The letters from Spain have arrived!

Yesterday and this morning I gave my students the letters that I got two days ago from Spain.

When I told them I had the letters the atmosphere in class changed and I could feel  enthusiasm, happiness, and my students' wish to open and read them. 

So I became a postwoman and delivered the letters! 

After having got their letters the students started reading them and enjoyed having info about their Spanish friends. They also liked the decorations and the drawings on the letters a lot.  The students were proud of their letters and showed them to their school mates.

I asked them to start writing a reply and they didn't let me repeat it: they started at once. Some of them Had time to do it at school and some other promised to do it at home. They asked me for idiomatic expressions or more complicated words, they used the dictionary and so they created their answers to be sent to their friends.

 It will take a bit of time to have all the letters ready but we hope to be able to send them by the end of next week.
