Does anybody know a good social network for practicing English?

Hey guys! Does anybody know a good social network for practicing English? I'm Brazilian and really want to learn it, so I think that's a good way. I await your responses!'

Check out an app called Tandem. There is a lot of great people there to talk to.

I think https://hinative.com/ works. It's predecessor site lang-8 was basically a social network for checking writing. It looks like that is still available, with more possibilities as well.

There's a list of language exchange sites on the Multilingual learning resources page on the Duolingo Wiki.

Hi anaflpedro!
I don't know any websites, but do you mind if I correct your English?
'Hey guys! Does anybody know a good social network for practicing English? I'm Brazilian and really want to learn it, so I think that's a good way. I await your responses!'
If you say 'someone knows a good social network for practicing English', you are stating yes, somebody knows. So instead you have to say, 'does anybody know a good social network ...'. The reason you say 'does anybody know' instead of 'does anybody knows' is because 'anybody' takes the place of 'he', and he knows, is well, 'knows'.
You could either say '...social network to practice English,' or '...social network for practicing English'.
You say 'really want to learn it', to make is understandable that you want to learn English, or it. Otherwise, for all we know, you could really want to learn to dance! Of course, we do know because of the sentence, but for perfect English grammar that's how you do it.
Lastly, 'I hope your answers' doesn't work, instead you could say 'I hope your answer come quickly', or something like that, but it sounds better to say 'I await your responses', or 'I hope you reply soon!'.
But, your English is pretty darn good : )
I hope you find a website!

I was very happy with your comment. I'll fix it right away so I can train my English while I reply. The way is not easy, but becoming fluent is my greatest dream. So thank you so much for the attention you had with me. :)
