    Smile Re: formal & informal letters

    The difference is who you are writing to. If, for example, you are writing to a friend, you will tend to use an informal level of language. On the other hand, if you wish to write to a bank director, then you will use a formal level of language.
    Layout, style and register are the key factors to take into consideration when writing letter in English.
