    Default official letter

    This refers to addressing the teacher of an online course.
    Is it appropriate if I address the teacher as Hello so and so (only the first name)

    Default Re: official letter

    If first names are used on the course, then it's fine for most uses, but in an official letter, I would use Dear Mr/Ms + surname.
