I'm willing to talk with anyone! But I would much prefer to talk...

My learning goals

I want to improve as much as I can, and hopefully make a friend.

My favorite topics

I really like languages, and in particular I like helping people with pronunciation (I've studied Phonetics), but I also just like seeing people improve. I really like Snowboarding, Science (I used to be a tutor), and Fighting Games. I'm bilingual.

Speaking is the fastest way to fluency

Practice listening, improve your pronunciation, and learn to speak a foreign language with native speakers – no matter where you are.
