500 Formal and Informal Words List PDF

Every English learner needs to learn Formal and Informal words and the situations these words are suitable to use in. We have compiled a huge list of formal and informal words that can help learners differentiate easily.

First thing first, let’s try understand what is a formal and informal word. Formal words are used in official communication in both oral or written. You are a student and you definitely talk to your teachers, your teachers would appreciate if you communicate formally with them. The same is the matter with a boss or anybody in the world with whom you are not frank enough. Let’s take a few examples

you want to write a letter to your teacher to explain why were

you absent last day. You have two words ‘away’ and ‘absent’ , in formal situations we definitely have to choose absent but yes if you are talking to your classmate, you can tell him why were you away last day.

Informal words shouldn’t be used with your teachers, boss and the people you are not frank with. You can comfortably use these words with everybody you are frank with, in short.
