Student or Learner
For many years since leaving Sandbach Grammar School (in 1977) I've been using the same format for all of my letters. I'm new to this website and I've seen that there are no longer any 'indents' when using new paragraphs. I.e. - every new paragraph now begins from the furthermost left side of the page.
Another thing I've noticed is the new fashion for leaving a space between paragraphs.
Perhaps you could let me know if there are hard and fast rules? I'd like to write my letters correctly and in the latest 'proper' way but I'm a little unsure wether or not my old-school way of doing things is still valid.
Many thanks in advance,
