Formal language is less personal than informal language. Most of the formal words/phrases are long. They don’t use contractions. Many people often use the informal language when communicating. They use the language in writing emails, comments in social media, and a lot more because it is casual and spontaneous.

Read the examples below and know if the words you are using everyday are in the formal or informal form/style.

By using the informal language doesn’t mean that the sentences that you are constructing are unacceptable. It follows the grammatical rules too. The formal and informal are the two styles that can be used in different situations or occasions like when you are in a job interview, talk on the phone with your friends, etc.
