Note:
Greetings:
‘Greetings’ are words that we write at the beginning of a letter or email to address a person. It’s also called ‘Salutation’. For example, If you write to your friend you can use hello, dear, dear friend, Hey there, etc. If you write to your teacher you can use ‘Dear madam/sir’. So, which greetings you will use depends on your relationship with the receivers. ARSHI’S LETTER
Body:
‘Body’ contains the message of a letter or email. It should be simple, clear, and direct. The language of the body can be formal or informal. Again, it depends upon your relationship with the receivers.
Closing remarks:
‘Closing remarks’ are expressions that come at the end of the letter/email. It is a polite way to end your message. We write the closing remarks right before our name. The common closing remarks are sincerely yours, love, best, kind regards, etc. Like greetings and body, which closing remarks you will use depends on your relationship with the receivers.
