Pen pal, the best way to meet the world
First of all, you can meet your pen pal through Instagram. If you search for a pen pal on Instagram, you can find an Instagram account that helps you make pen pal friends. What you have to do is quite simple. Write a brief self-introduction and send a direct message (DM) to the Instagram accpoount. That is all you have to do.
An example of a self-introduction would be something like this. “Hi! My name is Jiwon! I am 18 years old and I live in Korea. I like to play games and watch movies! I want to share my daily life with you! I can write both DMs and letters! It would be nice to exchange gifts on special days like birthdays and Christmas! I want to be pen pals with a girl around my age! I hope we can keep in touch for a long time!”
In a few days, the DM you send will be posted on the Instagram page, and you will get a lot of DMs from people who want to be pen pals with you after seeing your post. When choosing a friend after receiving the DMs from the people, you can consider their age, gender, country, or hobbies. I recommend you to think carefully about what country your friend lives in and what kind of hobby the friend has. In some countries, it may take too long to send a letter or package, or there might be a high risk of loss. In addition, if your hobbies are too different, it may be difficult to find common interests and have something to talk about.
I think a pen pal activity is the best way to learn other countries’ culture. You can also learn various English or other foreign language expressions by sharing letters and text messages. You can have a fun experience exchanging letters or real gifts.
