    French teacher in India, I wanted to work on the Clément Aplati / Stanley Flat project to exchange with several classes all over the world. I registered on Skolinks and contacted several schools. 5 replied: in Guadeloupe, in Réunion, in Canada, in Togo and in Algeria. Throughout the year, we exchanged letters and some objects that each school sent. The students loved it and the project was presented to the parents. Thanks !

    Hi! I'm an english teacher from Poland and I was looking for English-speaking penpals for my primary school students aged 9-12. I found a class on this site. My students were very excited with the chance of making friends with peers from over the world. We had traditional snail mail exchange with students from others countries. It was great !

    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.
