Many people feel that writing in a formal manner is always preferred, but many times it is not appreciated by the reader because it can come across as cold and without feeling. Writing for a professional purpose lends itself to a formal writing style. Informal writing styles are often reserved for personal communications but can be used for business purposes. Emails tend to be less formal than paper letters, and text talk is even less formal. This selection of writing worksheets can help students understand the gap between the two forms of written communication.
