iTalki people are the best people
This site continues to slowly raise my faith in humanity. It is amazing how quickly people pounce on opportunities to help. It is sometimes difficult to find a question to answer.

Granted, i NEVER read any comments that come after I answer a question as i find that sometimes i take things too personally if someone disagrees with me. But, you are all great. Stay safe and keep learning.

I've just upvoted this thread, Jake.

Having just experienced a 'Why on earth do I bother?' moment with an astonishingly rude and ungrateful member here, I was very glad to see this page and read something positive.

I'm a new user but I've been using italki a lot these last few days and I like this site and its community in general. Honestly I can't keep an online conversation for too long and most apps for language learning are chats, this one was different because it offers many ways to practice languages, not only through chats. I've always liked to join forums and while this isn't exactly a forum, I like this "discussions" thing, I think giving our opinions on different topics is helpful for language learning. Maybe even more than talking to strangers, because sometimes people just feel too shy to point out your mistakes and conversations come to a dead end. So I like italki, it's a shame it isn't very active like others but I like it anyways.

@Jake - what a nice thing to say!

As for the "too personally" - I watched an interesting TED-Talk not long ago that you might enjoy, too
