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.
