    Approximately how old are you and who are you saying this to ( what context)?

    I'm 16 years old
    I was looking for sentence with which I could begin a text ( an exam for instance )
    it'd be a reply to a good friend of mine so I wanted to say :I'm very happy about hearing from you

    Je dirais "I've been delighted to hear from you", mais ne suis point natif!

    It was really nice to hear from you.
    It made me happy to hear from you.
    I was really happy...

    In an American English context, you're definitely too young to say "delighted," it's NOT for a teenager. I don't know about the UK/British English.
