Helping students understand the differences between formal and informal correspondence via email or letter is an important step toward helping them master differences in register required for writing in English. These exercises focus on understanding the type of language that is used in an informal letter by contrasting it with formal communications. Generally speaking, the main difference between informal and formal letters is that informal letters are written as people speak. There is currently a tendency in business communications to move away from formal writing style to a more, personal informal style.
