The message

THE MESSAGE

  • The style and vocabulary is formal.

  • Never use colloquial language,slang or technical jargon.

  • Avoid using contracted forms (I'm; you're; haven't; hasn't; ...)

  • Be polite. If you want something, use indirect questions (eg "Could you please send me ..." instead of "Please send me ...".

  • Make sure you divide the text into logical paragraphs.


Concluding comment and complimentory closing

CONCLUDING COMMENT AND COMPLIMENTORY CLOSING

At the end use:"I look forward to hearing from you (soon)."

Thisis more formal (andsuitable) than:

"I'm lookingforward to hearing ... ."

Follow by:

  • "Yours faithfully" if you don't know the addressee's name (and began with "Dear Sir / Madam") or

  • "Yours sincerely" if you have the contact name (and began with "Dear Mr / Mrs /...").


Your signature and name

YOUR SIGNATURE AND NAME

  • Always remember to sign your letter in pen and type your full name underneath your signature.

  • You may include your academic degree(s) at your name, but don't use them in your signature.
