I'm looking for someone to practice my German with and figured I might as well post here. I'm a native English and Hebrew speaker so I will be able to help with either of those in return, if anyone is interested.
I found all my German and Austrian pen pals via mylanguageexchange. It's very popular in Germany. I've corresponded (and Skyped) extensively for 12+ years with four different school teachers from Germany and Austria and for about 2 years with a theater director in Berlin. They have all been rewarding experiences, and not just because they were great editors and instructors. We've each visited one another on multiple occasions and, let's face it, that's why most of us study languages -- to travel, meet people, and really learn something about other cultures.
