hi, somebody wants practice english with me?

June 14, 2017



The Duolingo forums aren't great for finding language exchange partners. It can be worth posting in the individual language forums, but even then, you rely on someone happening to be looking for a language exchange partner at the same time as you. Have a look at this post about how to find language exchange partners: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1444346.

There are sites dedicated to putting language learners in touch with each others. Have a look at the list of language exchange sites on the Multilingual learning resources page on the Duolingo Wiki.


hey thanks for your comment¡¡


Hello! Surely I would love to practice English with you, where should we start?


facebook, or better whatssap, do you have?


What is your native language, if you don't mind me asking?


Hi Vanessa! Lot's of people have already volunteered, so I'm sure I don't need to ; ) Do you mind if I correct your English?
'Hi, does somebody want to practice English with me?'


can you explain to me why my way doesn't work?


Sure! When you're asking a question, you either say 'do you' or 'does'. I'm sure you know it's 'he does', right? Well, here you're asking if somebody wants to practice with you. Somebody takes the place of 'does he want to practice'. It might seem a bit confusing at first. And it is 'want to' because 'to do' has already been conjugated in the sentence. Does that make sense?
Edit: you're title would be a statement that somebody wants to practice English with you, plus a question mark.


oh!!, ok already i understand


you're welcome! glad I could help : )


Hi VanesaJim, I am here to practise English. What country are you from?
