  2. Miss.Swift this is Guyvin and I logged into ePals.com and I found it kind of useful on the fact that I was able to translate the student forum post into another language and that you could find your own opponents for the games you wanted to play. I also liked how the site gives you educational tips on being globally active and doing creative writing. I was also able to see other students creative writing skills and galleries of pictures of other global students.

  4. Lovely:

    the ePals site is so interactive. You get to connect to people in so many ways... forums, games, contests. I even tried them.

  5. William: I personally enjoyed the Epal website especially the fact that I can have the option of having an eloquent conversation with one person and then completely destroy another person in chess of scrabble.

  6. I browsed the e-Pals website, discovering that the site has two looks: a "classic" one and a "new" one. I also found that they were switching from "classic" to "new" soon.

    1. Michael, I moved your comment to this post. Besides the two versions through which you can interface...did you find anything else interesting?

  7. Steve. I actually like the website. The part that prefer is where I can play games with any online players in the world. I am actually playing the Checkers game with a guest online player. I am actually loosing because I'm not good at the game. But its fun.

  8. I got on epals the other day and I was really lost. I tried to see if I could find a epal but I was a kind of lost on the site. I went into a forum which talked about the argument between rap and rock music.

  9. I am so lost on how to use epals or what I am suppose to be doing on epals. I don't know how to find a pal or how to let a pal find me. I think we should go over the website a little more in class, along with the other website. I'm confused on how I am supposed to be finding the google doc to put my reflective essay in. I don't believe I am technically savy when it comes to this stuff. Well I think that's it, bye Ms.Switf :)

  10. Okay I just realized that by posting on epals you meant to talk about what you found on this blog as well. I'm still awaiting a response from my epal but the website is somewhat confusing to me. It took me a while to find out how to send an email and during my explorartion it felt like I was going anywhere without knowing what exactly I was doing.

    I REALLY think we need to have a class discussion about all these websites and things of that nature.
