Honestly speaking, if you are looking for a language partner, this is not the place for you. This is a teaching platform with a huge number if teachers to suit the need of different people. It is good to have a language partner if you have a food one but it is not easy to find. You could have people there looking for a couple or something strange so remember to protect yourself. Moreover, language partner is not a teacher and most if them could tell you the way to improve your English more fluently and it could be a disaster if you two dont have a common language which is able to help you explain the language to your partner efficiently and this will make you spend a lot of time on guessing if you are right! Language partner is best for someone with a good function, i can say immediate level. If not , find a teacher , this will save your money and time

I agree in part, but I also disagree. I think language exchange have benefits that a language tutor doesn't offer. For example getting a deep understanding of the culture through making genuine friendships with people that speak your target language. A tutor is only good for how much you can afford, and college students especially finding a language partner might be more worthwhile. However for those wanting a deeper understanding of grammar, a teacher or tutor might be better, especially for beginners. All and all I think there are many factors that go into play, how much money I'd in your wallet, how far you are in a language, and what exactly are you looking for at that moment.
