English – The lighthouse


Today we will be looking at Formal and informal language because this will help use when writing our newspaper article.


What is Formal language?


Formal language is the language we use in professional, official and impersonal situations. It is used when we need to be serious, when we don’t know our audience personally and when the topic is important.


We will be using formal language in our newspaper articles.


Task 1:


Wednesday worksheet 1 (Lighthouse Resource 3a) shows examples of sentences written in a Formal and informal way. Complete the last four boxes to make formal sentences.


Task 2:


Next, choose one of the letters from Wednesday worksheet 2 (Lighthouse Resource 3b) and re-write the letter using formal language and sentence structures.
