HOW TO MAKE AN INTERNATIONAL FRIEND
I am Polly. I am eight. I have got a lot of friends in England. I like to make international friends. Now it is easy. My school is doing the international project “Connecting Classrooms”. We use the Internet to connect to a Ukrainian classroom.
We can talk and write to Ukrainian children and tell them about our country. We can also learn something interesting together. I like it a lot.
Ann is my best international friend. She is one of the children in that Ukrainian classroom. She is a very smart girl. Sometimes I ask her to help me with my home tasks. She says to me, “Anytime.” I am so glad we know each other.
I want to meet Ann in person, so I plan to visit Ukraine soon.
