Electronically Yours: Cross-Cultural Communication through E-Mail Penpals.
Robb, Thomas; Tillyer, Anthea
This paper offers advice to instructors for arranging cross-cultural communication through electronic e-mail. After acquiring user identifications, checking the reliability of the equipment, and finding an electronic penpal class, teachers should communicate their goals and requirements to each other and pair students together. Teachers can then teach students to send, print, save, download, and upload messages. Helpful hints for successful electronic exchanges, and for possible e-mail activities are offered. Ways that teachers can make the process easier for students are also described. Information on obtaining a penpal class is given. (JP)
