Anytime you learn something, you'll probably end up making a mistake here and there. But... that's okay! That's why you are learning. It's all about learning from these mistakes as you go along with your dance journey. Have fun with and understand that each day that you practice, you are getting better and better. If you are patient enough, you'll experience major growth and you WILL look back at how far you've come. Here are some helpful tips that can be helpful while going through your dance practices:

๐—™๐˜‚๐—น๐—น ๐—ข๐˜‚๐˜: The term "full out" is used in dance as a way to use the right amount of energy for the piece. For example, if a choreography is really hyped and energetic, you would need to use that energy. If a choreography is calm and smooth, you would need to match up with that. It doesn't matter if the choreography is fast/slow, you have to commit to each move and make EVERY move count. (Tip! Don't always look straight and don't look down. Pay attention to where the person is looking. This will bring you more confidence and trust for your body). This will make your dance look a lot better because everything will be together. So go full out and give it your all :)

๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ: One thing that dancers may not want to do is to record themselves. If you have access to a camera (phone, video camera, etc), you should record your progress. While this might be uncomfortable at first, seeing yourself from a camera point of view will help see what areas you need to work on. You will eventually get used to it and it would start to become something you look forward to.

๐—™๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€: Ahh, facials. In my opinion, you can do whatever you want here. Lots of people believe that you need to have a specific type of facial but honestly, it's all about you. adding your own style allows your dance to come alive. At first, it might be hard to do since it can be hard to create your own style. How do you do this? Experiment! Try out and experiment to see what you like and don't like. Take everything that you like and start mixing it up, creating your style. Have fun with it! Yes, it's always said but it's very true. Even when you do a choreography, you can still add your own style to it (not changing the choreography of course, unless you want to lol :D). Basically, anytime you dance, express and show YOU :)

๐—–๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐˜† ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—ง๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ: While we all have different schedules in our lives, we can all put effort towards putting in more time to get good at something. This applies to dance as well; you need time. So, set ahead time for you to practice on a daily basis. Develop a dance schedule if this helps you be organized. Practice different things each day. If you learn a choreography, don't RUSH! This is something I went through. I wanted to learn so much at once without getting good at the choreography I started. Take your time. It's better to get a choreography down really good THEN move on instead of rushing to learn more and more. Quality over Quantity as they say, and it's very true. So practice hard, smart, consistently, and give it your all :)

๐——๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฏ๐˜: It's common for doubt to come when learning anything really. But, if you let this stop you, you'll never get anywhere. Understand that every great dancer was in the beginning stage before. The only difference between a great dancer and a dancer that quit is just that... the other dancer quit. Don't give up. Keep at it no matter what and trust the process! It will pay off :) watching motivational videos, interviews, and other things can help you stay inspired.

๐—ฆ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฑ๐˜†๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€: You don't only want to learn the choreography. You want to study it. What makes this dance look good? What does this dancer do that other dancers don't do? What details made this stand out? Asking questions like these will allow you to understand dance more and will help you get better as well. So as your watching a dance, try to see what you can do in order for you to make your dance look good too.

self-taught dancing: a how-to | MIT Admissions

Iโ€™ve been dancing on a team at MIT for one and a half years, but Iโ€™ve been dancingโ€ฆunofficiallyโ€ฆfor much longer. as Iโ€™ve mentioned in previous posts, a significant portion of my free time through middle and high school was spent learning choreographies from YouTube. training at a dance studio just wasnโ€™t something in the realm of possibility for me, so using YouTube to practice dancing seemed like my best bet. as said in my masterpost about dance at MITโ€ฆ

I started learning choreographed dances when I discovered K-Pop in 4th grade (it was actually because of a Ke$ha phaseโ€ฆRun Devil Runย really opened doors for me lmao). I realized that countless choreography videos for K-Pop songs were available on YouTube for me to learn, so I started mirroring and slowing videos so I could mimic them.

A few years later, I started learning dances from the choreography videos of legit dance studios (namely 1Million and Millennium). Learning these dances became my favorite hobby, and eventually, I started filming videos of myself forย my Instagram. I would learn a few dances a week since creating my own dance videos was so fun for me. Over the years, Iโ€™ve learned over 250 dances!

getting into dance through K-pop, at least in the self-taught dancers Iโ€™ve met throughout my life, seems to be a pretty common experience. branching out to other choreography seems less popular, though, so I thought Iโ€™d make this post detailing my experience gaining exposure to different styles of dance purely through YouTube.

