Pen Friend

A Pen Friend from China…with MBL



‘Hello’ – ‘Thank you’ – ‘My name is Cindy’ – ‘I live in Britain’

Do you want to have an overseas pen friend far away from – China?

Do you want to learn Chinese language and the differences between China and the UK?

Do you want to visit China and your pen friend and her/his family…one day?


One of our projects – Pen Friend is to help and keep the link between Chinese children/youths in all corner of the world and enable them to get access to their birth culture in a very unique, interesting and friendly way, which we believe could be very rewarding for their future.


How does it work?
