    I was looking for a middle school to penpal with. Due to Skolinks, my students exchangel by sending and answering questions to each other. They also sent pictures of their region and events going on in their city. The goal was to allow students to experience a culture that is different from their own.

    These experiences of penpals or e-pals projects are really interesting, because students can read letters or e-mails from native speakers and discover interesting facts about different cultures. They are emotionally involved, for example the first time they get the letters from their penfriends they are very excited, and this has a positive effect on motivation, especially on "difficult" students. Their behaviour changes. Good students help bad students and the class climate improves. They memorize the most important words and in the final examination they usually get better marks.

    I'm a teacher in Malaysia and I desperately got no clue on how to motivate my students in writing.They shown lack of interest when it comes to writing.I was scared due to the fact that they will sitting for a national exam in October. So I decided to set up a classroom project with others school around the world. Thanks to Skolinks, I invited a few teachers from Germany, Italy, and Mauritius and they responded. We exchanged e-mail but writing letters was the best part. My students made friends and now they are motivated to practice their english! We won the 2nd place for best practices of learning English.Truly give good impact for my students and the school too. It was indeed a great recognition we have ever had. Thank you Skolinks and Nicolas !
