Formatting: Letters

Posted by Kenina Ingram on November 21, 2018 at 7:20 AM

We receive many requests for information on formatting letters. The actual format is less important than the content; however, the format can remind you what is necessary in a letter. Of course, if you are using a school or company letterhead, that will replace your personal address.

Here are three sample formats for letters. The first two are equally acceptable for business or official letters and the third is for a personal letter. In any of them, the sender’s address and the date can be on the top right or top left.

 Business Letter


Official letter


Personal Letter-1

At ILS, language testing is personal.

Language is an interactive and social skill. Therefore, we believe English should be taught and tested similarly.

ISLPR Language Services (ILS) developed the ISLPR® Test because we saw the need for a test that examined your real-life language. The ISLPR® Test is an interactive and personalised test. As the ISLPR test is personalised for each candidate, there are no tricks to pass the test. 

Why we're different:

  • We test your speaking, listening and reading skills in a one-to-one interview.
  • The content of your test is customised to match your area of expertise.
  • The ISLPR is the shortest English test, therefore minimising the chance of fatigue.
  • We offer individual English tutorials with accredited tutors.
  • We offer a feedback service so you can find out why you got that rating in your test.