Iโ€™m pretty organized about things I care about. this is why I have three YouTube playlists of dance videos:

  1. every YouTube choreography Iโ€™ve ever learned (not including K-pop because lord knows how many dances I learned between 4th and 7th grade)
  2. out of those dances, my favorites to do. I revisit this playlist whenever I feel like dancing
  3. choreographies that I enjoy, but wonโ€™t learn because I already learned a dance to it, donโ€™t like it, or think itโ€™s too niche. I use this playlist for inspiration for my own choreography

these playlists are a tangible representation of all the dancing Iโ€™ve done throughout my life, so theyโ€™re pretty great

how do I find dances?

this is a screenshot of my YouTube subscriptions. Iโ€™m subscribed to so many dance studios that I have at least 15 new dance videos in my subscriptions every day. obviously, I donโ€™t have the time to watch them all, so Iโ€™ve developed a *complex* filtering method. just kidding, itโ€™s actually just:

โ€œwhich songs do I know?โ€

โ€œwhich studios/choreographers have the most unique choreography?โ€

โ€ฆand then I choose to watch the videos that fall in the intersection of both subsets.

studios & individuals I follow include:

  • Aliya Janell
  • Galen Hooks
  • 1MILLION Dance Studio
  • Tim Milgram
  • Jade Chynoweth
  • Nicole Kirkland
  • Paris Cavanaugh
  • Ysabelle Capitule
  • Janelle Ginestra
  • Kinjaz Dojo
  • Dexter Carr
  • Girin Jang

โ€ฆand more! I follow around 200 dancers/dance studios. you can only imagine how messy my subscriptions get some days.

how do I choose dances?

as for deciding which dances to learnโ€ฆitโ€™s kind of complicated?

my thought process looks something like this:

  • does this look fun?
    • is it interestingโ€”does it tell a story? how emotive is it?
    • if not, is it hype enough?
  • is the choreography actually good?
  • is this something that will push me out of my comfort zone?
    • is it a combination of sharp and fluid?
    • is it overly technical? because no thanks
    • if itโ€™s a heels dance, does it require space I do not currently have? is it doable, given myโ€ฆlacking flexibility and strength?
  • will build on skills I already have?
  • do I like the song?
  • do I know the song?
    • is it too popular/mainstream?
  • do I like the choreographer?
    • is this too similar to dances Iโ€™ve already learned by them? is the song good enough to compensate for this?

after this process, I bookmark the videos I like to my dance folder, which gets so long that I have to scroll quite a bit to reach the bottom. when Iโ€™ve been sitting on a dance for over a month, I delete it or put it in a subfolder to free up space.

looking through the playlist of my favorite choreographies to do, I notice a few categories:

story-oriented dancesโ€”combos that are fun to perform because theyโ€™re emotive and have some kind of intention in how the dance progresses from start to finish.


  • Love on the Brain by Galen Hooksโ€”itโ€™s deep, itโ€™s powerful, it has a lot of interpretations. the details are incredible and the song is fantastic. the dance has a natural progression and reaches intensity at such a good point. 10/10
  • River by Galen Hooksโ€”this dance is really fun and challenging. itโ€™s so powerful, yet so subtle, which is a facet of it I love. I never get tired of it.
  • Wait a Minute by Malik Zaryratyโ€”this one isnโ€™t as โ€œstory-ishโ€ as the others, but there are a lot of ways you can change the emotions you convey just by slightly altering the dance. I also enjoy how upbeat/hopeful it is

hype vibesโ€”yeah, exactly what youโ€™d expect

  • Pills & Automobiles by Alexander Chungโ€”literal vibezzzz. itโ€™s smooth, it flows, and itโ€™s so high-energy.
  • Rock Your Body by Delaney Glazerโ€”this choreographer helped me settle into my individual style more. I used to look for hard-hitting combos, but I loved the fluidity of this one, so I started learning all her dances.
  • 16 Shots by Tricia Mirandaโ€”the way this combo is high energy throughout but escalates at exactly the right moment? also itโ€™s so cleaaaaan
  • I Do by Apple Yang

flowy/poppyโ€”the perfect combination of hard-hitting and fluid. pretty self-explanatory

  • I Like U by Apple Yang
  • Water by Dexter Carr
  • Complicated by Jake Kodish

my favorite choreographers:

