UPD would extremely happy to get a postcard for my 40th birthday, which is on the 1st of July! =)
I am thrilled about getting a greeting from whereever fate (crossed out) postcrossing chooses
My full name is Svetlana, you can call me Lana for short
I've been teaching English since 2002. I love my job and everything connected with the English language and British history and culture.
I'd love to show the postcard you'll send to the people I teach (aged 8-46), so feel free to write the things you feel like sharing.
Also, I'd appreciate if you wrote why you chose that very postcard, your thoughts, dreams, the song you're listening to while writing, your plans for tomorrow ...
I love this so much! For me sending a postcard is a bit more enjoyable: choosing the card to suit the recipient, selecting a stamp to match, thinking of what to write to make this person happy/curious/thoughtful...
have a happy postcrossing!
PS apart from my job, I love live music, concerts, gigs, musicals, theatre. Enjoy watching The Voice. Do antigravity yoga. Occasionally design, knit and crochet lovely toys.
PPS if you are at a loss while choosing a postcard to send I'd really appreciate to get the ones showing
- local culture
- art, esp impressionism
- royal family
- famous people
- quotes from books
- local cuisine
-flags, symbols, maps of your country
- keep calm and...
- girlish, childish paintings
- toys, dolls, children playing
- positive thinking
... or whichever you like)
after half a year of postcrossing, it occurred to me that postcards are an excellent tool for speaking tasks: describing pictures, comparing and contrasting two cards, making up a story behind the scene... I have even used some to practice speaking skills for FCE exams - perfect
So it would be lovely to get postcards showing people's everyday life, people at work, or fairytales, cartoons and so on
If you've reached this, means you care... I've never thought I'd write that, but I'd rather NOT get boring views of cities, architecture or countryside... unless it's got a fascinating story behind which you're going to share with me
