The art of writing letters is not a difficult art at all. The habit of writing letters makes one a good letter-writer. But in the beginning youngsters may find it difficult to write a letter to their relatives, to the school authorities for leave of absence or to a Government institution for a license or permit. Let us see how to write a letter to your class teacher for leave of absence for four days.
The Class Teacher Eighth Standard T.M.S. School 15, South Made Street Guduvancheri.
16th Oct. 2006 Sir,
As I have to go to Tricky to attend my brother’s marriage on the 18th instant I request you to grant me leave of absence from 17th October to 20th October.
Yours obediently, (Sad) S. Shankar
Now let us see how to write a letter to an uncle living abroad. Mr. Kuppusamy 24, Hunter Square San Jose
It is some time since we received a letter from you. I think of you now and then. But for your coaching for my examinations for the tenth standard I would have found it difficult to score good marks. It is only six months since you left India, but we feel that you have been absent from us for a long time. I am going to buy a computer soon. Then, it will be easy for me to send you e-mails often. Father, mother and sister are okay. I hope you are enjoying your stay in the US. Please write to us soon. Wish you all the best.
Yours affectionately (sad).
