Many people prefer to send e-mails or texts instead of letters. Yet, sometimes writing and sending a letter is important. Today’s conversation topic for English learners is “Mailing Letters”. Imagine you’re in the United States of America and you’re having conversations in English about mailing letters. What would you do and say? What would others say? Here are a few suggestions:
— You’re at a post office, waiting in line to send your letters because you don’t have any postage stamps available. What would you say? What would the postal employee say?
— You’ve just had an interview and your room mate suggests you send the employer a formal thank you letter. What would you tell your room mate? What would your room mate tell you?
— You’re talking with your family about Uncle Joe, who lives far away and has no e-mail or phone. You want to invite him to come for Thanksgiving. Your family suggests you write him a letter. What would you tell your family? What would your family tell you?
Writing letters is much more formal and personal than writing an e-mail or a text. People really appreciate when you put the effort of writing a letter.
