The Story Behind This Task

You are…

participating in a new online experiment. The experiment is about a new way of being pen pals.

You correspond (chat / send emails) to people abroad to get to know each other, build friendships and learn more about the places other people live.

In the past, pen-pals only sent each other letters. Now, a website is trying to connect people through Microsoft Teams Chat.

The experiment encourages you to write (chat) about a different theme each week. This week the theme is ‘The books you must have read.’

As you are quite new to the entire online chat-pen-pal-thing, you want to practise with a classmate who’s also a participant in the experiment.

You decide to ‘practice chat’ with each other twice. In this task, you’ll learn how!