  • galen hooks: the most creative and versatile choreographer I know. I enjoy the subtleties and intricacies of her combos as well as her song choices
  • delaney glazer: flowy, upbeat, hype
  • jake kodish: poppy, more technical
  • jojo gomez: fluid, sexy, bad bitch
  • aliya janell: does mostly heels dances that are SO fun

how do I learn choreography?

do whatever works for you! I donโ€™t really have stamina, so Iโ€™d learn dances in 15-minute chunks over the course of two or three days. I use a Chrome extension called MirrorTube to mirror and slow videos to 0.5x speed, as well as split the dance into 15-20 second sections. once Iโ€™ve mastered a chunk at a certain speed, I increase it gradually, and then move on. at the end, I put all the parts together at a slow speed so I can focus on transitions between them. I then try to dance without watching the screen 3-4 times so I know what parts I need to pay more attention to.

of course, this is the method Iโ€™ve gotten used to after many years of dancing, so it might not be what works best for you. splitting things into sections is generally the way to go, although a lot of dancers I know who have trained in studios arenโ€™t used to learning dances at slow speeds. I guess this is because people donโ€™t teach slowly (it would be hellish to syncopate in half speed), but honestly, if youโ€™re on your own, why not?

how do I actually get better/measure progress?

Iโ€™m less convinced about this part since I never really did anything to grow as a dancer, but when I look at my Instagram videos from 2017, Iโ€™m utterly bewildered at how much Iโ€™ve improved. with the understanding of dance Iโ€™ve developed from being on a team for a while, though, I can say:

if youโ€™re a beginner: focus on hitting key movements on time, as well as picking up and retaining the choreography. choreography retention is so important!! and underrated! itโ€™s my strength in workshops since Iโ€™ve been learning choreographies quickly for most of my life

if youโ€™re an intermediate dancer: focus on fluidity and continuity in your movements. try to both hit moves hard and connect pictures. try to add your personal style (whatever style of dancing comes most comfortably to you) to dances you learn. be more aware of your head and arm placement, as well as your body in general

if youโ€™re a more advanced dancer: work on control! make sure your body isnโ€™t stiff. focus on hitting levels and improving your bounce when necessary and staying grounded for other parts. think about motions holistically and involve your entire body when you can to make things fluid. use more space, keep textures in mind, and hit things sharper. understand your musicality (how you interpret music) more and integrate your style into dancing.


soโ€ฆthis was pretty haphazard, but I hope it was at least a bit useful :) feel free to comment/reach out if you have more specific questions and Iโ€™ll do my best to help!


Shadowban and what it is eaten with / Sudo Null IT News a joke that ends up being a lot of wasted time. Even if you never intended to use reddit, but periodically write on the forums, I advise you to read this article so as not to get into the annoying situation that I found myself in. nine0003

I created my account on about 2 years ago, I posted from time to time, but then I didn't use it for a long time. Some time ago I wrote a few topics, after which I periodically answered all sorts of questions in the /r/gamedev /r/unity3d subreddits.

In recent days I have begun to have a suspicion that none of my posts have received any replies. Neither the threads nor the responses on the forums have attracted the attention of other reddit users. I realized what was happening when, after my detailed answer about the benefits of Unity over Unreal 4, another person wrote "I sincerely would like to know why some people prefer Unity over Unreal Engine?". This is how I see this topic on reddit:

And here is a link to this article in reddit itself.

Do not try to look for my answers there - they simply are not there. Only I can see them. Only when I log into reddit with my username and password. But if I log off, I won't see them.

This is called "Shadow ban" - "Shadow ban". This system is designed to prevent spammers and bots from spoiling the air for decent reddit visitors with their presence. It works as follows: you see all your messages, topics, comments, but no one except you sees them. As I later found out, it is considered to be a more effective system than an ordinary ban because the recipient of the ban does not understand that he is banned and this prevents him from trying to create new accounts with fake mail. In theory, of course, it is interesting, but as my own experience has shown, it can simply make an idiot out of a person. nine0003

As soon as I was convinced of my suspicions, I immediately created a new account on reddit and wrote the following topic.

If you were able to follow the link, you will surely find only a half-deleted topic. Fortunately, I managed to take a screenshot of this topic, here's what it looked like:

If you want to know, this is how the mail of the account that was banned looks like:

.") received 2 months ago from a robot. It notifies me that the robot suspected that I posted a link to a screenshot (this is not entirely correct, I posted a link to a news article from the Steam page of my game from the "News" section, the article had text and a lot of screenshots). The email advised me to post this article in a dedicated reddit thread and was notified that my original thread had been "hidden". I have a suspicion that it was from that moment that I was banned, but there is an opinion that my account could simply have been hacked or suspected of hacking and I was banned for this. I did not find evidence of this (I looked through the "my content" section). nine0003

And here is the first letter on the list, this is a response from the moderators of the /r/gamedev subreddit to my letter that I was banned, the answer confirms that the "shadow ban" exists and is fully applied on reddit.

