North American Pen Pal Exchange.

North American Pen Pal Exchange
Thanks to Camille Risch, our American Assistant Teacher, we have begun to exchange e-mails with the Spanish lessons of Ryan Baggett at Siloam Springs High School in Arkansas, USA. Grade 5 and 6 are participating in this program with the students who are studying Spanish at this American high school.
         Our students write about themselves and about their experiences in English and the American students respond in Spanish. This is a great opportunity for both groups of students to practice their foreign languages while learning about different countries and cultures in the world. It´s also very fun and they are making new friends at the same time!
         We have chosen two sample letters so you can see how the Pen Pal program works. Have a look at them and enjoy!
Camille Risch.

Dear Pen Pal in Arkansas,

Hello!! My name is Tamara. i am from Vigo, Spain. I am 11 years old and in grade 6. My school is CEIP Ría de Vigo. It is next to the ocean!

I like reading and dancing in my free time. I don´t like cleaning or playing football. My favourite food is vanilla ice cream. I have got one sister. Her name is Luna. I like living in Galicia. The nature here is extraordinary. There are lots of trees and they give shade, oxygen and fruits. And the plants are good for the animals!

Tell me something about where you live. Are there beaches in Arkansas' How is the landscape? What is your favourite food? What is your favourite sport?

Hope to hear from you soon!
Tamara
