English letter to my teacher about me

How do I write a letter to my English teacher about myself?

I'd say it depends on the purpose of your letter...is it for a piece of creative writing? If so, what level are you at?

Has she/he given you any guidelines about the letter? Is it a formal/informal letter?Depending on the guidelines, you could could have something along the lines of..To My name is _ and I am _ years old. I live in _ and live with_. I am aspiring to become a _ and in order to do this I am studying the following subjects at_ _. I have various hobbies which include. You can also include anything relating to any interests you may have; hopes for the future, dislikes/likes and anything you might find a struggle or something you may feel confident in. Then finish the letter with something  along the lines of..I hope that this letter has been an informative read for you and you have learned more about me. Regards (or your own chosen way of signing off)_ Hope this helps?

Hi Kat, great question! If you are writing a question to your English teacher about yourself you need to keep a " positive pitch". This means talking about yourself in positive terms in the first person and drawing attention to your strengths and good qualities. If you are highlighting areas of " weakness" you can refer to these of areas of personal development. Remember to demonstrate a growth mindset, focusing on where you want to grow. Hope this helps ! :)

Hi Kat! Best thing is to keep your letter clear and concise, structuring sentences like this: 'I am interested in....'/'I am studying...'/'I enjoy...'. That way your English teacher can gain the information you wish to convey easily and quickly. I hope that is helpful. Good luck!

I would start by making a list of all of your hobbies and what you feel you as a person have got out of taking part in those hobbies and then structure the letter according to your strengths.

Hi Kat, this might be a little late for you, but I would say this depends on the guidelines and needs of the teacher and what level you are at. I would try to be quite open whilst using many different descriptive words, perhaps use a thesaurus to extend your vocabulary. If you are looking more at creative writing perhaps find a theme and try to establish some inner meanings and questions for yourself as you go through.

How to write broadsheet articles

How do you go about writing a Broadsheet article?

A broadsheet article reports the facts and details of an event, without an author's opinion (as would be the case in a tabloid newspaper). In general, they are unbiased but this is often not the case in real newsprint. The idea is for the reader to form their own opinion based on the given information Before you start writing you need to think who your audience is and who the article is aimed at, use the who, what, where, when, why and how format in your opening then concentrate on the important information in the main section of the article The article should be written in complete sentences, using formal language, and be broken up in to sections to help the reader navigate the article. The article would usually be about something serious and newsworthy, including current affairs, rather than commenting on popular media and celebrities. Don’t forget to add a title, date, and author’s name to the article. The title should also be formal and to the point, avoiding puns or jokey headlines as in tabloids. The first thing when writing a newspaper article is to find some event worth reporting on. A newspaper article, as others have said, reports the facts and details of an event.  As you might expect, there is no rising action, falling action or climax – this is not a story, this is the fact. Begin with the most important, critical points of the article. For example, Yesterday night around 11 pm, a man, George Bluth, 41 was shot in front of Parker Square Mall.  Police responding to the scene of the shooting cordoned off a small area near the doors of the mall, and did not respond to questions. Mr. Bluth was taken to the St. Catherine’s Memorial Hospital, and is currently in stable condition. According to Mrs. Bluth, George was walking home from a night with friends, and the police say that he was attacked by several youths…You should progress through the story, and each paragraph should contain less important facts than the paragraph before. As many others have said, you should use formal language as I have above.  Instead of “I asked the police…”, you should write “police reported that…” and so on.

Below is the structure and features of a broadsheet article:


Emphasis on important global/national news, political, economic, social and cultural issues. Covers politics, finance, and current affairs. Often has a sports supplement.


Few photographs, A2 size, black/white. Frontpage should be more informative, about public issues. The design emphasizes content through detailed articles in small print, with some emphasis on photographs and restrained use of color.  


It should be informative, factual, serious language, black/white.  


Formal language, highly researched, factual details, neutral and unbiased, small print. Varied types of sentences. Emphasis on the information.
