4 Friendly Letter Purpose of a Friendly Letter A friendly letter (or informal letter) is a way of communicating between two people (sometimes more) who are usually well acquainted. There are many uses and reasons for writing a friendly letter, but usually friendly letters will consist of topics on a personal level. Friendly letters can either be printed or hand- written.

5 506 Country Lane North Baysville, CA 53286 July 16, 2007 Dear Susan It feels like such a long time since the last time I saw you. I know it's only been several weeks since I saw you. So far my summer has been great! I spend my all my weekends at the beach. I am getting a nice tan and you can no longer say I am paler than you. I have been playing lots of volleyball, surfing and building a nice collection of sea shells. Just this past weekend I took second place in a sandcastle building contest! On the weekdays I work. I drive an ice cream truck around and sell ice cream to the kids. It is so cool. It is a combination of the two things I love most, ice cream and kids. The pay isn't too great but I love the job so much. I hope the summer's been going well for you too. There's only a month and a half left in summer vacation and after that it's back to school. Would you like to meet up some time before school starts? Your friend, Signature P.S. John Austin says hi.

6 Writing a Letter... Your address usually goes in the top right hand corner. Put the date on which the letter was written in the format Month, Day, Year: e.g. August 30, 2003. Skip a line between the date and the salutation. Use Dear + your friend’s first name Usually the first paragraph of the body will consist of an introduction which will give the recipient an idea about what you're writing. The body of the letter will expand upon the introductory paragraph. You can use informal language, contractions: (I’ll, we’re…) through the development (body). End you letter with: Love, Love from, Lots of Love, Your affectionate for a close friend or a relation. Use: Best Wishes, Take Care for others.

7 P.S. : (post script) used when a person wants to add more information to a letter after they have already signed off.

8 Thank you Notes

9 Hi Aunt Kelly! Thanks for the new bike you bought me for my birthday; it's just what I wanted. The color red fits the bike well! It is my favorite color. I plan to ride it around my neighborhood everyday after school. I look forward to seeing you soon! Thanks again for the bike. Love, Signature

10 Writing a Thank you Note… Greetings: To start out the note, you should greet the recipient, e.g. "Hi Aunt Kelly!" Thank them: You should mention the gift/service and express your appreciation for it, e.g. "Thanks for the new bike you bought me for my birthday, it's just what I wanted." Mention something you liked: Mention a specific detail about gift/service, e.g. "The color red fits the bike well! It is my favorite color." Update them Update the recipient on your life pertaining to the gift/service, e.g. "I plan to ride it around my neighborhood everyday after school." Add a personal note: Add a personal note to the recipient, it doesn't have to be very long or detailed, e.g. "I look forward to seeing you soon!"

11 Thank them again: e.g. "Thanks again for the bike." Closing: End the letter with a simple closing followed by your signature on the next line, e.g. "Love, (Line Break) Your Signature“

12 Love Letter...

13 Writing a love letter... You should open up a letter with "Dear" if you are early on in the relationship, but if you are at a deeper stage, "My Beloved", or "To My One and Only" may be more appropriate. To start, write the first paragraph about how your lover makes you feel. In the next few paragraph write about qualities and characteristics you find appealing on him/her and back them up with specific examples. To close out the letter mention memories or experiences that you shared with your partner and tell your hopes for the future as well. Don't close your letter with "Sincerely", use, "With warmest regards" (if you are at an early stage of your relationship), "Love", "Yours always", "Your beloved" (if you are at a later stage of your relationship) or something else along those lines.

14 December 12, 2004 To My Beloved Caitlyn You are always on my mind, I can't stop thinking about you. The first thoughts when I wake, and the last thoughts before I go to sleep are of you. I am such a lucky guy to have found such a wonderful woman. I miss you so much, it has been too long since the last time I saw you. Your smile is so beautiful and magical. Every time that I think of your smile it lights me up inside. Even when I am having a really bad day, seeing you smile makes me want to smile too and it makes me forget about the previous events of the day. Caitlyn, you must be the most charming person on Earth. You seem to have an unlimited amount of patience and kindness. Every time I make a mistake you are right there to support me. The time that you drove 300 miles just to take care of my sick mother when I was away is just one example of your big heart. I have had such a great time with you no matter what we are doing. As long as you are around, even doing the most mundane activity is fun. I hope that we'll see each other everyday when I come back, I want to spend as much time with you as possible. I miss you so much. Love always, Signature
