Wanted: real letter-writers

11th May 2001 at 01:00
Our club International Penfriends is currently receiving many requests from overseas teachers wanting penfriends for their school classes to help develop language skills as well as good writing techniques.

Teachers have found that good writing techniques are not being developed through e-mail exchange and these improve though traditional letter writing.

Our club provides a first class schoolsyouth group service for children aged 10-17, which has been operational since 1967. Any teacher interested should contact: Pamela Walker
