Making Connections from Home > Pen Pals

Strike up a friendship with someone on the other side of the world by becoming a pen pal. It’s a great way to exchange your cultures and lifestyles, and even (if you’re brave) learn another language. A pen pal friendship can last a lifetime and leave you with a valuable collection of messages over the years to look back on.

These days, there are a number of sites that help you find a pen pal and communicate with them via e-mail. This way you don’t have to depend on the reliability of the post service getting your letter to its destination.

If you know of any service that should be on here, please let us know by filling out this form.
