    Hello everybody,

    I'm looking for translating that sentence into english :
    "Je n'ai aucune nouvelle de la lettre que je vous ai envoyéeé.

    Would you say :

    "I don"t hear from the letter i sent to you"
    or
    "I don't have any news from the letter i sent to you"

    Thanks a lot.

    you didn't reply to my letter/to the letter i sent you
    whay do you think about that?

    Thank you very much.

    What about :
    "I haven't heard from my letter (ever)since i sent it"

    is it correct?

    It doesn't sound right to me, you would hear from someone rather than from the letter (unless you are going on to refer specifically to information that the letter contains, like, 'I hear from your letter that you are doing well')
    I would understand what you mean by that sentence but an english speaking person would never say it like that, sorry!

    "I didn't hear word on the letter I sent you." or "I didn't hear back on the letter..."

    I also would say this most naturally

    or

    I haven't heard back from you since I wrote you
