Pen Pal and Email-Pal Opportunities

This page contains links to both papers written by ESL professionals on their uses of e-mail in the classroom, and organizations who try to set up teachers and students with e-mail pen pals. Through these links, you should be able to find information about practical aspects of e-mail projects, and resources to help you actually implement them.

Communication through e-mail can be a fun and interesting way to help your students practice writing and reading English, while allowing them to make new friends and perhaps enhance their cultural awareness.

The Linguistic Funland has its own penpal posting system as well. The system allows you to search for classes or individual people, and keeps your email address private. Teachers, you may click here to post a request for your students or click here to view or search for penpals.
