Grammar homework – Due Friday 8th December

This week, we would like the children to look at standard formal English and some of the language and the grammatical conventions that go with it. To prepare them for this, we would like the children to convert this informal letter into a formal one, using formal language and grammatical structures.

Alright Dave!

How’s it going? Whatcha been up to? I aint done nothing all week cos I has been well poorly.

Coupla days ago, I ate a dodgy burger. It tasted rank. A few hours later, I was chucking up everywhere. It was grim! I bet you is glad you wasn’t there mate!

Anyhow, gotta dash.

Laters mate!

    On this formal letter it doesn’t make sense because on the title it Dear Dave
    and it doesn’t have a address on the top right and the date at the bottom also it doesn’t have Yours Sincerely at the bottom of the page and who is Written by so here is how it is suppose to be like.
