Perfect language exchange partner

I think the perfect Tandem Buddy for me would be someone who has a great sense of humor. Someone who doesn’t care what others think. Someone who doesn’t get discouraged even when the task is difficult. Ultimately, they have to respect everyone’s opinion.

My learning goals

Well of course, learn a new language. I would want to possibly speak fluently in a language of my choice. Beyond that, improve my mental capacity because of learning a language. To be more specific, I want to get to know cultures from different countries.

Someone who is really nice like me, very outgoing not afraid to be weird, and keeps up with the conversation. OH and they have to be my age or +1.

My learning goals

I don't have a specific goal. I just want to make foreign friends and find my foreign best friend too. If I improve my target language on this app, then everything is good in the hood. But I think that was a goal I don't know.

"I hadn't learnt English for 15 years and only a year ago I was A2, or rather holiday English. Now I'm preparing for the C1 exam! So if you want to brush up on a language, Tandem is the perfect app for you."
