    Hi all,

    Just wondered who speaks to native speakers of the languages you're learning (Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Russian etc.) to practise and learn the language that way?

    I'm currently using www.papora.com to find language partners and have made a lot of great friends on there, everyone's really friendly and is a real confidence booster - is anybody else on there?

    This is a video I found on YouTube explaining the basics of the language exchange section: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwYJtCQr2ak

    Thought this might be useful; in my experience practising and learning languages with native speakers is much better than reading a book etc.

    What do you think?

    If you learn German and English Letternet.de is the official site of the Deutsche Post and allows you to sign up for penpals and its great. All together I have ten penpals in which I write to, talk on Facebook , Skype and even visit
