When you write an email or a letter to a friend or family member, it is usually appropriate to write informally. Here are some informal words and expressions that can help you to begin and end your emails or letters in an informal way.

Formal email / letters start with Dear, but when you’re writing to a friend, you can be much more, well, friendly. You could try these ways of saying hello:

  • Hi, Hiya, Hey, Heeeeellllllllloooooo,

You may want to follow any of the above with your friend’s name, but always use a comma at the end.

Next, move down two lines and start with a capital letter, but what can you write here? Here are some suggestions:

  • This is just a quick email / letter to say…

It was great to hear from you.

Thanks for your email / letter.

Sorry I’ve taken so long to write back.

Of course, you then need to write the main body of your email / letter. When you get to the end, you could try finishing with one of these expressions:

  • Well, that’s all for now.

Give my love to everyone.

Don’t forget to write soon.   

followed by:

  • See you soon,

See ya soon, (ya is a very informal way of writing you)

All the best,

Lots of love,

and your name – don’t forget your own name – that’s very important!

So, the next time you’re writing an email or a letter to a friend, try using some of these expressions to set an informal tone.

Hello! My name is Kai, I am 23 years old, I am from Switzerland and I’m studying at Eurospeak in upper-intermediate level and I feel satisfied with the results. My conversation has improved a lot since the day that I arrived. Study in Eurospeak I think is one of the best things because you can get to know a lot of people.

One to One classes

cropped-f.pngOne-to-one English lessons are a perfect way to address your specific English learning needs. These classes are prepared specially for you. You can book one to one classes at any level and for as many hours as you wish.

It is also possible to combine one to one lessons with any other course that you are pursuing. Because it’s just you and your teacher, you can choose exactly what you want to concentrate on – this could be anything from intensive work on pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, speaking or listening, to more specialised areas like business or social English or exam preparation. As well as improving your personal weaknesses, one to one means that the teacher gives you undivided attention and you work more intensively, resulting in much faster progress than in a normal class
