Letters of complaint, job applications, thank you letters, letters requesting changes or – making suggestions – the list goes on and on. Encouraging children to write letters from an early age will improve their communication, social and handwriting skills, and teach them what they need to know about writing and structuring letters.

Write a letter to your younger brother advising him not to adopt unfair means in the examination.
Flat no. 73
East Guru Angad Nagar
June 17, 20XX
I received your letter yesterday. I am glad to know that your 1st term examination will be held on September. As there are a lot of news about the adoption of unfair means in the exams by the students. So I feel that I should give you some piece of advice. Unfair means in the examination is an offense. I do not support unfair means in the examination because it degrades the standard of education. If the students of a country do not acquire true education, there will be no development for the country. An examinee should read seriously so that he can cut a good figure in the examination. I hope that you will never adopt copying in the examination hall. With best wishes and love.

You are Ashok living at 7, Mall Road, Shimla. Write a letter to your friend Sushil to give an advice for taking part in games. Answer:
7, Mall Road
14th July, 20XX
Our friend Sharda tells me that you do not take part in games. You are a book – worm. You always indulged in books. Even in the evening you never stir out of your room. You never go to the play – field. You do not take interest in any game. You do not care to see the important hockey and football matches that are played in the local field. This is really very lamentable. Only books cannot make your life happy. So games are as important as books in life. Games teach us teamship, discipline and endurance. They makes us strong, healthy and active. I would, therefore, advise you to shake off your laziness and take part in outdoor games.

What a nice present you sent me! Five thousand rupees! Thank you very much for the gift. A big amount like five thousand rupees means a great deal to me. I long wished to buy a radio–set.

A radio – set of my choice may cost about Rs. 400/–. I should like to have some books. But what I want most is a table – watch. Now my examination is fast drawing near. Sometimes I need to get up very early. The table – watch may cost about Rs. 800/–, I like many other things. But these are the things I like most. I hope you are in the best of health.
