I am working on a project that I called Culture Exchange and Penpals Project.Actually,we created a space in facebook group in which we exchange our cultures and post the letters pictures  or a box trcieved and our students feedback and it is an excellent opportunity for our students to intetact and have friends.Recently, many  worldwide teachers joined and added their students.

Hi there

I haven īt checked in for a while.  The cafe really isn īt what it used to be.  Sigh.

I always check the birthdays.  Today, November 26 2018, is Peter Hardy īs birthday.  After he informed us of his fatal illness, he disappared from the site.  But his memory lingers on.

Happy Birthday dear friend Peter.

Love,
Esther

Thank you for reminding us dear Esther. He was such a great person .very sad. 
Hope you īre well dear Esther. Love from Mariethe.

Yes, I agree, Esther. Peter was wonderful. His materials are his legacy. I remember, when I had a trip to Amsterdam, he told me all the bars to visit. He was a man of the world, was dear Peter. And a cat man, to boot. 
And hello dear Mariethé, I always hoped to meet you one day. To collect my bolero LOL
Today, I am slightly hurt in a way that isn īt really important and doesn īt impinge on anything. 
I have got my feedback from my Italian teaching on the cruise. (3 weeks on the Med). Where 1 is good and 4 is bad, I scored 1.42. It seems like a wonderful score, but we were so close, those students and me and I put my heart and soul into it and let īs be honest, my materials (adapted from the best site in the world, of course!) were amazing. They were! To think that a person attended and only gave me 2. Or maybe it was the woman whose husband I tried to steal. LOL
He he!
Love to all,

Lynne

OMG Lynne. That īs devastating.  I can say don īt pay to much attention to that but I know that īs impossible.  I once worked in a great institute that gave me constant feedback in my teaching.   It was all well-meant but it was like getting punched in the shoulder everyday. "That was good but..."

Try to remember the good things about your trip and let the negative things slip away as time goes by.

Love you,
Esther

Thank you, Esther! That trip was amazing and I loved it. That score was within the parameters of being asked back, so if they ask me again, I would go! I am doing nothing at the moment. Haven īt volunteered for a while and I īm done with supply teaching. I am just relaxing, really. It īs not a bad life, but I īl have to do something, soon! 
It is quiet on here, isn īt it? I guess we have become more lax about what we post on the forum. I have just posted a silly youtube clip, which maybe in the past, I īd have posted here... 

Anyway, Merry Christmas!

Love you too,
Lynne

Thank you, Mary!
This poem seems a bit  extremeWink but I liked it! 

Chaos ruled OK in the classroom
as bravely the teacher walked in
the hooligans ignored him
his voice was lost in the din

īThe theme for today is violence
and homework will be set
I īm going to teach you a lesson
one that you īll never forget ī

He picked on a boy who was shouting
and throttled him then and there
then garrotted the girl behind him
(the one with grotty hair) 

Then sword in hand he hacked his way
between the chattering rows
īFirst come, first severed ī he declared
īfingers, feet or toes ī

He threw the sword at a latecomer
it struck with deadly aim
then pulling out a shotgun
he continued with his game

The first blast cleared the backrow
(where those who skive hang out) 
they collapsed like rubber dinghies
when the plug īs pulled out

īPlease may I leave the room sir? ī
a trembling vandal enquired
īOf course you may ī said teacher
put the gun to his temple and fired

The Head popped a head round the doorway
to see why a din was being made
nodded understandingly
then tossed in a grenade

And when the ammo was well spent
with blood on every chair
Silence shuffled forward
with its hands up in the air

The teacher surveyed the carnage
the dying and the dead
He waggled a finger severely
īNow let that be a lesson ī he said 

Roger McGough
Edit: Itīs totally un-PC, isnīt it? Maybe we shouldnīt entertain it, but I found it on a teaching site. .. Ah, that explains it! Iīve just googled the poet, heīs in his eighties. Pre-PC era!

Love it! And this has just amused me.

Someone asked an old man: "Even after 70 years, you still call your wife – darling, honey, luv. What’s the secret?"

Old man: "I forgot her name and I’m scared to ask her."

The Queen īs guards play a tribute to the greatest entertainer of them all. And to the success of the film, I guess. 

I was in London yesterday, while this was going on! Wish, wish, wish I īd gone to Buck Palace. I went to the Tate to see the Edward Burne-Jones exhibition. it was wonderful. The best bit was his paintings īBriar Rose ī. I feel a worksheet coming onLOL

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
