Your Top 10 Language Exchange Websites to Speak English Fluently


use language exchange websites

Language exchange websites (we also call them conversation exchange, chat exchange or speaking exchange websites) are a fantastic idea for language learners. You can study a foreign language completely for free AND make friends with native English speakers at the same time!


However, once you get started it’s almost impossible to stop. It can get quite addictive, especially if you make many new friends who want to talk to you every day!

Many of you have asked me whether I know of any good language exchange communities, where you can practice conversing in English with native speakers. The majority of those who asked me, come from countries in Asia and Europe. Here on the blog, via email and on our Facebook page.


Thank you for this. And I’d like to encourage you to continue asking me questions – whenever you would like to ask something about English or have an opinion, please share it with me.

So, here are the 10 most popular language exchange communities, composed of the sites you’d voted for as the best all week, plus some that I feel deserve to be on this list, based on my own personal experiences.


We open discussions on our forum, where you can find people to practice English with on Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook and Google+.

You can also enter our LIVE voice and video chat room and talk to other English learners right now:

I thought you were going to mention "italki". That's the best one for me and a very popular one. It works wonder. I've been using it for years. I love to try new things. I've heard and tried some of the websites you listed, and some others are new. The worst one is "Easy Language Exchange" - my experience - Very bad interface and users are allowed setting pornographic profile pictures.

I believe back then when I was collecting these websites, italki wasn't a language exchange service. They offered tutoring. But, I'm glad you've mentioned it. And thank you so much for your feedback on Easy Language Exchange.


i used to practice speaking and motivate my english here:


I would like to practice speaking here
