INFORMAL LETTERS
General tips
Use contractions: "We'd love to see you."Use 'really' for emphasis: "We're going to have a really good time."You can have incomplete sentences: "Great idea! Fantastic! Can't wait to see you."Use "get": "get home", "get bored", "get sick", "get back", "get away", "get a present"Short questions are fine: "What do you think?" "Will it be expensive?"
