When you’re ready, check your answers in class.

Sit in a circle. Your correspondent is the person exactly opposite you.
Take a sheet of paper. Then write your ‘email’ on the paper (in which
you thank him/her for something) and give it to your correspondent.
When you get your correspondent’s ‘email’, reply to it on the same
piece of paper. Then give it back. When you’re ready, tell the class
why you thanked him/her and how he/she reacted.
