Penfriends in Greece

  We were lucky a few weeks ago, through our membership of the Cambridge English Penfriends site, to have the opportunity to swap message cards with an English school in Greece.

 The school, Yes You Can, is located in the town of Marathon, Greece. Aside from my students initially not believing there was actually a town called Marathon, we had a lot of fun reading the Greek students cards (pictured above) and discovering about their local area.

 In turn my students produced message cards to send back to their Marathon counterparts. I was also in contact with their teacher so there was a good rapport and I look forward to swapping cards in the future.

 As I get more accustomed to the Penfriend system I'm gradually introducing the message cards to the middle Elementary School aged students...I think it really gives them a study boost, as they see they can communicate with children around the world, all through the medium of English.
