I'm fluent in Russian and I'm now learning Ukrainian. In order to speak the language properly I need more practice face to face. I'm looking for someone who would be interested in talking on-line one or two hours per week via Skype or Zoom. I would prefer to improve my speech in scientific and theocratic topics but learning every day language is also important. If you are serious about improving your English I'll be happy to help you improve if you help me with my Ukrainian : ).

Hello! I’m looking for friends around my age who are willing to teach/help me out with Korean. These days I’ve started my journey on learning Korean but it ain’t going to well. Also, those who are also trying to learn Korean are welcome, maybe we can learn together. I’m an introvert so I’m a bit shy but once you get to know me I become really talkative. [Update: I'm a full time college student so I am quite busy with school work, I might respond really late; sorry. ]

I'm Kristine. Learning a new language is one of my hobbies. For me, living in a place with so much diversity and be surrounded with people who speaks different languages is AWESOME! If you need help in learning English just send me a message. I am very chill and patient when it comes to studying and teaching somebody. Female language partners only :)

I live in Chicago and have traveled to Italy and Europe. I am interested in Italian culture, economics and politics. In the past I have been an electronic designer. However, my most recent employment is photographer and videomaker. Although I have been studying Italian for many years I need to speak to mother tongue people to improve my Italian. I would be glad to assist with American English.

I have spent a few years improving my German by speaking language partners, and in the last year or so began learning French and so am also now looking for people to practice French with. My interests include music of all varieties from punk to progressive rock to experimental composition. I watch a lot of art house cinema as well as horror, I read everything from 19th century Russian literature to 1970s and '80s science fiction. I am currently reading The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.

Hello! My name is Matthew. I love learning languages and practice whenever I can. I'm a native English speaker and I'm seriously working on improving my Spanish. It would be great to chat with someone who's learning English so we could both help each other. I think face to face chats are great but I'm open to chatting through whatever means are best. Let's have some fun with it!

Hi, my name is Saul, and I'm from the U.S. I have been learning Hebrew throughout all of my 4 years in high school. I have loved the whole learning experience; as a 19 year old college student, I am very sad that the university I am currently attending does not offer Hebrew as a foreign language. I still sometimes learn Hebrew on my own, but I would love to communicate with any native speakers out there. I would also love to teach anyone English, and I talk in Russian with my family.

Привет. Я перестал изучать русский несколько лет назад, и я был бы рад эту учебу продолжить. Этот способ самый лучший для меня. Было очень интересно в прошлий раз, и надеюсь этот опыт повторить. Конечно, сколько могу, помогу вам на английском.
