Hello :)

I need your help :)

a student of mine is searching for a penfriend... As shes in a boarding school she cant use the Internet very often... She wants to write "real" letters. Her level is pre-intermediate. Shes about 16 years old. She loves English.

 Id love one of my pupils to do it too. Shes 12. Here is my email: [email protected]
 Ive been thinking to do it with a whole class. They are between 9 and 11. So, if you, or anybody, have more pupils...
 Bye :)

Ive been talking to my students about having penfriends and they loved the idea! But they are thinking about using the net. I can talk to them to see if any of them is interested in writing real letters. They are aged 12 to 15.
my mail is [email protected]  if you want to contact me!Smile

Hi Akanah!
As I said before my pupils are interested but they are learning Spanish as well. They are on their second year. But since portuguese and spanish are a bit similar, if we put them on contact they may correspond in a kind of spanish mixed portuguese LOL

Thank you all for your messages :)  I really like this ESL community :) Theres always someone nice to help you

Maybe we can use the addresses of our schools? I can ask my student to prepare a letter in which she introduces herself and explains why she wants to have a penfriend... (I have to precise that I dont teach her anymore because shes in 5th form - I have younger students this year)

If you agree, can you please send me ([email protected]) an address that she can send her letter? In it she can give her own address.

I also have some beginner classes (13-15 years old) and they are really motivated to have penfriends :) At the moment were learning present simple tense and daily routines.

I hope we will be able to realize this project :)

Thanks a lot :)
