Email project with Coffman High School in Ohio/ USA –  8c/9b/9d

At the beginning of the corona time we got the task from our class teacher Mrs. Wurring to exchange emails with students assigned to us from Coffman High School, Grizzell Middle School, Dublin, Ohio, to inform each other about the corona virus and get to know each other.

We learned a lot of interesting things about our email partners and about the city they live in. We learned that Dublin was  named after an Irish settler´s hometown in Ireland/ Europe and is well known for hosting the PGA Memorial Golf tournament each year in late May or early June. Our emailpartners told us that  Ohio was also called Buckeye state because the state tree is called a Buckeye. The state bird is a cardinal.

The assignment we were given consisted of three main parts, which we had to work on in each email and which the students from Ohio also received. After the tasks, a few of us stayed in contact with our email partners and still are. We really enjoyed this email project and we were able to improve our English and the students from Ohio their German. We also learned a lot about the US culture.  We would definitely do an email project again!

Mail-Exchange Programme between

In year nine, the beautiful country Australia is dealt with as one of many interesting topics in class.

Therefore, we luckily managed to get Ferry Grove State High School as mail-exchange partner for one of our classes. The students get to know each other by character profiles, pictures which show themselves, their favourite places or their school or even by self-made videos.

Usually, the German students write their mails in English, whereas the Australian students reply in German, even though their German is not very good yet, which is why they are sometimes allowed to write something in English too. Some partners have also exchanged mobile numbers or social media data so that they can also keep contact in their free time.
