Subject: Hey!!

Hi Milktea,
 
My name is Karli. I am 12 years old, but not for long my birthday is coming up soon. I go to Elkins MIddle School, and I’m in seventh grade. I would really like to know about your language and where you live on the island.

 My favorite thing to do outside of school is definitely soccer. I love to play soccer! I’m on my Middle School’s soccer team. This is the first year that my Middle School has a soccer team. We just had our first game last night. I also have a dog, her name is Joy. Once I graduate from High School, I want to go to collage. I want to go to Marshall University or West Virginia University. I want to major in either being an elementary school teacher, a vetanarian, a nurse, or a pro fessional soccer player.

 I’m not a picky eater so i like a bunch of foods, but my favorites are probably icecream, tacos, spagetti, and cesar salad. My favorite meal is something my mom makes. She makes homemade frenchfries, then she puts taco meat and cheese on them, and then she puts them in the oven to bake. The other thing she makes with it is chicken with taco seasoning on it. She doesn’t make it very often, but when she does it’s really good!

 I’m excited, because it’s my first year doing ePals. Well that’s all. I hope to hear back from you soon. We will be back in the computer lad Friday the 17th, to replay to your emails!

                       
                                 Karli:)

Elkins Middle School email 交換

9/8更新:
今天Laura老師確定星期五會寄mail過來,至於跟你們通信的小朋友是誰,因為他們是採隨機的方式, 要等到你們收到信時才知道.

今年每個班級都有和國外小學交流合作的機會,類型也不太相同.

Elkins Middel School這個單純的交換email的計畫,共有4個班級參與: 604~607.

學校網站 http://boe.rand.k12.wv.us/education/school/school.php?sectionid=31&

原本負責的老師Laura說要讓她的學生們星期三完成,改到星期五!

所以請同學們再等一下.

請同學利用這段時間可以去搜尋關於這間學校的資訊.

例如: 位在美國的那一州? 人口多不多? 氣候如何?

以及任何你們想知道的事,準備好問題,到時可以寫信你的epal.

也不要忘記先寫好 “自我介紹“,

收到對方的來信後, 我會預約電腦教室,

讓大家可以把自我介紹及想問的問題以最近的速度mail給他們了.

可能會有同學對為什麼要跟中學生做交換有所疑問,

在這裡解釋一下美國的學制,

Elementary School K-5

Middle School 6-8

High School 9-12

他們通常是5歲上幼稚園,即所謂的K (kindergarden)

所以雖然和我們交換的是grade 7,其實年紀是和我們差不多的.

自我介紹

這個學期要錄製你們的口試~自我介紹

上面的影音是韓國7princess的英語自我介紹,

並不是製式的傳統介紹, 內容很生活化,

大家可以參考一下, 來個不一樣的自我介紹.

下面這個文件all about me是ePals(網路筆友)內所附的學習單, 供大家參考.

1st worksheet – all about me

http://classweb.loxa.edu.tw/peichin/epals_worksheet/all%20about%20me.doc

我在課堂上強調過, 每個人的能力不同,

並不會要求每人做一樣的事, 以一樣的基準為大家評分, 只要盡力就好.

最基本的自我介紹如下:

  1. My name is _____________________________ .
  2. My birthday is on _________________________.
  3. I am _______________. (age)
  4. I am _______________ centimeters tall.
  5. I love _______________. (hobby/sport/pet)
  6. My favorite color is _______________________.
  7. My favorite season is ______________________.

範例:

Hi! My name is Betty. My birthday is on May 23rd. I am 12 years old. I’m 145 cm tall. I love singing and dancing. My favorite color is pink. My favorite season is summer. Nice to meet you.

畫底線的部分請替換成自己. 可以完成如這個範例的自我介紹,可以得到基本80分, 如果想要更高的分數, 可以加上如ePals All about me學習單上的其它問題.

學習單最後一題,用3個形容詞形容自己的個性,

參考的形容詞如下:

personality adjective
