Finding a pen pal is a great way to connect with people from other parts of the world, to learn a foreign language, and to open yourself up to a new culture. Of course, these days we have Skype and email, which make connecting with others around the world much easier. But the desire to connect with people in different countries has been around far longer than the Internet! The postal service has been helping people learn languages and make new friends for hundreds of years. And, even in this technological age, using snail mail to connect can still be incredibly effective. The best pen pals are usually those who have an interest in learning about different people, cultures and languages. They want to connect with the world outside their borders, but on a more personal level.
Pen pals or penpals , pen-pals , penfriends or pen friends are people who regularly write to each other, particularly via postal mail. Pen pals are usually strangers whose relationship is based primarily, or even solely, on their exchange of letters. Occasionally pen pals may already have a relationship that is not regularly conducted in person.
How Can a Pen Pal Help You Learn a Language?
You don't need to travel to make new friends. Self-isolation and shelter-in-place orders mean, among other things, that wanderlust is at an all-time high. But travelers are born innovators. Many are refusing to let the pandemic crush their bucket lists, flocking to virtual museum tours and "skipping the line" for Disney rides via YouTube. But what about those of us who travel for connection? All you need is a new pen pal.
