Letter Opening and Closing

For a week we had a German examiner as a sub and she gave us a good opening and closing for a letter. She believes it would always help us and its really easy to remember. It's kind of short but still has all the information you need.

yeah, great... except, you still wont get full marks in the opening... you need to reference, in your opening, to something they have mentioned in theirs.... For example: if they said that they went on holidays to Italy and tried loads of Italian food; then what youve to do is something like this; 'Du hast ja ganz schónes Glúck: (and then quote what they said)' Translation - 'you are really lucky: that you went on holidays to Italy and tried loads of Italian food' p.s. there's an umlaut on the 'ó' and 'u'... similarly, in the closing, if they mention that they're going to, for example, look for a job; Viel Glúck mit (specific reference)..... etc. Hope that helps... :)
