What our members say

I came on here looking for penpals to help me with language learning and I've made amazing friends. I have one I email, one I chat online with and one I send letters too. We have also done snack exchanges which was so much fun. Overall a really good way to meet people. Worked for me anyway.

En esta época de mucho aislamiento es una puerta para conocer otras personas, culturas, etc. Ha siudo una experiencia muy bonita! In this era of a lot of insulation is a door to find other people, cultures, etc. I have a very good experience!

I was a lonely little person before I met this absolutely wonderful website. When I used GPF for about a week, I already have a lot of friends!
