OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG WRITERS
Tuesday, April 14, 2015 by Patti Shene

I thought the teen writers I have connected with through this website page might like to follow up on this information. This gentleman is looking for teen writers from America who would be interested in connecting with teen writers in another country.

 

I need some American high school students.

I’m a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cimalaka, Sumedang, West Java, Indonesia teaching at a high school. I have an English Club that has a Facebook page. The idea of the Facebook page is to practice our English with others. The “others”, I hope, will be American high school students.

SMAN 1 Cimalaka is a large school. We have close to a thousand students in the last three grades of high school. The school is an “English Research School" which means that new methods of teaching English as a Foreign Language are tried. Students are selected to have extra class hours in subjects that interest them for which they have a proven aptitude.

My students have an extra three hours of English classes in addition to the four hours a week all students get. (By the way, we have a five and a half day week with Friday being a half day so that students can go to mosque at noon and have Sunday off.) The students in these extra classes are very good at English – very good.

We have an English Club that meets once a week after school. The students who come to English Club are the best of the very good ones. Their English is wonderful. They are a teacher’s dream.

I am asking for your help to find American high school students who would be willing to join our Facebook page and, from time to time, write on it. My students want to know about American schools, customs, fashions, boy – girl friends, hobbies, sports, music, homework, tests, vacations, television, movies, home life, communities and just about any other polite topic.

The students need not ‘friend’ each other, just join the page.

I personally monitor this page and will delete anything I find offensive.

This is a great opportunity for American and Indonesian students to get to know each other. In this ever shrinking world this can be an opportunity to learn about our peers who are from another country, another religion and another culture.

Our Facebook page is called “English Club SMAN1 Cimalaka (Indonesia)”. If you have any questions please write to me at [email protected].
