Native English speaking penpals wanted for my Thai highschool students

Hello!

My name is Zoe. I’m originally from the UK but I’ve been teaching English in Thailand for the last 18 months. I’m looking into starting a pen pal program for some of my more advanced students. My students are 15-18 years old. Dependent on student interest (and ability) I imagine I would have around 30-40 students who would like to participate.

I’m looking to partner with students of a similar age from an English speaking country (UK, US, etc) for both cultural exchange and to help my students improve their written English. I teach in a small, rural, low-income area in the South of Thailand and many of my students know very little of the outside world.

The school year in Thailand runs from May until February, so I would like to be able to start my students writing letters in May (2018).

If you’re interested please get in contact!
