Ideal language community partner

Someone who is open-minded, easy to talk to, and that will reciprocate by also inputting effort into keeping the conversation going. Someone that understands that life is busy, and that can’t always reply fast to them.

My learning goals

I have in mind learning as many languages as possible. I do this during my spare time, so I will take this step by step, a few words at a time. I am not in a hurry to learn languages, it’s just for enjoyment.
