My CAS Project is creating an international pen pal network of students writing letters to one another in their foreign language. The way I intend for this to work is that students at my school can write to students in other countries (other than the US) in the foreign language that they are taking. Students on the receiving end would write back in English.
For example, a student taking Spanish at my school could write to a student in Bolivia. The student in Bolivia would respond in English.
In my experience in Spanish classes, I've noticed that most of my peers are better at reading than writing, and, in many instances, I find reading comprehension to be much easier than writing. Therefore, I decided, so that students on both ends benefit, they read the letter in their first language and respond in their second language.
If you are interested in participating, please let me know, and please get in contact with someone at your school that can help set this up. My school offers Spanish, French, German, Arabic, Hindi, and Mandarin as foreign languages, so if you are in a country that primarily speaks ones of these languages, and your (or your peers') second language is English, I encourage you to sign up and make a new international friend!
If you have any advice on how to connect with other schools for this project, please let me know!
