Hello Alex

Thanks for your letter about you and your family.
It will be great to tell you about me and my family.

I am fifteen years old. I have got brown hair and gray eyes. I am tall and fat. :)
I live with my father, mother and my younger sister in a big house.
The house have got a garden, pool and small car park.

My school is near my house. It is a liitle far from less than 1 kim. So I walk to school.
Maths and Chemistry are my favoirte subjects. One thing I like them is that I love number.
After school I often play hockey with my friends.
My closet friends are James and Mihai. They are very funny and kind.

Looking forward to your response.

Best regards

Lancer

Hi Rohan26,
Thanks for your comment. Please be very careful if you talk to strangers online as it can be very dangerous. We have a lot of information on our website about online safety so please do read our advice. Have a look at these pages for example:
https://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/skills/reading/elementary-a2-reading/online-safety-poster

https://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/study-break/video-zone/i-it-safer-internet-day-song

We wouldn't call someone you've met online a 'penpal' I think it would be more common to say 'an online friend' or something similar.

Best wishes and please do take care online.

Hi Jimmy,

My name is Nathan and I am 13. I live in an big house in Brussels with my parents and younger sister. There is 2 bedrooms and 2 studying room and 1 big livingroom with piano.

I live far from school so I go to the school by schoolbus. My favorite subjects are P.E. and ILT. My teacher is kind and handsome. But he sometime gives us too much home works. I like baseball, swimming, tennis, football and hockey as a sports. I like tennis for the best. So I really want to be the professional tennis player when I live school. My favorite instruments are clarinet and piano.

My best friends are Sami and Daniel who’s from Turkey and S. Korea. We play football in school. At the weekend, we usually go travel. I rarely go to the park by bike.

Write soon and tell me about yourself.

Best whishes

Nathan

No, I don't have any penfriend. But some of my friends have one and they said that is amazing, because you can learn a lot of someone only by sending emails and also you can find people of different parts of the world. I would like to have one, one day.

Hi Julia, 
On LearnEnglish Teens you can write comments and communicate with other teenage learners from around the world. However, you can't make direct contact with other users so you can't become penfriends. Please read our House Rules - they're for everyone's safety. :)
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I don't have a penfriend, I always use whatsapp to be in contact with my friends and rarely use e-mail, just for my homework or to send something important to print. But I wish to have a penfriend, it sounds cool

Hi!
Nice to meet you too. How are you? You can tell me Dany. I live very far from my school that it takes an hour to arrive and I have to get up very early. I like mathematics and science. My best friends are Martha and Samantha and we like going to the movies and ice skating. On weekends I like to watch soccer because it is my favorite sport.
I wait your answer.
With love, Dany.

No, I don't have a penfriend. And if someday I would have one, I'll be a terrible penfriend. Because I forget everything, and I'm very lazy, so we won't have a lot of conversations, and we constantly lose our friendship.
