Searching for penfriends for French High School student (intergenerational project)
Dear Mr or Mrs,
I am an English Teacher in France and I am looking for elderly penfriends for my 15 years old students. Indeed, as part of the French curriculum ruled by the notion "the art of living together", we are studying intergenerational relations and all the positive consequences they can have on personal development and self-fulfillment. I'd like to ask my students to write a letter in which they'd describe what they are willing and capable to teach to an elder person, but also what they would like to learn from that person. Having real "penfriends" would definitely keep their motivation level up as I know for sure they are going to die for an answer.
Let me know if this project is conceivable and could be tempting for the residents of your nursing homes.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Hi. I edit a magazine called The Care Home Environment and would be happy to post a request on our website so that perhaps care home managers could contact you direct. Could you write something appropriate, which includes details of how to contact you? Our website is www.thecarehomeenvironment.com
Hello. I would be happy to be included. Feel free to contact me on [log in to view email address]. I am 69 - so I probably qualify. I could perhaps brush up a little on my very ancient French. At one time I was quite fluent!
I'm the Senior Housing Co-ordinator at an Extra Care Scheme and I have a resident who is interested in writing to the pupils. Do you have an email address so that she can contact you directly please ?
Thank you both for your kind offers. Here's my email adress so that you can contact me directly : [log in to view email address].
Hoping to hear from the potential "pen pals" soon,
