    Default Hi all teachers, I need pen-pals for my students!

    I'm teaching English in a Chinese rural middle school. A large quantity of Chinese students are quite reluctant to learn English but they have to because of the college entrance examinations' requirement. They never have chance to use it, that's why English becomes boring and "dead" through the teaching and learning.
    Now I want there are opportunities where they can use it and feel the power of a foreign language. Yes it's pen-pal, a bunch of pen-pals exactly. For the very moment I teach two classes with each about 58 students! If you are an ESL teacher and you want to provide your students with opportunities to communicate with students from another country through E-mails and nail-mails or even video-chatting, no matter you are in Asia, Africa, America etc just let me know.
    Thanks all.

    P.S.
    I've searched many pen-pal websites but they are all for individuals. This is the first time I post here and I think this site or forum is suitable for such call. If dear administrator thinks I violate the forum rules please just kindly offer me a proper place as far as you know where I could place this post.

    Hello there, did you try this site (it's not mine but I have come across it in the past) and they have a penpal section:

    Hi. I am also a teacher of English and need penpals for my students in order to have them practise their foreign language English in written and spoken forms. You can e-mail me. By the way, I am from Turkey.

    Hi there,

    I teach English in Denmark (age 11-15). I am VERY interested in exchanging mail/snail mail and videos/ audio recordings. I teach 6 different classes and am very eager to get this started right away. ( 4 classes already have a letter ready about their school)
    pls contact me asap by mail : EMAIL REMOVED - Send PM to This User Instead
    looking forward to hearing from both Turkey and China.

    Regards
    Tine Lyngaa

    Emails addresses are automatically removed for security reasons- spammers farm places like forums for any personal information. Regular posters can exchange information by personal messages, but these are only available to people who have posted ten times, again a measure to reduce advertisers and spammers.
