Greetings from . . .

[Paraphrased directions to my seventh graders]

And now I’d like each of you to write me a postcard.  It can be from your summer holiday, from here in Hradec, from the moon if you like!

Ten minutes later, I read the following:

Hi Marisa,

I’m had a fantastic time in Mars.  Aliens family was really nice.  Yesterday we saw Curiosity.  Curiosity is NASA space project it was really fun.  We went to fantastic space boat trip next.  The Mars library is really boring—I’m not into books.  I don’t like Mars sand storm.  And we went Mars tower it is larger than Eifel tower.  You must see Mars too!

Bye bye!

And I remembered again why I like teaching.
