Procedure (45-55 minutes)
Introduce the idea of a penfriend and ask the students what they would write if they were writing to a penfriend for the first time.
Divide the class into groups of 3 to 5 and give one copy of the worksheet to each student in the group.
Show some pics and lexis to provide and clarify language which learners may find useful for completing the writing task.
Ask the students to invent a name and an age for the person writing the letter and write it in the space provided. Now ask them to write F or M at the bottom of the page according to whether they have written the name of woman (F) or Man (M). When they have done that, ask them to fold their piece of paper so that the sentence they have written is hidden, and the next sentence beginning I've got... is visible. They should then give it to the student on their left. Repear the activity untill all the sentences have been completed. Tell the Ss to open out the completed letter they have received. This is their new penfriend!
If there are any words or phrases that the students do not understand ot think are incorrect, tell them to find the student who wrote them and ask them to explain or correct the word or phrase.
