Business letters play an important role in the professional activity of a specialist. In order to write a correct business letter in accordance with the accepted rules and regulations. Currently, business correspondence is actively conducted in most cases, regardless of the field of human activity by e-mail. In order to teach a foreigner to write a business letter, the teacher is to have an idea of how to compose an electronic message. He has to know certain methodological characteristics of business letters, which will make it possible to create a methodological characteristic of business letters. The authors of the article identify the methodological features of business letters: content, function, composition, one-aspect/multi-aspect, simplicity/complexity.
