Today's grammar activity focuses on something that we find tricky in year 6 - the difference between formal and informal language. Watch the video below to remind yourself of the difference and how to tell when the formal or informal tone is being used and in which situations each type of language is most appropriate.


Formal English and informal English

Now you've reminded yourself of the difference and how to spot whether formal or informal language is being used, try the questions below. Either print out the sheets or answer the questions in your workbook.
