Year 9 French Pen Pals

Mrs Williams with an update on French Pen Pals in Year 9:

“Since November 2016 a correspondence has been taking place between thirty students of Year 9 and thirty students of a class of French students in “Le Collège de Marcq-en-Baroeul” on the outskirts of Lille in France. They have been exchanging letters every month since then and also they have communicated their respective Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat addresses so that they can keep in touch throughout the month. They write letters on special occasions such as Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Birthdays, or other events (depending on each other’s culture). This correspondence is leading to an exchange that we hope will take place next year between the current students (who will be in Year 10). They will have an opportunity to discover even more of the French culture!

On your marks, get set, go!”
