Abstract
For those people who have just graduated from high school and become a major of Business English in a college, and who have just started a job involving dealing with correspondence in English, they have to know the fact that it`s not easy to use English language to write a letter in a concise manner with appropriate expression and correct format. There`s a huge difference between writing a business letter in English and writing a composition in English. The impression given to the reader by style of language and structure of text has a direct influence on the business of the company. The most of the companies which require their staff to write business letters in English usually have foreign trade business, or are government organizations, therefore, every letter they write is important! A well-written business letter in English may lead to a huge transaction, or an agreement of cooperation in certain business areas between two countries; a badly-written business letter, however, may lead to a big financial loss. The discussion in this paper will include the basic principles of writing a business letter in English, with the hope to help the younger learners to improve their writing skills.
