What do you think about pen pals?
I enjoy meeting people and making friends. It is always nice to keep in touch with people and learn about cultures as well.
Have you ever had or do you have a pen pal friend, someone you share mail, e-mail or any type of corresponde with?
I have a friend in Portugal and I have shared mail with people from Canada, USA and UK (before I came to live here).
I like it.
The life is short, the world is big and the money is not enough, so in that aspect exchange messages or emails is a very useful way to know more about different cultures.
Call me old-fashioned, but I'd only do it with pen and paper. Electronic messages are too impersonal.
Even doing through eletronic messages it can still be personal. You can tell each other more about each other, share interests, pictures and so on. After a while you can send each other letters, cards or, as I have already done before, send each other books and magazines from places around the area you live.
Now u can have a pen pals who is from China.
Yes i have some pen pals . its really pleasant to talk to them and know about their country and culture.
