What is a penpal?

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a penpal (or pen pal) is someone who you exchange letters with as a hobby but usually have not met. A penpal can be in another country.

The reasons why you should have a penpal

⋆ Thanks to your penpal, you'll discover a new culture, from another country or another part of your country.

⋆ You'll also learn new things related to what your penpal loves.

⋆ You can learn or improve a language.

⋆ Of course, you'll have a new friend with who you will talk about your hobbies, your trips, your problems...

⋆ And you will receive and send pretty letters (and this is always nice!) and offer/receive little gifts such as masking tapes, stickers, pretty types of papers.
