The conventions and forms of letter-writing differ in every language, so they are a reflection of the way different cultures organize their messages. I have divided information about writing into three parts: the opening, body and the ending of the letter. Each one of these sections is divided into informal and informal forms.

I very much appreciate your help and instruction Marco. I like the kisses and hugs. Maybe it makes me feel more loved than I really should, but that's ok. :)

That was helpful. Thanks. 


You might want to look over your chart of openings again though because I think a couple of the lines got misplaced so you have Querido Pedro next to Estimada and Querida Jessica next to Estimado. 


I have a question: How usual is it to have an italki friend quickly sign off with "besos" or "abrazos". In English that usually would be a sign of real friendship and intimacy. Are those expressions used more readily in Spanish than in English or am I just lucky to have gotten some real love pretty fast here?


Again, thank you.

Buen trabajo y muy útil Marco! Ahora estoy estudiando en Argentina y acá he visto que la gente también usa "besos" o "un gran beso" para terminar una carta a la familia o a un amigo (más entre las chicas jaja).

Really useful. Sometimes I need to write e-mails in Spanish at work and I am never sure about what to write in openings and endings. Thanks
