Looking for advice on French penpals

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by rachelle_mccoy, Dec 8, 2017.

  1. Greetings!
    It is my first year teaching French 1 (13-15 year olds) and several students have mentioned that they would enjoy having a French penpal. I was wondering if anyone had any guidance in this area--which sites to use, what has worked for you, what hasn't, etc. I'd rather gather the wisdom of someone else's experience before jumping into the whole thing. Any advice would be much appreciated!

    I now teach Primary MFL and we have linked with a Spanish school via eTwinning (www.etwinning.net). Every child in Years 5 and 6 have a penpal and we write letters as part of our MFL lessons. You could probably find a French school who is also looking for English penpals on there and then work out with the teacher how it will work for you. I don't know if that's been any help to you!

    Hello, I'm a parent at a French secondary school in Paris looking to set up an exchange program with a UK school. If you're still on the look out for French penpals, please don't hesitate to contact us as my daughter's class is very eager to exchange with UK penpals.
     
  4. Hello I am a French Teacher, I would be greatly interested by an exchange with your students.
    I teach in a private high school near Paris : La salle Passy Buzenval.
    Would you be interested ?
