Topic: 'Long time, no see!
Added by Cagey, moderator


As a non native speaker I was wondering if you only use this expression when you meet somebody you have run into after a long time or you can use it at the beginning of a letter or e-mail to mean 'It's been a long time since I last saw you!'.
Thank you so much for your help.

    You could do so providing that it is an informal letter or email to someone that you know well. Such letters and emails are the equivalent of a conversation.

    Oh! Thank you so much, SwissPete. A comma there made sense to me :), but I'll remember that now.

    Thank you, Cagey. I wasn't aware of that. I'll bear it in mind for future posts, though!
