Emails are constantly going back and forth between France and Greece! The topics of the latest ones have been everyday routines and physical appearance. You can see a sample interaction below. If you wish to read more on the whole project, click on the label 'E-pals project' at the bottom of the post.

What is also extremely interesting is that the French students have already prepared a presentation of their school which includes photos and descriptions of the children themselves. You can see it posted on their class blog: We intend to provide them with a description of our school shortly.

3. Hi Sarah, 

Thanks for your amazing e-mails. I like your routine and your appearance!

I am writing to tell you about my everyday routine and my physical appearance.

I  wake up at half past seven. I have breakfast at a quarter past eight. The school bus goes by my house at eight o'clock. School starts at half past eight and it finishes at 14.20 some days and at 13.40 some other days. After school I go home and I have lunch. I do my homework at 5 o'clock and I study for my piano lessons. Then I play or surf the Net. Also, I have basketball, English and drawing lessons on different days of the week. In the evening, I watch TV or I surf the Net. I have supper at about half past nine and I go to bed at 10 o'clock.

As for my appearance, I have got shoulder-length blond hair and brown eyes. I am of medium height and I  am slim. I have got fair skin too.    

Write back soon, 

P.S. This is a photo of me playing English games:
