Likes to chat, has hobbies, reads books, watches movies and tv, exercises. I work better with talkative people, as I tend to give people space, and I can use the occasional reassurance that someone has time and will to do language practice.
I welcome advanced english speakers to practice my spoken english.
I would prefer a message rather than being followed, since I don't use much that feature.
My time slot for skype calls is the evening on workdays in GMT+2 and the whole day on weekends Planning ahead is *very* welcome.
I appreciate people willing to move communication to Skype because I'm interested in audio calls in english, and because it's easier for me to exchange and correct short sentences with people looking to practice writing in italian, through regular reply-when-you-can instant messaging. Correcting long paragraphs in private messages on here is a pain, while a multitude of shorts sentences, dealt with one at a time, are a breeze.
If mention skype very early, it's not intended to press people or push boundaries, it's just how I mutually agree to proceed with people in most cases on Itaki. Regardless of mentioning Skype, I still do appreciate to get to know someone before moving to IMs, specially to estimate their language level.
