    Writing a letter....

    OKay, I was wandering, how do I make a letter to a foreign country? I live in Florida and will need to make a letter to Germany. Will there be any extra things I would have to do? Like stamps and stuff?

    Yep, you should just ask at the post office about how much the stamp for "international/intercontinental" would be and get that one, other than that, adresses can be tricky for other countries so make sure you get it EXACTLY right- must be something online to help with this no

    And put Germany after the address, like

    Hedwig Gutentag
    115 glockenstchag Dr,
    City, state and zip if applicable
    Germany

    Making up German words is fun!

    Or just go here: http://www.usps.com/tools/calculatep...lculatepostage

    Also, it helps to write 'Airmail' across the front of the letter.

    Yes, it is pretty simple.

    As pointed out try to find out what the format for the address is and print it exactly as you can. The last line has to be the country. Underlining it helps but is not necessary.

    Then just purchase air mail postage from the post office. I think for a typical letter it's $0.63.

    And again as you noted mark the envelope 'Air Mail' or 'Via Air Mail' or 'Par Avion'. The Post Office will usually do this for you. These are normally marked on the front of the envelope on the lower left corner and in the upper right near the stamps and cancellation marks.
