Penpal with Students in Texas
« on: May 27, 2018, 09:02:55 PM »
I am looking for a school in Korea that would like to participate in a cultural exchange with my middle school students in Texas. If you are interested, please let me know. Here is some info on what I am thinking:

Send and respond to video/ written questions
Write letters
Teach about pop culture
Show the school
Discuss fashion/ uniforms/ trends
Have Korean students write my students names in Hangul
Send pictures
Discuss slang
Show different school events (pep-rally, football games...)
Send pictures and descriptions of food

I used to teach in Korea, so all of these activities would make for fun and meaningful lessons! I would suggest having your favorite class participate and to focus on one activity per week. Easy lesson planning for you!

I am wanting to start at the end of September.

I would be interested! I have been thinking about doing a penpal exchange with my MS 2 kids in Korea. September would be perfect.

Hello, I know I'm kinda late to this. But I work at an All boys middle school and I'm sure they would be happy to connect with other kids abroad.
