Hi, my name is John and I'm from the United States. I am a native English speaker and I am learning Spanish. I started to study Spanish because I am planning a trip to Costa Rica in March. At first I only wanted to learn enough to survive - order a meal, ask for directions, and so on; but now my goal is to become conversational so that I can talk to natives and make new friends.
I am looking for partners that are willing to speak slowly and clearly with me, and I promise to do the same. I have only been studying for a few months, so you will need to be very patient with me while I ask you to repeat phrases several times and look up unfamiliar words in the dictionary. I will also be very patient with you.
I am able to use Skype after 8:00 PM EST most weekdays and any time on the weekends.
