Your Top 10 Language Exchange Websites to Speak English Fluently

Language exchange websites (we also call them conversation exchange and speaking exchange websites) are a fantastic possibility, a challenge. You can learn languages completely free by talking to native speakers.

However, you’ll need lots of motivation not to stop after the first occasion.

Many, MANY of you asked me whether I know some good language exchange communities where you can practice English with native speakers.

Most of you who asked me about this come from India, Spain, Portugal, Philippines and some other countries. Here on the blog, in email and on our Facebook page.

Thank you for this. And I’d like to encourage you not to stop – whenever you have a question or a piece of opinion, please always share it with me.

So, here are the 10 language exchange communities, composed of the sites you could vote all week, getting them into top 10 and of ones I think can’t be left out, based on my own personal experience.
