English Language Fellow Kasey Larson created a virtual pen pal program to connect the United States and Mozambique. The program officially launched in early February.

So far 63 Mozambicans have been paired with 63 Americans. Participants come from different parts of both countries and are of all ages and walks of life. The 14-week long cultural exchange program aims to improve knowledge of both the U.S. in Mozambique and of Mozambique in the U.S. while giving participants in Mozambique an opportunity to practice written English.

Every two weeks, a new topic will be given and participants will email each other, asking and responding to each other’s questions. Topics include: introductions, your country, culture, education, societal issues, environment, and entertainment. This exciting new program continues to grow with open enrollment.
