modify delete 102315 - from Daniel (Alaska (USA)) - 2014-12-07
: "English Language Learners looking for foreign penpals"

Hi my name is Daniel. I have a Social Studies class (world geography) currently with 17 students who have varying degrees of English proficiency. Students are in grade 7 and are between the ages of 12 and 13.

We are looking for penpals to exchange information about Yup'ik culture and life in rural Alaska (the only way in or out is by plane, boat, or snow mobile in winter). We would love to learn more about your culture and what life is like where you live. Students can exchange photos, emails, actual letters and boxes, and videos. Students have expressed interest in learning more about China and Japan, but we would love to hear from people from anywhere in the world.

Please, only reply if you are a teacher with a class that is similar in size and age to ours. If you want to Google our village look up Mountain Village, AK.

Quyana (Yup'ik for Thank You) -Daniel

Dear colleague,

My name is Alecio and I'm an English teacher in a collège in Northern France, teaching pupils from 12 to 15 years old. I am looking for a simple and informal cultural exchange in English on a free virtual platform (Padlet, Drive, you name it...) with any class in the world to let pupils introduce themselves in English, talk about their school, their favourite singers, post pictures of their timetables, etc. Plus, I actually had a lesson plan based on Alaska scheduled for next year :-)

If you are interested in running such an exchange in the coming 2019-20 school year, please e-mail me at :

Hello Danieli, please call me John, your students may call me Mr John, I come from "the land down under", Australia I have students for you from Australia and around the world because this is what we do, we talk to everyone especially on Skype and Group Skype, so that we can speak to people from around the world at the same time. One of my teachers, Ms Linda was working with student Angel, in Nairobi, Kenya, Africa a five-year-old with only basic English but on Group Skype I was talking with student Francis, in Manila, The Philippines, I had only taught her English, 5 minutes before but both girls, ACROSS the world from each other and from myself, began speaking in English to Mr John near Sydney Australia and Ms Linda, being a Christian thought it was a miracle, yes, a miracle of technology. You can download Skype for free, from the Internet, your students will see my words and hear my voice is simultaneously, and they can playback everything that you see written, to listen and practice over and over again, penpal, Daniel,regards, John.

Hello Daniel,

i hope it is not obsolete but i've read your penpal ad. I'm a teacher of geography and intercultural pedagogy in little Austria-a country in central europe- and my class (6th grade-- so btween 10 and 11 years) is doing a project bout polar regions .. Therefore i would enforce an exchange with your students, as you living in the pretty cold region, we are about to learn...
It would be really nice, if my students receive some information about their everyday life and living in colder region and in comparision we can share information from our country ;) as good as my pupils can write in english- as their mother tongue isn't english. Lisa
