About our program
Student Letter Exchange has been in business for over 60 years. Our continually, updated database contains names and addresses of hundreds of thousands of Students, ages 8 - 18 from all over the world and the US. The Students on our database have indicated that they would like to be a Pen Pal and that they are willing to correspond in English. They are all very eager to have their name selected.

You select the country (or state), age and gender of your Pen Pals. We will then match your request against our database and select names that match the criteria indicated. We will send back the Pen Pals selected on handy computer printed coupons, which can be easily distributed or saved. You then write the first letter to the Pen Pal selected.

Every order will also contain a FREE Letter Writing Guide that has some helpful getting started tips, Pen Pal project ideas and a Postage Chart for letters mailed from the USA to other parts of the world. And, with every order of $15 or more, you will receive a special free gift. We are currently offering a custom designed interchangeable charm bracelet featuring an Egyptian Piastre. The coin is set in a gold tone bezel that can be detached from the 7 inch gold tone figaro bracelet. The uncirculated coin depicts the Pyramids, one of the wonders of the Ancient World. This unique piece of jewelry was designed exclusively for the Student Letter Exchange.

Other Information about ordering
Our supply of names constantly changes. On occasion we have to make Country (or State) substitutions. If this is necessary, we usually substitute based on geographical location. If you would prefer substitutions based on language, please make sure to check the appropriate box on the order form. We may also pick an age 1 or 2 years younger or older than requested. We will not substitute for the Gender requested.

If you do not have a preference for a particular Country (or State) we will choose for you, just enter the age/sex you require on the appropriate line on the grid.

If you are ordering Pen Pals for someone 11 or under, we suggest ordering from English speaking countries - Foreign children this young are not likely to be bi-lingual.