My further research showed that "shadow ban" is a fairly common system and is increasingly used on various major social media sites. The system has its own Wikipedia page, and a simple search for โ€œshadow banโ€ in Google returns sites where you can check if you are secretly banned on Instagram and Twitter (but the site for checking the latter for some reason lies). nine0003

I subsequently wrote a post on the forum and asked on the site's discord what people thought about it. I was told that this is a common practice on reddit and that's why (and a number of other similar reasons) they prefer to communicate on

To be honest, I really doubt the effectiveness of this system, because just once you know how it works, you will not fall for such a bait in the future: just log out of your account periodically and check whether you see your messages. The creators of spam bots can easily write a script that checks this, which also nullifies the whole point. At the same time, as long as you don't know about this system, they can make an idiot out of you quite simply for an elementary offense. As for me, this system is much worse than the good old human moderation. It would, for example, be MUCH more efficient in the most extreme cases to selectively hide single posts by people, or even selectively change the text of some of the most outrageous posts. This is more difficult to trace and helps to solve the problem. In any case, we can only be vigilant and remember that our posts can simply be deleted by the moderation of sites and forums in such an insidious way and this needs to be checked periodically. nine0003

I hope that this article will help people not to feel like idiots, as it happened to me.

Be vigilant!

Top 10 Language Exchange Apps and Websites in 2022

If you want to become fluent in a new language, you need as much speaking practice as possible. Anyone who has mastered a second language knows that this is true. This is practically the only โ€œsecretโ€ to learning a language faster that actually works! But if you're learning a language that's not widely spoken where you live, there may not be an opportunity to practice. nine0003

For many, the best solution is to spend some time on an online language exchange. If you haven't tried it yet, you're missing out on a great opportunity. And you know what's best? Most language exchange apps and websites are free!

Here's a brief explanation of why language exchanges are so effective and our pick of the top ten platforms for finding your perfect language partner.

What is a language exchange app/website?

The concept of language exchange is very simple. Basically, you find people who are learning your native language and offer to help them. In return, they will help you learn your native language. Traditionally, language exchanges are a two-part conversation. In one part, you speak your native language so your partner can practice their new skills. In the second half of the conversation, you speak in your partner's native language and practice your new skills. This occupation requires trust, discipline and patience. You change the roles of student and teacher; Both of you should be comfortable teaching someone! nine0003

Language exchange is nothing new - your parents and grandparents may have done it at school when they wrote letters to students from another country. However, it goes without saying that the Internet has changed a lot.

There are many different online platforms for finding the perfect language exchange partner. It is noteworthy that many of them are very similar to dating apps. As with dating apps, you need to know what you're looking for in order to find the best app or website for you. Do you want to have regular text conversations about nothing in particular? Are you looking for a serious language enthusiast for Skype conversations who will be strict about your mistakes? Or would you like your ideal exchange partners to share your long-term study journey, send you handwritten letters, and maybe come visit you one day? All this is possible. Whatever type of partnership you're looking for, one of these websites will help set it up. nine0003

Why can language exchange apps/websites help you speak faster?

You study anywhere and anytime

In the good old days, in order to practice speaking a second language, you had toโ€ฆ get out of the house. It's easy to take it for granted, but students are incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to find native speakers to chat with over the Internet.

If you can't sleep at night and want to practice Urdu, you can open the app and find someone you can talk to in minutes without getting out of bed - what a gift! Apps and websites make finding opportunities to practice a second language more convenient than ever. nine0003

Practice real interaction in a safe environment

Many people learning a new language prepare for important and intimidating conversations. You may need to speak to a professor as part of a test, or you may have an immigration interview. Maybe you're about to talk to a new potential client, or even just ask for help when you're lost in a new country. In any of these cases, a lot will be at stake if the conversation goes wrong. nine0003

Language exchanges allow you to have fun in small conversations before getting into the big ones. They can help you overcome the fear barrier of trying to speak and prevent you from associating your new language with high-stress situations.

Want to practice a little before you start talking to strangers? Improve your English conversation skills at home with these tips and apps.

