Keypals in Japan and Sri Lanka

Jeanaye and Saraubh

Fourth grade students, Jeanaye and Saurabh, sent electronic mail to far away Japan and Sri Lanka. Jeanaye told Japanese teacher, Isamu Shimazaki, that she lived in Japan. Saraubh was sure to tell Armav Manchada from Sri Lanka that he, too, is from India. The world gets smaller every day.

Dear Isamu Shimazaki San,

My name is Jeanaye K. Wright. I just came from Sasebo, Japan and I want to learn more about Japanese language. I have been in Japan for four and a half years. I wish I could come back to Japan and see some more sights. If I could come back for two more days I would see all of my friends and vist my old home.

Things are O.K. in America. It's taking a long time to get a house so we moved into an apartment. Until we find a house we're in an apartment.

Your friend,
