Hello, my name is Craig and I teach English in Japan. I am thinking about a way to connect my older elementary kids with kids learning English in another country. I want to show meaning and purpose for learning English. I want them to experience culture and to give them some motivation to reach out to other people globally. I have about 6 kids that are grades 3-6. I would like to do either a video exchange or pen pal writing exchange. If anyone is interested, I would love to chat more here or email.
I might be interested. I'm a TEFL teacher and this year am starting work as a bilingual assistant. I'd love to set up a pen-pal scheme or video exchange for my students. How old are students in grades 3-6?
I think that is a wonderful idea. Unfortunately I won't be able to help for a while as my daughter is not even talking yet. However, I hope to one day be able to connect her to someone speaking Russian for her practice and also have her connect with someone who is trying to learn English.
I hope you are able to find some pen pals for your students!
Caro C.: My daughter, 2yo was rocking her bunny while trying to sing her own way. This was something completely new so I made a video... just s couple of seconds had passed when she clearly says a whole spontaneous sentence in the mL: "this is the music". #EpicWin

Caro C.: It is just now, many hours later that I came to savour the moment since I had a pretty busy/moved day... so excited about this, something small but meaningful 😍😁
