John McMahon:
I teach English at Young Hoon Language Institute in Yongin city in the province of Kyonggido. Our school has students of all ages and levels and many of them would love the chance to speak some English with other students. My main problem is that students want conversation but don't want to write. I want to give them the chance to do both by exchanging voice e-mail (also known as wave files) with other students and native speakers. I have just started doing this and when I play the first recording for my students they usually want to collect their thoughts on paper and try again. We have the Internet in class and we also have registered copies of webphone and vocaltec's internet phone 5.0, so we can have live real-time conversation for advanced students. [Yongin, Kyonggido]

Ae-Lin Huh:
I am currently teaching at Shinkwang Girls Middle School in Seoul, Korea. I am interested in finding penpals for my students (preferably by postal letter, not e-mail). They are second year students and it would be nice if I could hook them up with students around their age. Their English level isn't that great so finding native speakers isn't essential. I would like one penpal for each student and there are 64 students in two classes that I am teaching.

My school address is:100 Bungi, Chungpadong 3 ga, Yongsangu Seoul, Korea 140-133 [Seoul]

Joie McKiernan:
I am an ESL teacher in a high school in Phoenix, Arizona. I would like to have my students exchange letters with ESL students in other countries. However, my computer is at home and we don't have the Internet at school, so we would have to use the "snail mail". If you are interested, please let me know.

Charles Cingolani:
Being a retired teacher without a classroom now, I would like to offer my poems to teachers as a teaching aid. I know from experience how useful a short poem can be on the blackboard. You can leave it there during the session and in the meantime students can be viewing it and reflecting. It can elicit reactions and feelings from your class. Talking about it can help them to express themselves accurately. Perhaps you might find my poetry of service to you in this regard. I welcome you to visit my site.[Hoechenschwand]
