letters to Vietnamese students
GWU VSA is planning to write some "pen pal" letters to middle school students in Vietnam. We will be handwriting personal letters to 59 different students from Đoàn Thị Điểm School (located in Hanoi) so that they can practice English. If you are interested in writing some (and getting letters in return!), please contact our VP Emmeline at hae[@]gwmail.gwu.edu.
The last day to sign up for the pen pal program is Friday, November 23 at 11:59pm.
Names will be given to potential writers on Saturday, November 24. The last day to hand turn in your letters is December 9. The more participants there are, the less letters we need to write per person! :) Please sign up if you are interested.
