Looking for pen friends   
Dear folks,
I am an english teacher from Spain. I am looking for abroad school that will be interested in exchange information during one school year.  I will teach  english as a second language to students  from 9 year old  to 12 year old. The training course will start in September and finish in June.
The main idea is to develop in the children the interest to communicate with other students using english language. They are used to learn english as a compulsory subject in the school. In this way they will use english for other purposes as well as they will learn about other cultures.
If someone is interested, send me a message.
Thanks in advance.

Hello, I did similar activity with my pupils last school year and I think you could do it through etwinning.net to earn yourself some awards for pupils and certificates.

Typing by talking   
For all those teachers who make exercises and donīt feel like typing so much:
Voice note II - google chrome web store or  

Both work fine for me. I just put my headset on, watch TV and say the sentences as they come to my mind. They do need a bit of editing afterwards, but still, I  find it too good not to spread the word.

Grammar and Language Learning   
Can anyone think of a construction in English which you know is not ungrammatical, but you īve never seen in a grammar book? 
From a recent Lingua Franca post:
"Grammars are never complete. Natural languages are so rich and diverse in variety of sentence types that there are always residual undescribed constructions."
The writer (a grammarian) then cites an example which his own reference grammar was the first to note and another which his book didn īt cover. The first construction was "the reduplication of modifier words for emphasis in a major, major problem, or much, much too far." The second was adding the regular past participle suffix –ed + out to a noun to indicate reaching an excess of something – to be museumed outto be all caffeined out.
The link is here:

You should read P G Wodehouse for some imaginative conversion of nouns to verbs. He coined quite a few. As for Gyles Brandreth, I both love him and hate him at the same time. He knows his English, that īs for sure.

A letter correction - native speakers: please, help   
Hello, dear friends.
Me and my colleagues are going to attend an English course in Bournemouth, England and my principal asked me to send an e-mail to school we are going to go.  It īs not exactly an easy letter so I would like to ask you to read it and give me a feedback. I am sure there are some mistakes but it īs been almost 15 years I have written such kind of formal letter.
Thank you very much for your help, Michaela

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you because of an English course me and my colleagues are going to attend at your school between August 17 and August 28 2015. Because our course is being paid from the money of EU as a project, the certificates we should receive at the end, should have a specific requirements:

1. The name and the address of your institution

2. The whole name of attendant

3. Course title

4. The date of the beginning and the end of the course, number of lessons, place, the way of ending the course

5. Place and the date the certificate has been issued
