I happened to see my old letters a week ago, received from my foreign penfriends when I was 10 or so and it remembered what an exciting feeling it was to recieve a letter, addressed not to my father or mother, but to ME and from a foreign country. Different handwriting, papers, stamps, stickers, exchanging collections, photos, info... Do our pupils know what advantages snail mail penfriend has over e-pals?
So I went back to school (Im a class teacher of form 6) and started to advertise my idea of establishing a penfriend club, where we would get together after lessons, chat, write letters (I must help them, I realise that too) and share the info what we have got from our penpals. I searched up from internet several contacts and as my school is small (103 pupils from age 7 to 16) the majority has a penpal already, but still new contacts are needed.
If any teacher is willing to cooperate, to help his/her students exchange letters with pupils from Estonia, you are more than welcome to drop me a line either: [email="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email] or leave a message here.
I do have other projects in my mind, so you will hear from me more under different topics. :-)
Wishing everybody nice weekend!
