Cocova

18 Mar

Last year my twin 9 year old daughters started a little blog about their life.  We thought it would be a great way for them to practice writing English on a somewhat regular basis.  They are schooled mainly in Dutch and French.  On top of that they do Italian as a third language at school.  So in other words, although their “mother tongue” is English…their written English was pretty atrocious.

Amazingly enough since they started the blog their written English has really improved and more importantly they feel much more comfortable writing in English (mistakes and all). They’ve written/filmed some pretty neat posts about some of the creative things they do.  Here are a few of my favourite (here are the actual links as well as the videos from youtube).
