Dear Macro

Hi, how are you? Hope everything is going well. I am writing this letter to introduce you to our magnificiant school. As you can see it is so big, has two buildings with a hall way attaching them and a swimming pool for activity time, Dare you challenge me at swimming. Anyways activity time session is different it is not PE, it is were you choose what you want to be: sportster, writer or even Engineering. It is only one lesson in a day. As far as I am concerned there is a desk next to me at the front which you can sit in.

As usual we got bullies, friendly, and shy people in class. The principal will give you a notebook which the class teach should sign or write your behavior throughout the day. At the beginning of the day we are gonna listen to the national anthem, and start with Islamic lesson so we feel that god is on our side at any time. The non Muslims are gonna have to sit in another room. After the Islamic lesson we are gonna start with our first subject of the day which is gonna be written in the schedule table. At the end of the day you are gonna give your book to any co-principal which is gonna check your behavior book, he will have to sign the book with a colour: green = good+ free sweet, yellow=should have done better, red= you were not well in class and your mom should see this book.

Anyways, good for now and see you later. Don’t hesitate responding back if you have any problems feel free to call back

Yours Abdulfatah

I have never had any penfriend until now but I would like a penfriend so much. My mom had 2 pen friends while she was in high school. One of them was from England, the other one of them was from Hong Kong. My mum also gifted them. Once the penfriend from Hong Kong sent her a notebook and my mum hid it for so many years.

Hi Rohan26,
Thanks for your comment. Please be very careful if you talk to strangers online as it can be very dangerous. We have a lot of information on our website about online safety so please do read our advice. Have a look at these pages for example:
https://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/skills/reading/elementary-a2-reading/online-safety-poster

https://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/study-break/video-zone/i-it-safer-internet-day-song

We wouldn't call someone you've met online a 'penpal' I think it would be more common to say 'an online friend' or something similar.

Best wishes and please do take care online.

Hi Jimmy,

My name is Nathan and I am 13. I live in an big house in Brussels with my parents and younger sister. There is 2 bedrooms and 2 studying room and 1 big livingroom with piano.

I live far from school so I go to the school by schoolbus. My favorite subjects are P.E. and ILT. My teacher is kind and handsome. But he sometime gives us too much home works. I like baseball, swimming, tennis, football and hockey as a sports. I like tennis for the best. So I really want to be the professional tennis player when I live school. My favorite instruments are clarinet and piano.

My best friends are Sami and Daniel who’s from Turkey and S. Korea. We play football in school. At the weekend, we usually go travel. I rarely go to the park by bike.

Write soon and tell me about yourself.

Best whishes

Nathan

No, I don't have any penfriend. But some of my friends have one and they said that is amazing, because you can learn a lot of someone only by sending emails and also you can find people of different parts of the world. I would like to have one, one day.

Hi Julia, 
On LearnEnglish Teens you can write comments and communicate with other teenage learners from around the world. However, you can't make direct contact with other users so you can't become penfriends. Please read our House Rules - they're for everyone's safety. :)
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens team)
