Morning

I need to know how I start and end letters and what it means.

Like words "hi name", "dear name" more ... "sincerely" more ...

If u are writing a letter: start with
Quote:
Dear, name


End with
Quote:
Sincerely, the writer's name



By the way, it seems that ur name is on almost all of the forums. How many languages do u speak?

For a friendly letter you can start with "Dear name,"
For a more formal letter you can start with "Mr./Ms./Mrs. Name," or "Dear Madam/Sir Name" or if you're not sure who to address it to "To whom it may concern"

To end you can write "Sincerely, Name" "Best Regards, Name" "Cordially, Name" "Respectfully (Yours), Name"

Hope that gave you more options! =)

Make sure that the sincerely and your name are indented (moved over) more to the right side.

Your can also end a letter with "yours Faithfully" if you have no real connection with the person, i.e if reply to a phone bill etc