Learn from native speakers

Many widely spoken languages โ€‹โ€‹are often taught by non-native speakers. Learning the basics this way is fine, but nothing can replace your understanding of a native speaker! Every language has a few common phrases that are absolutely grammatically flawless, but that native speakers will never say. It's so frustrating sometimes!

A language exchange partner can help you identify these tricky phrases and suggest a more fluent version.

Get a fascinating insight into the culture

When you study hard, it's easy to forget the real benefits of learning a new language. What really helps you grow as a person cannot be measured by CEFR! Exchange partnerships can develop into mutually instructive friendships. At least you and your friends will exchange cultural ideas; if true friendship develops, both of you will have an exciting new way of looking at the world. At best, a language exchange can enrich your outlook, ultimately making you more compassionate and socially valuable members of society. nine0003

The best language exchange apps and websites in 2020

It takes a little courage to go out and talk to strangers. The right online atmosphere can make things a lot easier and less awkward!

Here are our reviews of the top ten sites and apps. They are not in any particular order - the best choice depends on what kind of experience you want to have.

1. HelloTalk

HelloTalk is the king of language exchange apps in 2020. Or at least a member of the royal family. It has over 18 million users - twice the population of New York! If you don't want to read this entire list, just download HelloTalk and get started. nine0003

New users fill out a profile and the app suggests similar profiles of people you might like to chat with. The chat feature is very advanced: you can send photos, emoticons and doodles to your new language partners. When you earn each other's trust, you can even send voice messages and make phone calls for free! The free version of HelloTalk will be sufficient for most students, but then you can only install one target language. Consider a subscription if you are trying to master multiple languages โ€‹โ€‹at once. nine0003

One of the longstanding problems of language exchange is that it is difficult for students to know when to switch roles and use a different language. HelloTalk has a handy feature to avoid the awkwardness of trying to be strict with a relatively unfamiliar person. If you enable "Language Exchange Mode", you will be notified when it's time to switch languages. With so many users, it's a bit more suited for those who want to chat than for a more advanced language exchange. However, HelloTalk deserves its impeccable reputation. nine0003

2. Tandem

Like HelloTalk, Tandem is a very modern language exchange app with millions of users. It's called Tinder among the language exchange apps, but don't let that fool you: most people are here to learn. Once you've completed your quick profile, your inbox will be filled with messages. This is mostly suitable for meeting people with whom you can just chat. nine0003

With so many users, it can be difficult to focus on one conversation at a time or move beyond superficial topics of discussion, but the app is very nice to look at and easy to navigate. You can leave reviews for other users, which makes the relationship between students more professional and less like a dating app. You can send voice notes or video chat, but there's not much culture in that either, as most interactions are instantaneous. But there is a handy โ€œfix this messageโ€ feature to help your partner without interrupting the conversation. nine0003

If you want to enjoy language exchange with a convenient and modern messaging app, Tandem is a great option.

3. MyLanguageExchange

MyLanguageExchange websites look older than the language concept itself, but don't be disappointed. While no one has updated the website itself since the mid-2000s, MyLanguageExchange is a thriving network of learners with new members joining every day.

This is a simple database of people looking for a language exchange, with columns for short bios and details of what they are looking for. If flashy apps like Tandem and HelloTalk are good for short-term conversations with many strangers, then MyLanguageExchange is the opposite. Once you've connected with someone, you usually switch to an alternative form of messaging like email, Skype, or WhatsApp. Study mates very quickly dissolve into the role of "new friend". nine0003

This is a language exchange for those who enjoyed doing language exchange in high school. You can meet someone on this site who will become a part of your life for a long time. For example, someone you can Skype with for years and then fly halfway around the world to meet. For people who are used to the anonymity and instantaneous operation of modern applications, this may seem a little creepy or even potentially dangerous. It depends on what you are looking for and what part of yourself you want to share. nine0003

4. Bilingua

Some language exchange apps let you (digitally) see an endless list of students. You can end up sending "Hi, how are you?" dozens of strangers, but this rarely allows you to develop a deep enough connection with one person to try to build a meaningful conversation. Ex!

The advantage of Bilingua is that the application combines a modern interface and help in finding the โ€œoneโ€. Which in this case means a compatible person with whom you can exchange skills for a certain period of time. The free app uses a matching algorithm to pair students based on their personality, language level, and what they want to talk about. Yes, it does feel like a dating app, but fans say it saved them time by narrowing down hundreds of potential school friends. Some users find the app too buggy, especially when switching to Mandarin. Worth a try to see if it works for you. nine0003

5. The Mixer

In theory, a big advantage of language exchange apps is that they allow you to converse with native speakers of the language you are learning. However, in practice, most language applications are based on messaging. So what you're really getting is writing practice, not the all-important speaking practice.

