    Hi! I would like to know which is/are the best way/ways to close a letter in English.

    I know best regard but I think is too much formal. Something more friendly?...

    Thanx a lot!

    It depends on how friendly you want the tone of the letter to be. If it's a very close friend or family member, you'd usually use "love, Jane." Another possibility would be "Affectionately, Jane."

    For a casual note to a friend, you might use "Cheers, Jane." (That's usually how I end most of my emails to friends of mine. This would be too informal to use with a casual acquaintance or your boss, etc.)

    An acquaintance or someone a bit less familiar to you? Then use "Yours, Jane" or "Regards, Jane." To make it slightly less formal, you could say "Warm regards, Jane."

    More formal would be "Cordially, Jane" or "Yours sincerely, Jane."

    Those are my suggestions:)
