Here are some useful phrases/expressions to use when writing informal letters.

TO BEGIN THE LETTER:

·      Thank you for your letter. It was great to hear from you.

·      Sorry, I haven’t written for so long. I’ve been really busy just recently.

·      I thought I’d better write and let you know that…

·      This is just a short note to tell you that…

TO END THE LETTER:

·      That’s about all my news. Do write soon and let me know what you’ve been doing.

·      Once again, thanks very much for all your help…

·      I’m (really) looking forward to seeing you on…

·      Give my love to…

TO APOLOGISE:

·      I’m really sorry that we couldn’t come to your party on Saturday, but unfortunately both of us had really bad flu.

TO INVITE SOMEONE:

·      Why don’t you come and stay with us next weekend?

·      We’re having a few friends for dinner on Friday night and we were wondering if you and Paula would like to come.

TO RESPOND TO AN INVITATION:

·      Thanks for the dinner invitation. Paula and I would love to come.

·      It was really kind of you to invite us for the weekend, but I’m afraid we’ve already arranged to go and see Jill’s parents in Scotland.

TO MAKE A REQUEST:

·      As you know, our car is at the local garage at the moment, and I was wondering if there was any chance that we could borrow yours while you are away next week?

·      One of the reasons why I am writing is to ask a favour. Do you think you could find out how much a reasonable hotel would cost for bed and breakfast for two people for one night?

TO CONGRATULATE SOMEONE:

·      Congratulations on getting the job! Does this mean you will be moving up north?

·      Well done on passing your driving test first time! All you need now is a car!

·      Jim and I just wanted you to know how pleased we were that you did so well in your university exams.
