帖子主题: Find a Penpal   周四 九月 29, 2011 12:59 am

A great way to practice English and learn more about other cultures is by speaking with someone from another country. I write to several friends that I have never met in real life before. We talk through email, which is why they are called penpals. Although we have never met before, they help me understand more about their country, and also help me improve my Spanish.

If you would like an English-speaking penpal, try registering at these websites:

The first and second websites are supposed to be the more simpler websites, but I am glad you were able to get the third one to work!

Just explore the website––click on different buttons and see what happens. Even by exploring the website you will be improving your English. I hope you find a penpal soon!

You must be patient! Sometimes it takes some time to find a penpal. If you want to speed up the process, you can write other people and ask them if they want to be your penpal. Search different countries that speak English and invite them––sometimes they will not reply because they are no longer looking for a penpal. But be persistent! Just send the same email to many people and eventually someone will write back.

Also, if you upload a picture it will be more likely that someone responds. But that decision is up to you. Good luck!

Ellen, I'm glad to hear you want to give this a try, too!

I think part of the reason some foreigners may not be specifically looking for a Chinese penpal is because Chinese is not yet a language studied by westerners. For example, in the United States, it's not common to study Chinese in high school, nor is it common to study Chinese in college. Most people study Spanish.

So if they are not studying Chinese, they cannot practice language skills. But there are people that want Chinese penpals! Remember to be persistent.

I found a penpal 3 years ago and I still talk to him every week since I've met him!

Don't give up Very Happy Be patient and send out lots of messages!
