    I'm not a teacher, but a postcard is simply a small piece of card, normally with a photograph on one side and space for writing on the back. It is usually sent as is, without being put into an envelope. A letter, on the other hand, is written on a piece (or many pieces) of paper, and is normally mailed in an envelope.

    Stuart is right but notice, co2, that some people mail a postcard in en envelope if they do not want others to see what is written on the back. It does not change anytihng though. It is stil a postcard

    so, this is the difference between them. I send the letter any time but the post card according to the occasion, is that right?

    could you tell me about those occasions that I should send a post card not a letter?

    Postcards are often sent as holiday souvenirs. The most common reason for sending them is to give the recipient a photo of some place the sender has visited with a brief message on the back. That's why popular tourist destinations have many stands and stalls selling postcards, so that the tourists can buy a card and send it to friends or family saying "I was here."
