A recap exercise where Functional English learners match the correct aspects of formal letter writing together and lay them out in letter format.

This could be printed out and laminated but I usually give my students a printout of the first pages and they cut out the text boxes and arrange them appropriately. I have included some red herrings such as incorrect text alignment and unsuitable salutations and closures.

I have included my suggestion of the correct layout on the third page.

I also use this with my Functional Skills ICT groups to encourage understanding of letter formats and working with text boxes.

Physical format: 
3 pages inc. answer sheet
