Let's learn together
My English isn't good and I need to improve it fast, if you find yourself in the same situation, let's use skype to practise and help each other by chatting and speaking. My skype name is haunter_haunter. Add me and let's have fun!
Talking over skype seems a pretty good idea and I need to improve my english as well. Tell me the best hour to contact you at the weekend so we can chat together.
But you did not add me yet. Do it and we'll talk. I am always free on sundays, and also at night during the week. Again, my skype name is "haunter_haunter". However ... do not expect a great English from me, I'm still learning, improving it little by little.
No, I'm not gonna add you right now because before that we have to become REAL friends first. Imposing conditions is not the best way to start a language partnership. Anyway, if you're still interested in talking to me without that obligation, please, leave another message.
Haha! Nice! Sorry, I did not mean to compel you to do anything, and I did not imagine that we needed to become great friends in order to chat on skype. I have some contacts on skype and none of them were great friends of mine when I added them. But later, by chatting and sharing good and bad moments of our lives, we became, indeed, very good friends. Not with all of them, of course, but I do have good friends on skype. Now I'm seeking out friends who can help me with English, for the ones I have made so far only speak our language. So .... Ok, when you feel confortable, add me. I hope that other people would join us as well, the more partners we have to talk, the more our habilities in the language will increase.
See you next time! Rubens
Get alive, dude! You don't have to become a real friend of mine just to practise english with me! In fact, we can chat over skype without the need of one adding another on Duolingo! And also, I'm aware that the true friendship is rare and shows up naturally. You can't force it on anybody.
And you have to understand the difference between duolingo and skype. Duolingo is a language learning social network while skype is a voip platform. Anyone can use skype for personal, professional and educational purposes .
However, in a social network like duolingo, facebook or any other the things work on a different level. At least for me. I know that most people like to add strangers as "friends" immediately and I respect their decision but I just don't want to do the same. For me, If I add a person as a friend is because I know him or her enough to recognize a chance for a potential friendship. And until that happens, it takes some time.
What I didn't like about your attitude is the fact that you really wanted to impose a condition. It sounded like: "I'll only talk to you if you add me first, duh!" Come on, this is so childish! My opinion about any social network is: when meeting someone new, you have to win his or her confidence first and then you get added. Period. Alright, I had enough of this conversation. I'm not gonna talk to you anymore and I hope you find someone else to increase your English. Goodbye.
PS: "Haha!". Keep laughing. Laugh until you wet your pants.
I am in the same situation and I need to improve too, i would like practise with you if you don't mind
