I have always enjoyed learning languages and have a love of different cultures.
I studied French and Spanish at University but have always wanted to learn Polish.
My father was a Polish Refugee who fled the Russians in 1947 as he had fought bravely in the Home Army against the Germans and then had to escape communist Poland. My father was only 19 when he arrived here. My mother was Irish and sadly,
I never learnt my father's language.
I began learning Polish some weeks ago and am a beginner, but I am determined.
So, I am hoping to find someone who wishes to learn English in exchange for Polish.
I live in Leeds in England and it would be great to meet someone who could help. I am willing to travel to nearby towns and cities.
I love walking and we could combine a weekly walk with language exchange (but this is not necessary either)
I am very young at heart and so it does not matter to me, what age you are. I work evening shifts and am available during the day and some evenings. My work has been predominantly with vulnerable people:- homeless people, Care-Leavers, vulnerable families and I currently work in a crisis service. I love to dance and to attend live music events.
Hi I’m Jennifer from Leeds. I work in finance and in my spare time I enjoy live music, theatre, arts and outdoorsy activities like running and mountain biking.
I’ve been learning French for many years but I lack the confidence to speak it, I’d love to find someone who can help me with this. I know a little German and a bit more Spanish so it would also be great to speak in these languages too.
I am a Chartered Engineer and Software Developer working for a company within the telecoms, electronics and manufacturing industry (Leeds Bradford area of West Yorkshire). I have a few experiences working with Chinese colleagues at manufacturing facilities in and around Suzhou and Shanghai but unfortunately I have never found time to learn the language. I would like to make a real effort to become confident with daily all round speaking (possibly writing). I have attended various language classes on and off but usually work takes over combined with lack of opportunity and motivation to speak the language.
Ideally I would like to meet a fellow Engineer or Software person (Science and Engineering background) living in UK.
Besides work I enjoy running and the outdoors, hill walking and trail running etc. I also enjoy cooking and eating all sorts of different cuisines!
I’m 71, long time divorced, retired have a son & two grandsons aged 20 and 16. Have an allotment & grow fruit & vegetables. Longtime interest in health. Do Pilates, yoga & QiQong.

Hi, I speak fluent English (better than I can with Filipino) and I'm looking for a Korean language partner.
We can talk via: discord/email/Kakaotalk/zoom.
If you want to practice English, I'm here to help! If I approach you and you are NOT interested, that's okay - please say so when I do message. :)
I have many interests: reading (please give me your recommendations!), anime, manga, kdramas, going to the gym, kickboxing, going for walks, museums, theatres, and health (physical and mental), to name but a few. I listen to a lot of genres of music (e.g. rock, classical, Kpop)
I'd consider myself a bit of an introvert but I enjoy having conversations with others.
PS: Just in case, I want to make it clear that I'm NOT here for a romantic relationship, but to get to know each other as a FRIEND, have a nice talk and practice the languages.
