My language exchange partner is

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.

My learning goals

I want to learn these languages too communicate better with my friends and family who speak those languages. I want to be able to know what I hear and what to say.

Ideal language community 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 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
