Write a Postcard
On the Indonesian island of Java, students at a local high school are learning to read and speak English. In May, Peace Corps volunteer Matthew Borden started the project called Postcards to Java, encouraging folks to write to his students to spark their interest in applying their language skills by providing them opportunities to read and respond in English. So far, 60 international postcards have arrived from places including Togo, West Africa; Washington, D.C. and Rochester, NY.
