Perfect language exchange partner

I’m learning European Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese so I’d prefer to speak to people with those dialects. Unfortunately, I’m a student and don’t have time to respond to everyone, so I try to find people with similar interests, language level and goals.

My learning goals

Keeping up with Spanish and Portuguese and improving my Italian, as I have an intermediate level right now! :) I’m at a conversational level in French and currently study German and I’ll be studying Hebrew more in the future

No one is perfect, but if I had to choose then maybe someone who can constantly remind me to study words/sentences, won't get mad if I mess up, and will stick with me till the end.

Speaking is the fastest way to fluency

Practice listening, improve your pronunciation, and learn to speak a foreign language with native speakers – no matter where you are.

"One of the reasons I’ve struggled to stay engaged in practicing languages is a lack of being able to talk to native speakers, so this app is a lifesaver."
