    In English as a second language in informal letters,should I use simple vocabulary or it will indicate that I have poor vocabulary? I’m really confused because all people are contrasting each other, so if you know please help (:
    Thank you

    • Hi Karen,

      You can still use various vocabulary in informal letter. For example, instead of saying “I can’t stand him”, you can say “I can’t tolerate his behaviour”. You must be ware not to use colloquial language in informal letter.
