LC: To write a formal letter of complaint


Yesterday, you read about the working conditions for children working in the Victorian mills. You probably read and listened to shocking and dangerous things that children were expected to do. 


Today, I want you to imagine that you are one of those children in Victorian Britain. I'd like you to imagine that you are working in a cotton mill during the Industrial Revolution and experiencing what it was like.



I would like you to write a formal letter of complaint to the mill owner, which tells him your concerns about the working conditions in the mill. 



Watch the following short video about writing a letter of complaint. 
Below are some language structures that might help when writing your letter. 
Have a look at the following example of a formal letter of complaint.
