Hi! I'm native to Ohio and have lived in Columbus for the past 12 years. I studied Spanish in school and have studied abroad in Mexico and Spain. I have a teaching background and have worked with Elementary age students, and I also have experience teaching ESL. I speak Spanish well but would like to improve my level of fluency, as well as my understanding of colloquial Spanish. I would love to have a new conversation partner who speaks Spanish as their native language, and I'm happy to help them with whatever their English learning needs are as well.
My name is Donte, and I am trying to brush up on my languages. I really want to improve my language skill before beginning to travel again. I am very serious about this and really want to get to a point of being able to hold conversation with people. If you have the same desire to learn and improve, lets help each other. I will also say that if you are learning English and do not speak any of the languages that I have listed, still feel free to contact me. I am more than happy to help you. and i can possibly learn a new language from you...
