I know many people think that sending postcards is old fashioned and, anyway, it’s only something you do when on holiday.
It’s true that few people write postcards these days. With smartphones stuck to our hands, it’s easier to take a photo and send via a messaging app or post on social media. However, you don’t have to be on holiday to send postcards. Besides, it can be a fun and interesting way of practising a bit of writing in English. This is why I recommend Postcrossing.
What is Postcrossing?
The goal of this project is to allow anyone to send and receive postcards from all over the world!
The idea is simple: for each postcard you send, you will receive one back from a random postcrosser from somewhere in the world.
Simply because, like its founder, there are lots of people who like to receive real mail.
Receiving postcards from different places in the world (many of which you probably have never heard of!) can turn your mailbox into a box of surprises — and who wouldn’t like that?
