This is the Virtual Key Pal Station at MES-English.com. It is an international project exchange source. There are printable projects all ready to go. Just print and report back.
If you're like me, you don't have time to fish for project exchange partners or key-pals and by the time you get a bite, your class has moved on and the idea/material is beneath them. Or worse, you set up a project exchange and do the work, then the other end falls through.
I have created a Virtual Key Pals (V-Key Pals) International Project Exchange library The idea is that teachers can come here and download the lesson plans and projects already completed by various students in various countries. They then can complete the projects with their classes and share with their classes projects already completed from around the world. Finally, the teacher sends in their students' projects to be shared with the rest of the international community. If anything, these are lesson plans all ready to go!
There are 5 projects available with completed projects by my students and students around the world.
The Superhero Project target language: can, have, introductions, 3rd person singular
The Self Introduction International Project Exchange target language: present simple, like, favorites, have and language for introduction
The Mt. Diamonte Adventure Project target language: simple past or past perfect, creating a story
The Perfect Park Project target language: 'you can...' for permission., 'you can't...' for prohibition and imperatives.
The International Restaurant Boulevard Project target language: pricing, ordering, food, 'how much,' there is.../there are ... , when .../if ... clauses
I have more projects planned but I'm going to test the waters first. It takes some time to write these projects all out and get them on the web site. If I get a good reaction (a reaction) then I will post more of my projects.
There are no age or level limits for any project. That is up to the discretion of the teacher as to whether the project will be of interest to their class.
