■Who to find languages friends quickly

The important points for finding languages friends quickly are :

● Post your own article

If you really want to find a language exchange partner, you should post your own message and introduce yourself actively, rather than just responding to other people's messages. The reason is simple, about 90% of users just view other people's entry, or send messages to other people. If you don't post your own entry and just send messages to other people, you may not receive replies. But you may receive many contacts from other people if you post your own entry, and you can choose the best person from all contactors. Maybe some of you are shy or scared about submitting a entry, but, actually there is no need to submit your real name or personal infomation and your email-address was also protected. \n\nSo feel free to submit your entry in 【Language Friend】

● Write your entry carefully

If your entry is just one sentence, it may not attract peopole. It's neccesory to write your entry carefully to introduce yourself such as your hobby, your experience of learning language, etc, so that you can "sell yourself" actively to your future language friends. It's important to mention what you can do for your language partner, for instance, "I have some experience to teach foreign students English when I was college student", "I am also good at surfing, I can teach you if you are interested", etc.

● Do not stick to native speaker

Too many people try to find "native speakers" as language exchange partners, but there are not so many native speakers in Australia compared to Australia citicens. Actually, you can also learn a lot from "non-native speakers". So, try to add "non-native speaker is OK" in your entry, maybe it will help you to find language friends more easily.
