Occasion and audience. The occasion and the audience are two things that an individual should consider before deciding whether to use formal or informal English. The occasion determines which language to use since there are expectations and norms required to understand and the audience determines the language since the type and level of knowledge of the audiences differ.
We use formal or informal language depending on the occasion and the audience. We use formal language in conditions that are serious and involve people we don't know. Formal language is common when we write and informal when we speak. in the case of speeches and lectures, formal English can be used.
C. The occasion and the audience. When it comes to formal vs. informal communication, you should always remember who you're speaking with and the occasion. A school speech, for example, is not the same as a private conversation, and you can speak formally at the former and informally at the latter.
