Conversation Practice

Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone is interested in conversation practice as gaeilge either via skype or some form of instant messaging?

I started learning French several months ago and found www.speaky.com a very useful resource to find French speakers to practice with, unfortunately I haven't been able to find any Gaeilgeóirí on there! Is anyone aware of any similar sites that may have more Irish speakers?

hmmmm try PenPal Schools cuz when you sign up, it says what language do you speak, and then after a few days it gives you some ppl that speak the same language

There is a Facebook group for finding conversation partners. I believe it's called GaelSkype.

It may also be possible to find a Gaeilgeoir or two on italki.

I have had exactly the same issue as you, Speaky was no good for finding Gaeilgeóiri at that current time. I am always interested in having more people to practice my conversational skills with.

I sent you a PM via Facebook.

I just went to log in to my Facebook and realised that i have login codes enabled and at the moment I don't have a phone as I sold mine, so I can't get login codes through text. As soon as I am able to reconnect on Facebook I will get back to your PM.

No problem Krystle, that's perfect. It would be useful if Duolingo also had a messaging function!

I agree, a messaging function would be a good addition to the site. I should be able to gain access to my account within the next couple of days, just organising a replacement phone. Thank you for being patient, look forward to having a chat with you soon! :)
