Age limit -language excange?
Just wondering what the age-limit for teens is on italki. I mean I find it hard to get a language exchange partner for my daughter. She is a native English speaker and is learning Spanish and French. Please help. Thanks. S

Actually, this site is not intended for teenagers:

"4. Eligibility

But teachers are offering courses for children and teenager and I also let my kids take lessons after having checked out the teacher.

There are sometimes users as young as 12 years looking for exchange partners but I think this should happen under parental guidance because there are many scammers here. I would first make sure that the potential partner is indeed a teenager of the same age and not an adult. I once posted a language partner request for my 12 year old son for German and French but got no replies. Now I found a language partner for him for Spanish as a language partner of mine has a son of the same age who is studying German. So, maybe you can look for a language partner who is a parent as well and then let your kids do exchange. It's a pity that your daughter isn't learning German, otherwise our kids could do language exchange.
