language learning activity
(this section aims at providing students with opportunities to practise the language/vocabulary needed or become familiar with the background for the task that follows.
1. review the format of a letter with students, telling them that there are formal and informal letters. draw students’ attention to the salutation and the complimentary closing which usually indicate whether a letter is in a formal or informal style, as in dear sir/madam and dear danny: yours sincerely and love. bring in the two types of letters and show them to students.
2. have students read danny’s letter to the dairy. ask students whether it is a formal or informal letter and the reason for danny to have written a formal letter. explain to students under what circumstances and conditions a formal letter is more appropriate. play the recording: read. students listen and follow in their books.
