    Letter tips? geographing

    Any tips for the letter that could help to go from C standard to B?

    I know the address, date, querida/o and know the tenses fairly well.

    Any sentences or anything i could throw in there for a few extra marks ?

      prepare a good intro and outro for the letter and learn it off well... make sure you have everything spelt right, the examiner would be impressed since the intro and outro wraps up the letter
