Get an International Pen-pal

Pen Pals for Kids- Kid World CitizenWhen I was in about 5th grade, I found an ad at the end of a children’s magazine to get a pen-pal from another country. With a #2 pencil, I bubbled in my name, my interests, and the top countries I was interested in: Yugoslavia (as it was called!), Mexico, Australia.

Pen-pal letters- Kid World Citizen

Letters and postcards from my pen-pal, Lily

In a couple of weeks I was matched with “Liliana from Yugoslavia”- we ended up writing for more than 10 years before we lost touch! It was an incredible experience to exchange pictures (I still have her stoic 5th grade school picture), stories from our schools, postcards from our vacations, etc. I remember the excitement of coming home from school and finding her letter on my bed: foreign stamps scattered across a colored envelope, addressed to me with her curly, distinctive handwriting. I can even recall when she told me I needed to start to address her letter to Macedonia, because it had declared independence and was its own country.

Writing to a pen-pal in another country can facilitate lifelong friendships- and at a minimum it creates a great learning experience that enhances social studies, geography, penmanship, and language skills. There are a couple of different ways to go about finding a pen-pal for your kids from another country.

1) Ask everyone you know.

Ask family, friends, and neighbors if they have a loved one abroad who would like a pen-pal. They might know an expat abroad, someone in the military based in another country, someone who is studying abroad, working as a missionary, a volunteer, or even have relatives who live in their home country. Make the connection with them and decide together if the pen-pals and your children would like to communicate via email, or if everyone is comfortable to dust off their stationary and mail letters through the post. There are advantages of both. Via email, your kids get almost instant gratification. If their writing partner uses a digital camera, it is easy to share a lot of pictures, and perhaps their pen-pal even posts to a blog where your kids can write back in the comments section. However, in many countries internet is not as widely used as we are used to. The advantages of old fashioned paper and pen are many.

Pen-pal letters- Kid World Citizen

Kids practice their writing skills, can send drawings and cards, learn to address and stamp an envelope, and enjoy going to the post office to buy special international stamps. Although there is some patience involved (you might wait months before getting a letter back from some remote locations), the excitement of getting a letter in the mail with their name on it is not lost in our digital age. Despite the expense, my kids have enjoyed sending little packages and homemade cards (especially at the holidays) to family members abroad, and of course they love receiving little presents even more.

2) Find a teacher or homeschooling parent who is looking for a pen-pal for their children.

Yugoslavian Stamps- Kid World CitizenThere are a lot of web sites that over pen-pal “matchmaking” services. I personally am a little nervous about individuals who post here, because there is no background check or identify verification. Never post your personal information on the internet for all to see, and I would prohibit my kids from visiting chat rooms, where identities are unknown. However, when it is a teacher, at a school, and you can see the school’s web site, it is more secure. At a very popular site, Students of the World, teachers can post their country of origin, or search the posts to find a suitable class with whom they can exchange letters. Another popular, ePals, you can search the maps, and the various forums for people looking for pen-pals. Many times teachers will be looking for class partners, but there are also homeschooling families, and individual students searching for pen-pals. You could also register and post your own search.

 

3) Sign-up to correspond with a Peace Corps Volunteer (PCV).

There is a program for teachers in the US to be matched with a PCV through the “Wordwise Schools” program. When I was teaching Spanish, we had a volunteer based in Bolivia, who would share incredible stories with us in English and Spanish. A man on a burro came to pick up the mail every month from her high Andean village, and we exchanged letters once every couple of months. Not only did it give my students a chance to practice Spanish, it also gave us a glimpse of part of the world we probably won’t ever get a chance to visit. From their site:

A vibrant two-year exchange of ideas, stories, pictures, and artifacts that helps U.S. students in the classroom learn about the people, geography, environment, and culture of the world from the direct experience of Volunteers living in other countries.”

4) Write to military personnel based abroad.My penpal's house- Kid World Citizen

There are many, many organization who will put you in contact with a man or woman in the military. Adopt-a-Soldier, Soldiers’ Angels are 2 popular organizations that support the US military. If you would like to write to someone in the HM Forces (UK), try Diedre’s Forces Penpal Service.

So get started today: find a pen-pal and locate their location on the globe. Find out more about their city or country from books in the library or on-line.  Get some fun stationary for your kids, and be available to help them write their first letters. When you go to mail the first letter, buy several stamps of the correct amount, so that you are ready when the next letter comes. Have your kids draw some pictures, send a photo, ask questions- have fun with this intercultural exchange!

I will respond to Office Outlook (E-mail file folder) or via actual e-mail! and I would also LOVE to be old-school, and get a valid address for handwritten letters!!!

    I am looking for a pen pal for my 12 yo son. He has no preference whether the pen pal is a boy or girl. He just wants to connect with other kids and learn about their lives. He is interested in Irish dance, tennis, video games, and writing books. We are in the US and he would like to have an international pen pal. As he is interested in Irish dance and all things Irish, he would enjoy having an Irish pen pal.

We live in upstate NY. She is very social, loves her friends and horseback riding. Likes writing and art a lot too. Snail mail preferred.

      Hey Suzanne! I am a 13 year old (soon to be 14 year old) girl from Central NY. I also was adopted from China and I enjoy wtriting, art, and hanging with my friends a lot, much like your daughter does. I also like reading and all of my friends are in love with horses (one of mine actually does horseback riding like your daughter does)! I have 2 other adopted siblings, one from China and another from Guatemala. I only have a mom, but she ks so amazing, she counts as two parents to me. We are actually looking into adopting another child from China. So, if you’re interested, email me!

      Hello,

      Thank you so much for contacting us about our free international pen pal program.

      It’s very easy to join our pen pal program and I am sure you and your students will find it a fun and rewarding experience.

      We are a non-profit foundation that supports schools in Africa and Asia with educational materials. We also facilitate a free, international pen pal program, connecting the schools we support with English medium schools all over the world.

      We have no restrictions on how you want to work our pen pal program, sharing letters, video, pictures, stories, poems…it is all well received by our schools overseas. We have technology teachers that have students write letters for keyboarding, and language arts teachers who use letters as a way to monitor composition and grammar progress through the year. You can customize the pen pal program to fit your needs.

      We connect teachers and schools, not individual students, to insure safe correspondence. We only exchange school post mailing addresses. Email addresses of teachers can be supplied if desired but are not necessary to correspond with the pen pal school.

      All I need from you is contact information to share with the school in Africa or Asia. It really is as simple as that.
      I will email you the contact information for your new pen pal school, and send you a folder in the mail with details of our foundation and the free international pen pal program.
      You can start writing – right away!

    Hello My name is Alexa and I am a 7 year old girl, in Kirkland WA (near Seattle) . I am in second grade. I am looking for a good pen pal and really excited about this idea. I recently read about it in a book.

    • Jennifer says

      Hi Alexa, my son Jamie is 8 years old and we live in Colorado. Are you still looking for a penpal? Do you mind having a boy penpal, or would you prefer a girl penpal, or does it matter? He doesn’t mind whether his penpals are boy or girl.
      Have your mom email me if you want :)

    My daughter December, is 11 years old she is a home school student and we are a traveling family so making close friends is hard for her as we move every month or so with my husbands job. We are looking for an email pen pal from 11-13 years old preferably a girl and it would be awesome for another home school student but not a conditon. Please email me at jushisgurl80@gmail.com if you are interested. She is into nature,travelling, and typical 11 year old girl stuff.
