Hello all,

I am an English teacher from the Netherlands, and I work in a Dutch secondary school. Homeschooling is illegal here and as a consequence, for most of my students, the concept is alien and strange ("seriously, who wants to be stuck in a room with their parents all day?" is generally the most-heard comment).

For next school year (starting in late August/early September) I'd like to set up some sort of correspondence between my first years (ages 12-13) and some homeschoolers, so they can practice their English (and broaden their horisons, and all that) and get acquainted with the concept. The details of the operation I haven't worked out yet - that would also depend on the participans - but the idea is some sort of mutually beneficial project.

To do this, I'd like to place an ad of some sort on this forum for anyone who's interested, but I'm not sure if this is allowed and if it is, where to post it. Could you help me out?

Thanks in advance!

So, you're looking for penpals for your students. :D

We have a subforum for that. Just scroll down the page until you find it, and post there.

I think it sounds like a great idea. :D

Too bad, though, that it is illegal in Holland to homeschool. :(
