Directory of school and language pen pal sites

Class or pen pal twinning sites

One of the most interesting and easily implemented activities in connected schools is an email correspondence with another class somewhere in the world.

Sometimes these exchanges become the pretext for themed educational activities, collaborations and exchanges of information, materials and even, in some cases, up to reciprocal interregional or international visits.

But how to find a class or co-school correspondents?

Here are some sites that can act as intermediaries. Some have been around for several years and have a bank of ideas and projects, others have thousands of pen pals, and finally some specialize in a particular activity, such as learning a foreign language.
