  • Address and Date

    The primary and foremost thing that one does while letter writing is putting the date and the own address. The date should be fully written in order as the month then the day of the month and then the year at last. For example, “August 24th, 2020”.

  • Greetings

    Leaving two lines of space after the date and the address respectively, one should greet the person to whom the letter is being directed. Greetings are meant not only to address a person politely but to alert the person while reading the letter too. It has psychological significance. There should be a respectful tone like, “respected grandfather” while addressing elders and a polite tone while addressing the young ones or friends like, “dear Martha”.

In the introduction, first one should ask how the addressee must be doing in life and write about oneself too. Then the thing remains is to let the person know the purpose of writing the letter. In very comprehensive and simple words, the purpose should be mentioned.

A good body of a letter fulfils the whole process of communication. Here you express through words, all your feelings of grief, joys and worries with the reasons behind them.

  • Concluding the letter

    Right after the body of the letter is done, one is required to start concluding the letter from the very next line. The conclusion should sound like one is done with informing about the thing regarding which the letter was being sent. It should again be polite and humble.
