FCE - Writing

 
  Informal Transactional Letter  
     
  Make sure you include the information from all the prompts in your composition in an appropriate way, if you don't know the meaning of one of the prompts then make an educated guess and put it in your own words, never just copy the prompt and never leave it out.

Remember that if you are responding to a letter you have received then you definitely know the name of the person you are wriitng to (even if the name isn't given to you) Use your imagination to come up with a good name.

Remember you shouldn't put their surname at the beginning or your surname at the end, it's an informal letter.
