Why Postcrossing?

Postcrossing is not only about sending and receiving postcards, it is an online project that brings the world together by introducing random people from many different places. This is a wonderful opportunity to improve our language skills and to develop key competences.
To be more precise, Postcrossing helps us to:

  • Use and improve our English in a real way! It allows us to meet people and communicate with them in English and also to reflect on the importance of learning this language!

  • Increase world geography knowledge. Thanks to this project, we will learn about faraway places we may never have heard of and locate them on the world map.

  • Discover new cultures and lifestyles. Apart from improving our knowledge of geography, taking part in Postcrossing is an excellent chance to learn about different traditions, historical events, gastronony, art, sports, music, hobbies, etc.

  • Be enthusiastic! We love the suspense of wondering where the next postcard will go to or where it will be from!!

  • Smile! Every time we receive a postcard, it makes us happy! And it is always a pleasure when someone receives our postcard and he or she can smile about it!


  1. May I add one more reason?
    Postcrossing is an excellent way to value the act of writing by hand, in danger of extinction in our digital age. BTW, your project is just amazing, great job!!
