My language exchange partner isSomeone with open minded nature and willingness to converse. I greatly enjoy being able to speak with people who have high levels of social awareness and empathy, so conversations that would bring positivity in flow are much appreciated.
My learning goalsI'd like to become more fluent in Tagalog, since I'm moving to the Philippines soon, although I know that true fluency takes a long time and a lot of commitment. I want to be ableto converse freely without having to ask the other person to explain terms.
My favorite topicsAnything that involves music, art and reading. The local bookstore knows me by name, so I guess things are getting pretty serious. I love the process of learning new languages and discovering how each culture has its own history and resulting worldview.
