Email Exchange of Language and Cultures (Penpals)

Language Exchange > Pen-pals > Country > United States > Durham Pen Pals (Pen Friends)



A language exchange with a pen pal from Durham is an excellent way to make a friend from Durham, learn about its culture and improve your foreign language skills.

This type of exchange is suitable for langauge learners of all skill levels, even beginners. Because you have a common goal to help each other learn while discussing common interests, you are likely to make meaningful friendships.

Compared to live conversation, there is less pressure, because you can take your time to use a dictionary or refer to your lessons at a time of your convenience. It is also a great way to improve your writing, reading and grammar skills.
