Goede dag from the NetherlandsA class email from Friesland
We are a class of young boys and girls from the Netherlands (Holland), interested in "meeting" other classes from all over the world. We'd love to learn about you, your culture(s) and your country. We're interested in just about everything! Our age: 10-12. This year is the first year we are learning English, so it is difficult for us, but we are trying hard!!

The start of the season is next week. The kids get their e-mail addresses, and then we can start. The first e-mails are very basic English I think. But they can work with the internet-translator.
I suggest I make an e-mail address list. I will send it to you. The kids will present themselves on that list.
Email from the teacher in the Netherlands

Thursday or Friday the kids make a presentation of themselves, in English of course, and then I send the presentations to you.

We live in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is a democratic country - we can choose our own government and we can strike if we want - there is a strike today. We have a queen, Beatrix.
We live in the province of Friesland. That is in the north of the Netherlands. I live in a village called Sintjohannesga.
Our hobbies are computers, disco-music, shell collecting, basketball, gymnastics, horse riding, judo, playing soccer and swimming.
