FCE - Writing

 
  Informal Letter  
     
  When you are writing an informal letter (to a friend, a cousin, a penfriend, your uncle ...) remember to use a friendly, chatty and conversational style with your grammar and vocabulary but don't forget it must also be divided into paragraphs.

Remember that you will get credit for using more than one way of saying something, for example if you are making suggestions use different ways of suggesting things although you must make sure you use the correct style  for each suggestion.
