How I Use It
I have my students write introductory pen pal letters using personality traits, physical characteristics, etc. Because I teach only 10 ten weeks it is hard to find classes to work with us but I have! My classes are with me every day and most schools around the world do not tend to respond as quickly as we would prefer. We share culture, locality, and age level similarities.
My Take
Setting up classes is time consuming but once they are in you are good to go. Finding classes to work with can also be time consuming and frustrating but once you connect it is so worth how excited your classes become. Students are anxious to write and share with their ePals.
