Pen pal websites have replaced the magazine and newspaper advertisements that Nona and Alice used to find their pen pals 72 years ago.
There are now opportunities to connect with hundreds of like-minded people who want to share the language learning experience with you. It’s as simple as joining a website, uploading a profile, and finding people to write to.
Many people join these sites purely for language learning. So, it won’t be too long until you find yourself connected with someone who speaks your target language and wants to learn your mother tongue.
Here are best websites you can join to find your pen pal:
- CityMity Penpals
- Global Penfriends
- Conversation Exchange
- Penpal Party
- My Language Exchange
- Polyglot Club
- Students of the World
- PenPal Schools
Don’t be disheartened if it takes a while to find a pen pal, or if you have to wait a little while for a response. This is a normal part of the process, and these letters can often take longer to craft if they’re being written in a second language.
