Will you correct when your language exchange friends make any mistakes while you talk to.

I use this site, tandem, and Hellotalk to study English.

I was very surprised many people said they won't correct mistakes because they think conversation is more important than pointing out our mistakes.

In my opinion, we use language exchange app in order to study, to brush up our language skill, to make friends, and so on. It depends on our object and situation.

But I want to correct my mistakes when I make any mistakes unless someone correct it, I can't understand what is wrong by myself.

What do you think?

I think many people who use such sites are just too lazy to make the effort to correct others errors.

I agree! I am brazilian, and in my country it is happening a controversy about this. The responsible for detaining the rules of language portuguese they are saying that is more important to get communication, and not correct anybody that speak wrong, if you do you will doing a linguistic discrimination. I am very confuse about my native language. But, I prefer that other person correct my mistakes, so portuguese like a english :)
