I live in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and I was thinking about making friends who are English native speakers or have good English, I think it's will be better than Skype or I talki or any voice and video calls. learning from the Internet is good there's very helpful tools and great people who wants to help but in person it will be different and more effective I guess.
There are many english-native speakers in Riyadh , when I say many trust me they are many, but prahpes you don't meet them in malls or any other places such a like. So, you should be able to find native spekaers very soon if your seraching intensively.
Yes not many people but I guess if you looking for something you will find it !
So it's hard but not that hard :)
Are there many English speaking people in Riyadh? When I went to Jidd. A few weeks ago, I was surprised there were very little people who spoke English. I think it's a great idea to meet with native speakers in person but I imagine it will be hard in Saudia Arabia..good luck though! :)
You mean without skype? or do you mean that you want to develop the Skype, wechat, qq or whatever you're using to a "live" friendship and meet like once a year or twice and so on? Because if it's so, I guess it will happen naturally. You don't need to make an offer. I believe that If you already have online friends and you like each other or go along with each other, you will want to meet. It happens.
