Formal and Informal Language:

 Formal Language
In English, formal language is used in situations that are more serious or when we are
working in our professional domains, for example when you’re in a job interview, talking to
senior clients, handling customers, conversating with senior company officials or emailing
your university professor. It can also be used when you’re speaking to someone you don’t
know very well and want to make sure you sound respectful.
Formal language and informal language are associated with particular choices of grammar
and vocabulary. It is commonly used when we write speeches, lectures, during emails or
when acting within ones professional domain such as a business and engaging with company
officials or handling clients.

For example, if you were describing a trip you went on in a formal context such as an essay, you
might say something like:
“In BBA fourth semester, I got a chance to fortune my skills at a local NGO which is located in a
popular seaside town in the South of Pakistan. I am humbled to be given a chance to work in a
professional environment such as the one offered to me at this NGO and although my home is
next to a pebble beach, and despite the cloudy weather, the beach is always crowded with
sunbathers and families. One group nearly lost their picnic when a strong wind blew their
blanket and paper plates away.”

 Informal Language
Informal language is used in more relaxed, everyday situations. Of course, this includes
conversations with friends, family and other people you know well. Unlike many other
languages, though, most English speakers tend to use informal language with people they’ve
just met, too.
When it comes to Informal Language you can relax your grammar. You might use short or
broken sentences, everyday phrases or slang, and plenty of delaying, qualifying or correcting
expressions,
Contractions, relative clauses without a relative pronoun and ellipsis are more common in
informal language.

If we take the example of the above sentence and try explaining the above example to a
friend, we might say something like:
Oh, did I tell you that I got an internship?I got an internship in Karachi, it is really fun. I
mean, it was really cold and there’s no sand, just, you know, stones, but it was still pretty
good. All these people were trying really hard to sunbathe and have picnics and stuff, and
then there was this, like, big gust of wind and all the plates and blankets were flying
everywhere. So funny!”
