I’m an English high school teacher in The Netherlands. I want to begin a little pen-pal project with two of my junior classes. I want my students to have contact with pupils their own ages in other parts of the world. We live on a little island called Goeree Overflakee.
Are you interested? If you are, please let me know as soon as possible. We can organise a little project to begin with.
I hope to get a lot of reactions.

Reply To: Starting a pen-pal project
These days people are so paranoid in schools even arranging a pen-pal project is difficult. Schools are worried the children will get into contact with perverts and then the school will be to blame, that’s the problem.
I know of a site that arranges language exchanges, it’s a paid service, but at least schools are put in touch with other schools so you know it’s legitimate.
