How do I find Finnish practice pals?
So, I've been using Tandem for finding native speakers for my target languages for a long time, and it helped a lot finding Russian native speakers and such, but when it comes to Northern countries, it seems it's harder to get someone to talk with.
I tried messaging fellow Swedes (I'm currently focusing on Swedish) and Finns on Tandem, but they never answer. Some of them even learn my native language, which is Portuguese, but they still don't answer. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I just would like to have a practice buddy.
Could anybody help me out with this? I know Northern Europeans tend to be more introspective and sometimes even shy, but I wish I could find someone to talk to in Finnish and Swedish
