In Igbo language, letters can normally be composed the same way they are composed in English language. The salutation, attention, closing remark, signature, etc., on average they are the same in formula but the only difference is that the letter is written in Igbo language.

Dear Uche Igboaha,

How are you doing and your family? I am sure everything is okay?

The reason why I am writing this letter is that I want to come home for Christmas. I would like you to come and wait for me on 15 December at the Port Harcourt airport for my arrival at 4.45pm.

I will write to you again when the time is nearer .

Goodbye...

Your brother
Johnson Igboaha
