Are you willing to help a foreigner to learn your native language ? What does it feel like to teach your own language to a learner?

I am always willing to help but not to teach. Here is many requests like: "teach me English/Russian/French" or any other language. But it is hard to teach if you are not a teacher. For example sometimes I do not know how to explain some Russian rules..I just know the right answer.

VERY GOOD QUESTION. YES, I LIKE TO TEACH MY MOTHER TONGUE TO FOREIGNERS, TO MY STUDENTS. ALTHOUGH I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL TEACHER, I AM HAPPY THAT I HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP THOSE WHO WANT TO LEARN MY LANGUAGE. IT IS CHALLENGING BECAUSE I WAS ALWAYS A CLASSROOM TEACHER, BUT I TEACH ONLINE NOW. 

However, I AM HAPPY BECAUSE I TEACH MOSTLY TO YOUNG PEOPLE AND I LEARN ABOUT DIFFERENT CULTURES, AND ALSO I IMPROVE MY ENGLISH BY TEACHING MY STUDENTS MONGOLIAN. I HAPPY THAT MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN MY LANGUAGE ALTHOUGH IT IS DIFFICULT TO LEARN AND IT ISN'T SO WIDELY SPOKEN AROUND THE WORLD. 

I AGREE THAT YOU LEARN ABOUT YOUR LANGUAGE MORE WHEN YOU TEACH IT TO OTHER PEOPLE.

I'm not currently after language exchange but I do really enjoy helping others.  I like being able to see them progress and understand more and more. This is why even though I'm not interested in it right now, I am open to learning about other cultures in exchange for helping with English vocabulary. I love learning about other places and I enjoy helping so I thought this was a good idea. I'm just not sure how good a helper I'll be yet, and I don't help with grammar as I think either a teacher or someone with a good understanding of how it all works would be better suited for that.

I think it must be interesting to teach our native language to a foreigner. Actually my native language (Persian)is not such a practical language in  all over the world so I haven't experienced it myself. Specially in this way I think we can know about the current phrases exist in the other language easily. In addition you can be more fluent in your native language about details that you didn't pay attention them before you teach it to foreigners.

I like to help my language partners with my languages. I have a pleasant feeling when I see how my language partners make improvement.