The Mixer is a website created to solve this problem. Users should immediately connect to their Skype accounts. You can, of course, text others before video chatting with them, but this site is primarily for people who want to practice speaking rather than texting. nine0003

The site was created by a Japanese language teacher from a college in Pennsylvania, USA. On the one hand, this means that the website is running without a budget. This means that it cannot attract millions of members or encourage users to behave professionally. On the other hand, it was created solely for the needs of students studying foreign languages, without any priority business goals. There are even free conversation starters that help users structure their sessions productively. nine0003

Are you uncomfortable entering a video chat without first checking with your language exchange partner? If yes, then it is understandable and this site may not be for you. However, if you're willing to take a little risk, this site could be a surprise winner.

6. Speaky

If you want to send a message to a native speaker in the next five minutes, you can do so using Speaky. It is available as both a very flashy app and a very flashy desktop version. After you enter your interests, you will be shown a mosaic screen of users learning your language online. You can write to anyone, and anyone can write to you. It is possible to hide your profile from people of the opposite sex. If you are a woman, this is probably worth doing. Otherwise, you will almost certainly get a flood of messages from men who are confused by the similarity of language exchange apps and dating apps. nine0003

Users can't video chat or call each other at the moment, so if you want to practice speaking, you should look elsewhere. Some students also consider the app to be broken, claiming that it deleted their messages for no reason. However, it has a ton of users, so there will always be someone available to chat in real time right now, whenever that โ€œright nowโ€ happens.

7. Meetup

Texting new friends is great practice, but being able to actually meet native speakers is a real chance to practice! If you can travel to big cities, it's worth going for a personal language exchange, even if you feel insecure. Meetup is a website for scheduling meetings of common interest with strangers. It is widely represented in Europe and America, and language exchange is one of the most popular categories of events. nine0003

You can search by city and by language. Meetings are usually free or cheap and often take place in a bar, cafe or park. Sometimes exchanges include fun activities like dance lessons or bowling to give you a topic to talk about. Of course, your opportunities will depend on where you are in the world, but if you are learning the language of the country you have just moved to, what are you waiting for? Don't let fear hold you back - everyone will be in the same situation as you!

8. Language exchange thread on Reddit

If you like the idea of โ€‹โ€‹finding one long-term language exchange buddy, but don't like old-fashioned websites, then "web homepage" might be a surprisingly good choice. Reddit has some very weird corners, but it also has a thriving forum on almost any topic, and learning languages โ€‹โ€‹is no exception. Reddit itself isn't great for hosting language exchanges, but you can easily find someone to team up with and then exchange with them using video chat on another platform. nine0003

Since people use Reddit to discuss all sorts of niche interests, you will be able to carefully check what else your language partner is interested in before accepting their request to learn more. This is another option worth considering!

9. Facebook

If Reddit isn't for you, but you like the idea of โ€‹โ€‹finding a language exchange through existing social networks, then Facebook might be the perfect solution. Facebook has private groups for just about anything, so try typing "[your native language] to [your target language] language exchange" in the search bar. Chances are you will find people in the same situation as you. nine0003

The great thing about finding study mates on Facebook is that you can usually look at their likes, opinions, and vacation photos before deciding to connect. Who doesn't love a good Facebook stalking session?! As we all know, once you've added someone as a friend, Facebook allows you to chat, make phone calls, and make video calls. As if it was specially designed for language exchange!

These groups also provide something you didn't even know existed - a team of language learners from whom you can get support. As silly as it sounds, having memes in your feed about topics like โ€œOnly English speaking Arabic learners knowโ€ฆโ€ can really be very reassuring! And this can be a good motivation if you often put off studying by browsing Facebook ...

10. Preply is like a language exchange, only twice as effective!

Okay, you got usโ€ฆ this is not a language exchange site. Preply is a platform for finding online tutors for private lessons in almost any language.

But listen, without a doubt, a language exchange is a fantastic way to improve your speaking skills in a second language. But such applications can also be very frustrating.

At best, you only learn half the time during any language exchange. It's better than nothing, but it's not entirely effective. There is also no guarantee that you will find an exchange partner who will be a good teacher, which is a very rare skill.
