Escribir cartas y correos informales


Escribir cartas y correos informales


Escribir emails y cartas informales incluye escribir emails o cartas a amigos o familiares.

Cuando se escribe una carta o un email informal nuestro lenguaje es más relajado y somos capaces de utilizar abreviaturas, lo cual es raro en otras formas de redacción en inglés, excepto quizás al utilizar el estilo directo.

Algunas de las frases de abajo te pueden resultar útiles, sobre todo si eres un alumno de inglés como segunda lengua y vas a realizar un examen como el First Certificate Exam (CFE), Cambridge Advanced Exam (CAE), Cambridge Proficiency Exam (CPE) de Cambridge, o la Escuela Oficial de Idiomas en exámenes como EOI Intermediate 2, EOI Avanzado 1 or EOI Avanzado 2.

Escribir cartas o email informales- Pregunta tipo 1


Write 120-150 words in an appropriate style
Your Scottish friend, Maggie, has sent you an email asking you to help her organise a special surprise birthday party for her brother Rupert. Read Maggies email and the notes you have made. Then write an email to Maggie using all your notes..

We must make sure that Rupert doesn't know we are planning this surprise. I'm not sure how many people to invite but our house is definitely too small. Do you think we should book the Royal hotel for the evening and have the party there? You know that Rupert is very keen on music so we could hire a live band.
I've also been wondering what we could all buy as a present. What do you think?
Could you come the day before the party to help with preparations. There's a lot to plan so I'd really like your help. Can you suggest something else that will really make the party special?
All for now.
best wishes,
