Or may be I should use another word?

  • So it was a question " Why do you write by/with english letters?" (On the keyboard layout) i can also ask :" why do you write by/with russian letters or chinese letters

'Write with English letters', as opposed to say 'with Russian (Cyrillic) letters'.

Or 'write in English' and not in Russian or in Chinese.


You write English using the letters of the English (or Latin) alphabet. Or in the English alphabet.
