My daughter had her first day in the Juniors (Key Stage 2 for all you modern parents!) today.

I wrote her a letter asking her about her first day (inspired by this thread), and asking her to write back.

We are now planning to write one letter a week to each other (my wife helping her with the envelope), and I'll help her post it.

do schools still do the foreign penpal thingy these days? i loved it in school writing to a penpal in another country, i think chatrooms and social networking and the likes have probably taken over it

I think you're missing the point, there could be some serious Kudos to be had if you write her the right sort of letter :wink:

Kind of depends on your GF though.
I have been touched by his noodly appendage.

Along,long time ago, I wrote letters in French to a Belgian girl whose native language was Flemish, and she spoke no English, while I spoke no Flemish.
the results would no doubt be entertaining to anyone fluent in all 3 languages, but we managed to communicate (I hope).

I remember the heroic efforts of the chap who wrote an English>Portuguese phrasebook, armed with only an English>French dictionary and a french > Portuguese dictionary.
