1.The format of Chinese letters is basically the same as English letters. The names of the recipients and the senders must be written.

和英文信件的格式大体相同。收信人和寄信人的名字必须要写出。

Before the names of the recipients, these adjectives can be added:

在收信人署名前可以加上这些修饰语:

“Respected” + “teachers or older people”

“敬爱的”+ 老师或者长辈

Or

或者

“Dear” + “close friends”

“亲爱的”+ 亲密的朋友

 

2.For the body part, leave blank spaces of TWO Chinese characters at the beginning of each paragraph. This is also the requirement of all formal Chinese writings.

正文的每段开头都要空两个中文汉字的空间。这也是所有正式的中文写作的必要要求。

 

3.The name of the sender of the letter: You can directly write down the name or add some adjectives before or after the name. For example:

寄信人署名:可以直接署名或者在名字前或名字后加上一些修饰,比如:

“XX(yours name)”+“敬上” → when you are writing to teachers or older or somebody you respect

“您的学生(your students)”+“XX(yours name)” → only when you are writing to your teachers

“想你的(who is missing you)” + “XX(yours name)” → only when you are writing to close friends or your partner

 

4.Date 日期

Different from the way that people write dates in English, the date in Chinese is written in the order of year-month-day.

和英文中写日期的习惯不同,中文的日期是按照 年-月-日 的顺序额排列的。

For example:

例如:2019年5月14日 = May 14th, 2019

 

However, the business writing of Chinese is different from writing the letters to friends, and we will introduce you some basic skills of business Chinese writing next time.

但商务中文的写作和写信给朋友有一些不同。下一次我们会教大家商务中文写作的技巧。
