How do you find pen pals for people like me who are learning German and think maybe it'd be a good idea to have someone as a pen pal who is a native German?

  • Are you looking for traditional mail or e-mail? – Tim Jan 6 '12 at 15:50

There is a website of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum where you can easily find a tandem partner for example for email-conversations. This was very useful for me.


You can use a penpal site like http://www.penpalpassport.com to find a language exchange partner. I'm learning English so if you want to practice then I'm happy.

    Thanks for adding another site! However, while I appreciate your intention to learn English, that part of your question is probably better off in a comment. – mthomas Jun 4 '13 at 20:35
