    Question Writing a letter

    Hello everyone,

    I have one question about writing a letter.

    Today I have learned in School, that the salutation in English letters comes at fist, and after that the subject line

    Is that right?

    (In German letters we use at first the subject line and then the salutation.)

    Thanks in advance,
    Dany
