Mail is a wonderful thing.
I invited my English club students to be pen pals with the students of one of my high school teachers. They were excited, but ultimately only four wrote letters for me to mail to America. I asked my teacher to have more than four of his students write a letter back in hopes that I could convince more of my students to participate.
When the mail finally arrived, the students were so excited. This is probably the first letter they have ever received.
I hope the letters make it much easier for them to write responses.
I may look like this as well when I receive mail.
