Swedish Penpals

A few weeks ago, our English teacher, Mrs Harlow told us that we would be receiving letters from students in Sweden. My whole class were shocked and could not believe it! We had to write back to them.

When we were given the letters, we read through them thoroughly and thought about how to answer their questions.

 Swedish Students

A few weeks ago, our English teacher, Mrs Harlow told us that we would be receiving letters from students in Sweden. My whole class were shocked and could not believe it! We had to write back to them.

When we were given the letters, we read through them thoroughly and thought about how to answer their questions.

There were some  questions that we were asked which we were not allowed to answer, like exchanging names for social media. We took this information and wrote a rough copy. Mrs Harlow told us that their English lessons were on how to speak, understand and read English.

The Swedish penpals’ letters were quite basic English; they are practising using full stops, capital letters, low level  adjectives and paragraphing. However, since they were writing in a second language, we forgave them! Our job was to write back to the best of our ability and answer their  questions.

We then had to rewrite our letters in a neat handwriting; some of us had two letters which made this hard! They will be sent and hopefully we year 7s have pen pals!

We would like to thanks Mrs Harlow for arranging this for us.
