Last week’s lesson

In last week lessons on ‘Applying for a job’ students were finding it difficult to remember how to sign off letters.
The ‘Valediction’
Should it be ‘yours sincerely’ OR ‘your faithfully’ ?

One tip I gave them was:
‘You never have two ‘S’s together’.
An easy way to remember is you would never have Sir / Sincerely in the same letter of correspondence.

When the recipient’s name is unknown to you:
Dear Sir /Madam.. you use ‘Yours faithfully ‘

When you know the recipient’s name:
Dear Mr Hanson … you use ‘Yours sincerely

When addressing a good friend or colleague:
Dear Jack … Best wishes/Best regards

Addressing whole departments:
Dear Sirs … Yours faithfully
