In these days of Email, Facebook and Instagram, many of us have relaxed our formal writing style – in many cases a little TOO much. Bearing in mind that in France, some  formal letters are considered legally binding, the French still place a great deal of importance on a well-constructed and presented letter

Visit the site for a variety of models of sample letters and contracts in French to help you deal with most ordinary and some extraordinary day to day situations.

Complaining, applying for a job, CVs, insurance and bank enquiries, cancelling a contract….

Remember that if you want to be fairly sure of receiving an answer to important correspondence and official letters, they should be sent “accuse de reception”, (by registered post), to provide proof that the letter has been received.

Delivery in person does not count ‘officially’, even though you may hand your letter over yourself.
