BRIEF OUTLINE: This is simply an example helper sheet to assist students write a postcard in English. Nothing to exciting here, but it can be useful if your teacher asks you to teach this lesson.



  • PostcardToKasuga attachment
  • Separate (not included) blank papers that looks something like a post card to have them write a postcard of their own. A blank piece of paper or the students' notebook will do the trick, too.



  1. Pass out the worksheet to students and read over it with them. The example is the format they should use to write their own original post card to someone.
  2. The Japanese is there to assist them write their own postcard, but have your JTE go over that part with them.
  3. Have them write their own postcards.
  4. Try to allot some time for them to draw or color a picture on their post cards to make it more interesting for them.


  • Some high level students will be able to write a postcard very quickly because of the worksheet explanation, but some will still have trouble. Make sure you find those students and help them write something. (Tell them to write about anything.)
  • This is not that interesting of a lesson, and in my opinion, one not best suited for us to teach as ALT's. So try to use your personality to inject some fun into it somehow. I made my example letter a little interesting so they at least have a little laugh out of it. Good luck!
