I would love to talk to everyone.I want to hear about culture and history. I love discussing which language learning methods have been effective. I want to hear your passion.

My learning goals

Please respect it when I ask to not speak English. It's unfair to refuse to spend time in your language also. Those who refuse will be blocked without warning.
