Quite a few users have been emailing in and asking about pen pal services. I found this great website called epals. Their motto says it all ‘where learners connect’.

If you’re teaching a distance learning course you could use this to stay in contact with your learners. Epals also gives learners the opportunity to practise languages and make new friends from across the world. MEC users could stay in touch using epals, compare notes and give advice on the resources they have found most useful.

Having won various awards it’s updated fairly often and there are some interesting news articles on members and their activities. Best of all, its free!
