Endings for formal and informal letters

Last week, we looked at beginnings of different letters. This week let us look at the ending of the letter. Usually the ending last paragraph is just a reminder of what we write in the whole letter. It is usually a sentence or two to end a nice concise letter.

So, here we go with some of the phrases and sentences to help you with this last paragraph.

Informal letter endings:

1. Thanks for your help. (A letter to a friend in response to his support)

2. Please write soon. (suitable for all letter types)

3. I hope I didn’t cause you too much trouble. (for a letter asking for some help or favour)

4. If I can tell you anything else, please call me. (Information giving letter to a friend)

5. Hope this advice will be of some help to you.

6. I’m looking forward to seeing you both on this Saturday. (semi-formal or informal letter)

7. It would be lovely to see you again, please do your best to make it. (a letter of invitation to a friend)

8. I look forward to receiving the information requested.

Formal letter endings:

Usually formal letters end with longer sentences and they are exact point to point. You cannot use contractions as we do with informal letters.

1. I look forward to your prompt response.

2. Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further information.

3. Thank you very much for your cooperation and I hope to hear from you shortly.

4. I await your prompt response in anticipation.

5. I would be very grateful if you attend to this matter as soon as possible.

6. I trust that this situation will be rectified without further delay.

7. I feel confident that you will find something in our range that meets your requirements and look forward to receiving your order.

8. We would be extremely grateful if you allow us to……. Thank you very much in anticipation to your cooperation.

You can see that some of the sentences use certain words again. Similarly, you can create your own sentences but as usual you should go through this post again and again initially when you start preparing for the test.

That way you will naturally remember these sentences and use them automatically in your letters.

So, enjoy your process of learning.
