Perfect language exchange partner

Well I believe nobody is perfect, but someone who helps me out when I have a question, or doubt. A patient, determined person, but if they’re funny that’s always a plus: comedy makes learning easier.

My learning goals

To be able to have a fluent conversation with people whom are native speakers, or someone who already knows the language. Also to be able to read, write, and speak the language properly with normal to minimal mistakes.

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.
