A. Yubin Tomonokai, the former name of
Pen Friend Clubs of Japan, was established based on the travel club by mail
which was organized by the Nagoya Post and Telegraphic Office in 1949. Even in
the chaos of postwar Japan,
junior high school students who participated in the club traced the delivery
route of one postcard from the original mailing point to its destination using
railways and automobiles. And they realized that the Japanese mail service had
already recovered from the war, and held great hope that "we can communicate
with friends in various countries, as well as in Japan, through letters.”
am looking for a teacher wanting to set up an e-mail or a snail mail exchange
between students. My students are French-speaking natives and would love to
have a pen pal so as to improve their level of English. They’ll be happy to
write in French as well in case your students are learners of French.
am so glad I have the opportunity to write to you and thank you, I desperately
wanted a couple of lady pen friends to write to and after joining Pen Pal World
in just a few days I had acquired three. We had all exchanged e-mails. Thank you
so much for helping me, this is a wonderful site.
environment surrounding us has changed greatly. Communication among people
becomes more global and speedier due to the widespread use of the Internet, so
the activities of Pen Friends Club are beginning gradually to change to meet
this situation. Even though we can now easily communicate with someone anywhere
in the world almost immediately, the reason to send "letters” is that
handwritten letters can convey a warm human heart and cordiality. Letters can
make receivers automatically smile, especially very touching letters, letters
with genuine sympathy, and letters kept for lasting memories.
E. Our goal at
Global Pen friends is to find pen pals that meet the needs of our members. Our
online databases contain details of all people available for correspondence
within our pen pal club, including their age, gender, country, interests and
hobbies. Visitors to our International pen pal club can add their details to
our online Global Pen friend database for free. All new profiles are reviewed
by pen pal administrators to ensure our pen-pal site is up-to-date and family

Many people have found it very
rewarding to correspond with fellow vegetarians and vegans in different parts
of the world. You can exchange recipes, discuss issues, get some moral support
or just learn about different lifestyles and cultures. To help you do
this, the Vegetarian Society runs two pen friend lists for
vegetarians: one for those who want to correspond by paper, and one for those
who prefer e-mail.
There’s no charge for an entry on
either list but you do need to be eighteen or over and a vegetarian, a vegan, or in the process
of changing your diet to a vegetarian or vegan one.
To sign up to either list, fill in
the relevant form, giving your name, address, age, stating how long you’ve been
vegetarian for, and your interests and hobbies and whether you want to be included
on the snail mail or email lists or both. You can also write in with these
details if you prefer not to fill out the online form.
Please remember that these are pen friend lists, not a dating service. We reserve the right to refuse any
entries meant to be inappropriate.
