I want a pen pal to exchange emails with in a foreign language (to practice and learn). I can speak on a conversational level, I just need to keep exercising it so that I don't lose touch, and to improve my vocab/grammar.

My languages of choice: French or English

So basically, if anyone speaks French, we could exchange emails in French, or I could write to you in French and you could respond to me in English (to practice your English). Or if anyone just wants to practice English, even if you don't speak French, I'm happy to exchange emails in English.

There are probably other avenues for this but I feel like people on this forum have similar interests/mindset so it would be more interesting to have a pen pal from here as opposed to any random language website.

If anyone else wants a language pen pal feel free to post what you want in this thread =D

Let's be pen pals, haha. I don't speak French but am going to learn, so that would be cool to me. I can do English but what else would be good for you? What can you think of now that would be useful for later on down the line that you want? What are you looking to get out of this.

If we exchange letters or emails, I don't see how that'd be different from posting here. You can even just PM different users here. Good idea nonetheless, although these things never work out.

I've also been trying to learn French lately. If you're interested in correspondents who are not and have never been quite fluent in French (though I took classes in school and have been around French speakers intermittently for much of my life, so I'm not a stranger to it), I'm available. English is my first language.

Cool! Since there are multiple people interested in French, I realized that another option is to just start a dedicated French thread on here. Then many people can participate. Thoughts?

I should have one, or several. I used to have one for French, but contact with them was minimal and he wasn't exactly fluent in French, only a little more proficient than I was. Now I'm even less practiced in French due to having not used it in ages, but I'm sure a few weeks of daily contact with different French speaking pen pals would bring me back to where I was.

Apart from French, I was interested in a Serbian speaking pen pal yet I had no luck.

I'm open to speaking with anyone in French, just be aware that it may take several conversations to start remembering things. As for Serbian, I'm not to the point yet where I can have random conversations about anything, only basic things, however I'd still be willing to start engaging with a Serbian speaker.

What is your e-mail?
I'm Brazilian/Swiss (I was born in Brazil and I live in Switzerland).
Talk in english is difficult to me, although I can understand. But, of course, it's frustrating. Maybe you can help me. [EN]

J'habite à Genève, alors le français fait partie de mon quotidien. C'est vrai que je n'habite pas ici depuis longtemps et je fais encore quelques erreurs, mais, peut-être que je peux t'aider.
Pour moi, parler en français est un peu plus naturel grâce à l'origine latine de la langue (ma langue maternelle est la langue portugaise). [FR]

Então, eu consigo entender bem quando ouço alguém falando em inglês e em italiano (duas línguas nas quais eu tenho uma boa base) mas não consigo falar automaticamente, o que me incomoda. [PT/BR]

Quando scrivo in altre lingue è un po 'più facile. Principalmente perché ho tempo per pensare. Certo, faccio ancora degli errori, ma mi sento più sicuro di esprimermi. [IT]

So... to write in english and in italian, I needed the help of the internet. That's what I want to change. It would be great to do it alone. [EN]

Thanks!
