Приклад написання неофіційного листа:
Hello Denis,

  I’m writing to share my experience of attending English courses in London. I just can’t find the words. It was the most amazing one I’ve ever done.

  To start with, there were ten students in my class. All of them were from different countries. We had 6 classes per day and a lot of free time for additional activities like seeing the sights or just hanging around. Our first class was about tenses in the English language. We did listening, reading and writing and now I find it easier to decide which tense to use.

  As you can see, my first impression was definitely positive. Moreover, all the people were extremely friendly and we spent beautiful time together. We would go walking every evening, we shared our life experience and everybody was quite enthusiastic to hear each other’s stories.

  In addition, our teacher had a nice approach to make us all engaged. Just imagine: she speaks six foreign languages and is always ready to give hands-on examples of different rules. It helps learn them faster. She gave us lots of fully videos to watch and some games to play. As a result, we learned new stuff with hardly any effort. That was fantastic.

  Hope next year you will be able to join the courses as well and we would have some more common memories to share.

   I can’t wait to hear about your summer. Write me back soon.
  Best wishes,
   James

Лист написаний моїм студентом Кисіль Максимом (з незначними правками), якому дякую за згоду на публікацію.
