  • SERIOUS BUSINESS BY Queenie Ann Y. Ku
  • BUSSINESS LETTER • It is written with a specific purpose: to apply for a job, to make a request, to file a complaint, to introduce a product or a person, and so on. • The letter writer may communicate with an individual, a group of people, an organization, or a business entity.
  • CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD BUSINESS LETTER
  • COMPLETENESS • It contains all the information needed • The five W’s (what, where, who, when, why) and H (how) are contained in the letter
  • COMPLETENESS • It is also achieved if you indicate the complete name/s of the person/s you are writing to, his/her designation, his/her address, the date when the letter is written, and other details necessary for the addressee to understand the message.
  • CONCISENESS • It is being brief • You say what you want to say in a few words • A good business letter is limited to one page, if at all possible • It should contain all the important information your reader needs to know, no more than that
  • CONCISENESS • Conciseness is achieved by observing the following: 1. Eliminate wordy expressions 2. Omit the relative pronouns “that” and “which” and other unnecessary words in clauses whenever possible 3. Avoid overusing “ It is, It was, There is, There are, There was, There were” to begin your sentence 4. Avoid unnecessary repetition
