I�m teaching a class of 15 teens in needs aged  /b/ 14 and 16 y.o. who are preparing a diploma in catering industry. Their English level is obviously quite low but they are very nice and super motivated !
Would you please try and be our penfriends this year? You can trust me, I will send regular mail and won�t let you done ! I�ve already done that many years ago with a Turkish class: I can remember we had exchanged parcels in which each pupil had given a symbol of his/her country or him/herself: So we got some keyrings, teddy bears, spices and they got caps from the Formula one Grand Prix, keyrings too, postcards.... In a word, an amazing load of anything and everything. My pupils were exctatic ! And when they sent and received letters, it was the same joy in class!
Soooooooo, it would be great to start this project once again ! 
Thanks a lot,

Hi Isabelle, Glad to hear your message about the penpal project.I remember that I had sustained a penpal project via sending letters in a big envelope to Poland but it was a long time ago.I had seven gap years and now I�m back.I remember that it worked really well with my pupils and we had sent some sweet souvenirs describing our city.I have the same age students this year and if you wish,I�m up for a new project. Looking forward to hearing from you soon Best regards Elif

Dear Isabelle, 
We would be super glad to take part!
We are based in Ukraine, though, so if email pen friendship is possible in these cicumstances, we are  ready!
We also have positive experience in email friendship and Zoom sessions with several schools.
I would be thankful for your answer.
Best regards,
