Once we’ve found you a buddy, you’ll start talking on email and then have the option to move onto Skype, if you want to. You’ll need:
- A broadband internet connection.
- An email address.
- Access to either a computer with a microphone or a smart phone/tablet.
- You’ll need Skype too, and if you haven’t got it, you can get started here. Then you can choose whether you want to connect through instant messaging, voice calls or video calls.
- You’ll need a webcam if you want to see your buddy when you chat, but you can still connect without one.
