letter writing. Readers look for certain information in key places. A standard business letter can be divided into an introduction, a body, and a conclusion, each section responding to or clarifying a specific issue for your recipient.

There are many rules to follow when writing a formal letter, and here are the most essential. Step 1: Write your address Write your address 2 inches from the top of the page Do not include your name or title here. It will be included in the closing. Step 2: Type the date Type the date – month, day, and year – one line below your address Step 3: Type the recipient's address Type the recipient's name, title, and address one line below the date, flush left. Whenever possible, address the letter to a specific individual. Step 4: Type the salutation Type the recipient's personal title and full name in the salutation, one line after the recipient's address, flush left, followed by a colon. Leave one line blank after the salutation. Tip Use the recipient's full name unless you usually refer to the individual by a first name. Step 5: Compose the letter State the purpose of the letter in the first paragraph of the letter's body. In the following paragraphs, use examples to support your main point. In the final paragraph, summarize the purpose of your letter and suggest a suitable course of action. Do not indent the paragraphs; instead, leave an empty line between each one. Step 6: Close the letter Close the letter without indentation, leaving four lines for your signature between the closing and your typed name and title.
