Stating the Purpose of a Letter

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

Valentine’s Day is getting closer and it’s always nice to receive and write endearing letters to our family, friends and that special someone. However, sometimes it is difficult to express what you feel vocally and writing those feelings down can be a good option to structure your thoughts.

When you are about to tell someone something important, we often forget what we wanted to say or they ended up understanding a different meaning of our words. Luckily, when you write a letter you have the chance not only to think about it thoroughly, but also to edit the letter and make the needed corrections.

The first thing we must express is the purpose of the letter. This will prevent any misunderstandings about your intentions. After you make a little introduction wishing that person a Happy Valentine’s Day, you must write down why you are writing the letter. If you want to thank that person for their friendship or their support through difficult times you can start with that situation or a memory.

On the other hand, if you want to confess your love to a special person, you must be direct. You can start with the reasons you feel a certain way or explain how you came to realize your feelings. Whatever you choose, you must verify it’s quite clear and that it won’t be misunderstood as a deep friendship. You have to state your intentions clearly.
