Hello again guys, you’re welcome to “Ansmyques blog” short for answer my question. This post was based on demand, so I insist writing on it, has you know on our blog here yeah? what we do is to give information and educate our readers. If you also have any Topic you’d like us to work on, you can drop it in the comment section and I assure you, we will definitely feature your topic on this blog. so for this reason and without futher ado let’s get into it.

Traditionally, there are two types of Letters, this of course are FORMAL LETTER and INFORMAL LETTER, and their traditional definition goes;

  • Formal Letter : These are letters written to organisations,  company, societies, government institutions and so on which must be strictly to the point of demand 
  • Informal Letter : These are letters written to friends, family, relatives,  Neighbour or any other known close persons which may or may not be strictly based on point of demand. It accommodate alot of pleasantries I.e greetings, love and familiarise of different kind.
For the purpose of this post we’re just going to be talking about a type of “Formal letter” which is “Application letter”, talking about types of formal letter, these include;
  1. Letter to Government institutions
  2. Letter to Principal of a secondary school 
  3. Letter to one’s boss in office
  4. Letter to cooperative society 
  5. Letter to local government 
  6. Letter to company 
  7. Letter to organisation 
  8. Application letter and so on

Just as you know already that every letter must contain five (5) segment, so as an application letter too, and this segment include the following;

  1. Writer’s adress (at the right/left top corner as the case may be)
  2. Receivers adress ( at the left down corner of the letter)
  3. Salutation (just after the receiver’s address)
  4. Idea of the letter (after the salutation)
  5. Body
