I thought I'd share this magnificent resource with y'all (man, English could really use a 2nd person plural pronoun!).
I used this when I was first playing around with a second language (Polish) which since then has unfortunately come off the boil, but I'd like to see it being used again, so I'll give you a quick rundown!
I made a profile in about ten minutes, just a quick description of your goal and interests, and a couple of pictures to spice it up. It allows you to open your profile up to both a traditional language exchange, and mutual practice (2). This was fantastic for Polish as there were about 700 people willing to teach me Polish in return for English! Over the course of one year, my inbox filled up with a hair over 100 requests to engage in an exchange or mutual practice; HOWEVER.
Unfortunately Swedish doesn't even have 10 native / advanced speakers willing to exchange Swedish with English or any other major languages such as Spanish or German, and I think it's fair to attribute that to Sweden's phenomenally high English literacy rate of 70.94 in the EF EPI, so I'm just raising awareness of its existence to the Duolingo Community, (well, the Swedish one for now, but feel free to repost)!

(2) This is where two learners of the same target language can practice together, this works well of one or both of the people don't have a mutually intelligible language except for their target language.
