Postcrossing

Postcrossing is "a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world." From the site:
The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.
Maybe this is something your students would like? Perhaps you could do this as a class project, or perhaps you could suggest it as an activity for the students to pursue on their own. The unofficial language of the project is English, so it's an informal and fun way for students to practice their writing. I've been doing the project for about two months now, and I have a lot of fun sending interesting postcards - but I have the most fun finding one in the mail. It's the best surprise! Here's a gallery of the cards I've received so far.
