Hi! I'm Lynnette. I'm an American who has been living in Taiwan 🇹🇼 for many years. I'm the owner / teacher at a small language school called Great Oaks. “Great oaks from little acorns grow.” I have about 180 students who will be taking turns writing cards. My students range in age from elementary school first graders to college students. They are a wonderful group of students! Through this activity, I hope they can learn about places outside of our beautiful, little island. It's a big world!
Hurray! We've received over 5000 cards from nice people in interesting places. My students can choose cards they like to take home. Below are some things which they really like.
