How can schools participate in Postcrossing?

Although Postcrossing was not made with schools in mind, we think the project can be a wonderful tool to help students discover the world and practice their language skills.

We don't have special accounts for teachers or schools though: all accounts are the same in Postcrossing. So if you're a teacher, you can just go ahead and open an account for your class, fill out the profile and start sending postcards!

Here are some examples of classes registered on Postcrossing:

And you can read more about Postcrossing's experience in a school context on these posts on our blog.

We would advise you to mention on the profile that the account is for a class, so that members are sure to send appropriate cards. If the class has special wishes for what you'd like the children to receive or learn about, make sure to mention them as well - many members would probably be happy to accommodate your wishes.

That's it! If you have any questions on how Postcrossing works or need further help, feel free to get in touch!
