Would like someone to speak German with
Hi, my name is Jamie and Im from the US. I am learning german and I am probably around A2 level in reading and writing and about two thirds done with the duolingo tree. No one around me speaks german, so I never get to speak it at all. Quite difficult to practice. So far I have been watching movies and videos in german to learn listening. I am hoping to find some friends on here to practice speaking, writing, and reading with. Would anyone like to join me? :)

Verstehst du mich bisher? :P Wenn ja, können wir dann, auf Skype, einander als Freund hinzufügen. Ich spreche gar nicht fließend Deutsch, jedoch ich "this and that" weiß. xD Anfangs will ich nicht mit dem Video sprechen, aber vielleicht später, wenn ich mich sicher fühlen. Wenn du interesse hast, schick mir eine Nachricht mit deinem Steamkontonamen.
Außerdem bin ich 28 Jahre alt und ich wohne in England. (hab aber nicht die beste Internetverbindung)
I don't know if I'm ready to get in German conversations right now, but would be good to keep in touch with people who are learning or already learned it, by the same reason as you. Would be good to train my English as well, because I don't use it very much and I feel kind of frightened with my vocabulary sometimes.
I am an American English native speaker who needs a great deal of practice speaking German. I studied German in college and I've completed the RosettaStone course recently, but I am still awkward at speaking because there is nobody to practice with. I can Skype, no camera, or depending on where you live, call. I live in NYC.
I would! I literally just started today so please bear with me, as you are far ahead of where I am. It seems like so far I am MUCH better at reading and writing it than I am at attempting to pronounce some of the words. Not sure where in the US you are but I am in NY so I don't what, if any, the time difference is where you are. Anyway, I would love to have someone to practice with. Hope to hear from you soon.
I'm between B2 and C1 in German I believe. I've been learning it for 4 years and was top of my class last year.
I have Skype but I'd rather write/read first to get to know you as I do with all my online friends. I usually practice with my native German friend on Facebook through writing. My speaking is very bad compared to my writing because I have much much more writing/reading/listening practice.
Hey Jamie, I started a similar thread a couple weeks ago and someone suggested http://www.conversationexchange.com/ to me. The sites been really helpful. And you can converse with native German speakers that will push you to increase your knowledge and comprehension. There are a lot of members who will be willing to help you even if you are at a very low level.
