German conversations/Skype group?
Hi all So I'm at a stage in my German learning that I feel pretty confident understanding a lot of what I hear or read. I'm listening to podcasts, watching Netflix in German, listening to music and so on... but when it comes to OUTPUT - speaking or writing, I'm lost. In part, I know I just need to become more confident and just do it, but it's hard so I don't! When I was learning Swedish on Duolingo, I joined a very active Skype conversation group and while I was never fluent enough to participate, there were always plenty of people chatting in various levels of Swedish. I was wondering if there was something similar for German learners and if so where I can find it, or if people would be interested in something like this? Or, are there some others who are interested in having a chat - even a written one - to improve writing or speaking? I'm actually flying in to Frankfurt in 35 days so I'd really like to get better at this before I go, or I'm going to be very good at understanding what's happening, and very mute! ;)
I had your same sensation every time in every language...german and swedish most of the times.
However this site may help you: it's like a skype but full of people that are interested in language exchanges.Try it, i found yesterday by chance a german that wants an help with italian o-O.
Btw, it's free xD.
I've got in mind now that there is also an app called "hello talk", it's similar to speaky. I know what you mean, the only thing to do is to have the patience (alooot of patience) to find the right buddy. I found once a site (and i've even forgot the name xD) but i've never found nobody :(. Keep looking, i'm sure that sooner or later you'll find someone (at least for german and french for sure) i have more doubts about swedish, Swedes can speak perfectly english without problems, so don't know if they are available to "waste" time to help a native english speaker (but if there is, is surely a saint xD) it would be amazing to find one but it's like gold, hard to find xD...but well, your problem now is to find a german speaker and not a Swede xD.
