| | IDEA!: What about making penfriends?
Hi everyone! How are things there? I've created this thread because I'd like to share with you an idea that I have, and if you agree with me, we can be sharing soon a nice activity all together
The idea is this: What about talking to our students and propose them to meet new students from other countries? I was thinking about making a list with e-mail addresses so each student can choose one or more students from the list, and they have to write mails each other. I think that will be fun for them, as they are used to writing emails and using the internet. Also, they will be able to learn in context, and also we can make them write emails with specific info, I mean... "Ok, in the next e mail, tell them about school" that is to say, in the following mail they are to write, they can include other things, of course, but the idea is that my students tell yours about how the school system works here (e.g. classes begin in march and finishes in december, winter holidays are about to coming, in july, etc.)
Tell me what do you think!
of course you can add more ideas related to this suggestion!
I leave my mail so you can write me firstname.lastname@example.org
