I expect that my partners would be enthusiastic and really enjoy to practice speaking often. Also would be nice they will be always in a good mood and eager to learn my mother language.
i am looking for a language partner who can do voice conversation with me. in the best case, she or he is learning chinese, and speak english as a mother language. so we can correct each other during talk. maybe sometimes we can send email to share thing in life and talk about the local culture and funny story
I would search for conversational practices with a partner. However I also try to make new friends and increase my knowledge about other cultures.
I have just one language partner at the moment. We help one another to puzzle out things that we don't understand. She asks me to correct some sentences she came up with or to explain to her something she doesn't understand, whereas I ask her to do the same for me. We're talking in the learning process as well. I think we have a perfect language partnership. =) So, I basically want to get corrections from my language partners or ask him to think up a natural way of expressing a phrase for me.
I look for knowledge about local culture (food, places to visit, what people like to do on their free time) and common expressions. I also look for someone who likes to talk about different issues. Sometimes is difficult to have frequently conversations with a partner language who lives in another country. So partner languages need to book their conversations in order to have many conversations.
