Welcome to our free-to-use Q&A hub, where students post questions and get help from other students and tutors.

Follow the trail of responses and if you have anything to add please sign up or sign in.

You can ask your own question or look at similar English questions.

I would start by making a list of all of your hobbies and what you feel you as a person have got out of taking part in those hobbies and then structure the letter according to your strengths.

Hi Kat! Best thing is to keep your letter clear and concise, structuring sentences like this: 'I am interested in....'/'I am studying...'/'I enjoy...'. That way your English teacher can gain the information you wish to convey easily and quickly. I hope that is helpful. Good luck!

Hi Kat, great question! If you are writing a question to your English teacher about yourself you need to keep a " positive pitch". This means talking about yourself in positive terms in the first person and drawing attention to your strengths and good qualities. If you are highlighting areas of " weakness" you can refer to these of areas of personal development. Remember to demonstrate a growth mindset, focusing on where you want to grow. Hope this helps ! :) 

You can write the letter as following...

To (sir or madam)

My name is ___.I am __ years old.My father's name is __ and my mother's name is __.I am studying in __ class and in __ school.I live in __ town/city.

Now u include your hobbies,your likings and dislikings.You can also give what you want to become in future and why you want to become that.You can also give your favourite subjects and your co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

I hope the above information will be informative to you and you have learned a lot about me.

Yours faithfully/obediently,

(Your name)

Now the letter will slightly change in case of formal/informal letter.I have given you the general format.I hope it will be helpful to you.

Contact me if there is any other query.

Has she/he given you any guidelines about the letter? Is it a formal/informal letter?

Depending on the guidelines, you could could have something along the lines of..

You can also include anything relating to any interests you may have; hopes for the future, dislikes/likes and anything you might find a struggle or something you may feel confident in. Then finish the letter with something  along the lines of..

I'd say it depends on the purpose of your letter...is it for a piece of creative writing? If so, what level are you at?
