I remember when I was in 5th grade, I was in a small control group that was being taught German. I lived in Cleveland, Ohio and all I can recall was I was part of an experiment to see how younger students would do with learning a foreign language. Through that class, I remember having a pen pal from Germany. For some reason I can still remember her name being Angela. We exchanged several letters during my 5th grade year(appx.1963) .After that class ended, so did my letter writing. As I turn 60 in a month, I wish I had continued with my pen pal. You never know how interesting it could have been following her life' progress.
