Lesson Plan - Functional Skills English Level 1 and 2 - The Difference between Formal and Informal Writing

When students write letters they often demonstrate confusion in tone.  They are prone to mix up the formal with the informal and the resulting letter can end up having little real functionality because of this.  This lesson plan enables students to:
  1. Identify formal and informal texts
  2. Identify purpose and audience of a text
  3. Select appropriate formal, informal or slang terms.

Many thanks to Jane Holloway of Lewisham and Southwark College for providing Functional Skills Forum with this wonderful lesson plan.
