Perfect language exchange partner

I think the perfect Tandem Buddy for me would be someone who has a great sense of humor. Someone who doesn’t care what others think. Someone who doesn’t get discouraged even when the task is difficult. Ultimately, they have to respect everyone’s opinion.

My learning goals

Well of course, learn a new language. I would want to possibly speak fluently in a language of my choice. Beyond that, improve my mental capacity because of learning a language. To be more specific, I want to get to know cultures from different countries.
