epals global community

I really enjoyed exploring the Epals website. There are tons of great opportunities available on the site. I liked that I was able to find classrooms in specific countries. This would be helpful when studying specific countries and enable my class to make authentic comparisons. I also appreciate the projects that teachers share on this website. It's neat to see what other classrooms are doing and the ability to join them or replicate their activities in my own classroom. The storytelling component on Epals could be a really awesome way to give my students a wide audience to share stories they've written in Spanish. They could probably get tips in the writing process and produce an even better end product. Epals is a great website and definitely one that has many applications in the Spanish classroom.
