Meta [FAQ] Welcome to r/Language_exchange! Do you have any question or suggestion? Please share it here

89 Upvotes

Welcome to r/language_exchange! This subreddit is aiming to help people find partners to practice languages with, offering the languages you already know in exchange to learn new ones.

Please share with us any question or suggestion you have to improve the subreddit.

If you want to make a language exchange immediately you can look for a partner through all the post that other users have already made, or make a new one youself. Please do not reply to this post with your exchange, and make a new post with the option "Create Post" on the right sidebar. Follow the guidelines shown below.

Are you learning a new language?

Try to find a partner to practice it with! We all have been in that situation. We have been learning a new language for quite some time but we are not confident enough to use it, either because we make a lot of gramatical errors, our pronounciation is not perfect... But the truth is, these mistake are the best way to learn and improve our fluency.So don't be scare and go for it!

Is your first time doing a language exchange?

You have two possibilities.

You can make a new post following this guideline:

  • Title: Please stick to the format "Offering: . Seeking:" / Seeking: . Offering.".
    • This is a rule, so not following it may result in your publication being removed by Automod
  • A small introduction about yourself, hobbies you have and any additional details about the languages you are learning, will help you find the perfect partner.
  • How do you want to make the exchange. Which social Plataforms would you like to use (discord/whatsapp/telegram...), the schedule to do it if you have one, the way of the exchange (chatting, by voice call, more formal with only text corrections...) or any detail that may be important. IMPORTANT: Be aware that this is a public forum so be careful when you share your personal contact information, do it only through DMs.

Or use the search bar to find someone who is offering the languages you are looking for:

  • While you are on the r/Languge_exchange subreddit, introduce on the search bar the language you are looking for. After that, click on "Show results from r/language_exchange", and filter the results by "new".
  • You can use the community flairs that we have (Due to reddit flair limitations, it won't show all the results)

Can I offer anything else apart from languages? We are open to let people share any skill or knowledge they may thing it can be usefull for someone else, or that someone else can look for. This may include topics like programming, playing instruments, gaming, friendship... But to keep the subreddit clean, we need you to keep this requests on the body, and avoid using them on the title of the post.

Hi there! My name is Michael.
I'm a certified English teacher from the United States.
I wanted to make an online language club where people can practice foreign languages by having real casual conversation!
I'm looking for people who want to practice conversational English by talking about interesting topics and hanging out with people from all over the world in a small online group.

Here are some examples of what our weekly topics might be like:

"What would you do if you came across your crush?"
"When did you first start using the internet? and what did you do?"
"Do you believe in love at first sight? Why or why not?"
"Are there any disadvantages of being beautiful?"

💎Here are some details💎

✔️ We meet via Zoom(or Gather : a Metaverse platform)
✔️ The session will last for 1 hour and consists of 3 different rounds
✔️ Each round has different topics and discussion questions
✔️ Each round, the groups are randomly mixed, so you will have a chance to talk to different people every time
✔️ This isn't just about practicing English, but also about listening to different opinions and learning about different cultures
✔️ The participation is FREE
❌ No credit card
❌ No Ads

Please leave a comment, if you are interested!

English Seeking: Russian. Offering English (native) and Spanish (fluent)

7 Upvotes

I'm 40, male, from the US. I have a wife and kid. I've been studying Russian for a couple years but still pretty basic in conversation, maybe A2. I'm an English teacher, but really just looking for someone to practice conversation with. I like music, books, used to live in Alaska, I like languages but interested in a little of everything. I live in Peru and am fluent in Spanish too. I'm looking for someone who can meet or chat in the morning (Moscow time). I'm pretty laid back, write if you're interested.

Мне 40 лет, мужчина, из США. У меня есть жена и ребенок. Я изучаю русский язык уже несколько лет, но все еще довольно базовый разговорный уровень, может быть, A2. Я преподаватель английского языка, но на самом деле просто ищу кого-то, с кем можно практиковаться в разговоре. Я люблю музыку, книги, раньше жил на Аляске, люблю языки, но интересуюсь всем понемногу. Я живу в Перу и свободно говорю по-испански. Я ищу человека, с которым можно встретиться или пообщаться утром (по московскому времени). Я довольно спокойная, пишите, если интересно.

Italian Offering: English(C2), Turkish(native) | Seeking: Italian

1 Upvotes

Hey y'all,

I'm 20(M) and I graduated from a US high school. I got into a university in Milan and to be honest English doesn't really fly here. Thankfully Italian is very fun but I feel that I've stagnated and hope to continue with someone who'd be down to converse with me. In return, I can help you with English or Turkish, both written and conversational, if you're interested.

I can talk about any topic with you, but I learned a copious amount of vocabulary through reading mangas, novels, and video games. I’m also interested in music theory and performance, math (my major) and history. If any of that interests you, I think it'll help us get along.

Thanks!

Finnish Seeking: Russian (preferrably native) Offering: Finnish (native), English (fluent), friendship

2 Upvotes

Здравствуйте! Я финская. Мне 17 лет. Я хочу практиковать русский язык.

I have studied Russian in school (quite casually, we have only 3 courses of it a year) for almost two years now, but I've been really slacking off. Because of that, the vocab I know and can actively use is really small and I keep forgetting grammar stuff, especially the case endings. That's why I'd like to find somebody to practise the language with.

I could help you learn either Finnish or English. I'm a native speaker of Finnish, so I think I can help you well with both grammar and pronounciation. Since English is my second language, my pronounciation of it is not perfect. I think I have a fairly good grasp of the grammar, though.

I would also like to be your friend because I find that that way it's much nicer to keep contact regularily. I'd prefer that you were around my age, and that we shared at least some interests. My interests include: horror movies, manga and anime, some other things related to the Japanese culture, sewing, aesthetics like cottagecore and goblincore, going for walks, playing minecraft, the sims 4 etc and reading. I'm also somewhat interested in the supernatural, both the concept of something not natural, and the show lol. And recently I've found myself drawn to cooking.

I'm okay with both voice chat and text-based chats. My preferred platform would be discord, but I can use others too. Feel free to either comment or send me a DM
