real writing for real kids

Muhammad and Musa have joined epals.com for a month now.  It’s a site where teachers and learners all across the globe meet and become friends.

Through epals.com, our boys have made friends from other countries.  They email each other and get to know their new friends and the countries as well.

Writing to a real person is a practical writing lesson for Muhammad and Musa.  They write to communicate….in English.

Of course, the most popular question asked would be about themselves and Malaysia.

It’s interesting and funny to see what goes on in their mind from their correspondence with people from another continent.

So, if you are a parent or a teacher, connect to epals.com ‘write’ away!

  1. Thanks for sharing this website!
    I have been wondering about this. I remembered last time when I was in school, I used to have penpals from abroad. Now with advanced technology, specifically email, it’s even more convenient to communicate with pals, near or far. I’ll keep this website in view, for my son when he can read and write later.
    Would also like to mention it in my blog, if you don’t mind. Thanks🙂
    p/s: ePal (macam apple pulak) untuk mums ada tak? hehe..

  2. Salam Sis Mynie,

    I used to have penpals too – locally and abroad. It was so exciting to receive a real letter with foreign stamp, right? I love traditional mails because you can ‘feel’ them and keep them.

    Go ahead and spread the word. Actually, there are other sites like epal (apple, i agree). Go register now and don’t wait for Munif (kan?) to be able to read and write. You can be his reader and writer right? He dictates, you type. Amacam?
