There are few formal letter samples which you can send via email or snail mail. Here we chose couple of the most popular.
When writing a formal letter form is as important as the text. You ought to be very careful, since you need to leave a good impression from the very beginning.
Making mistake when you need to sound and look serious might be unforgivable in some instances.
Pay a special attention to salutations and signature. Remember, you are not writing to a friend. Also, avoid “To Whom it May Concern”. Try to find out what is the name of the person in charge.
