    these girls just want a free lunch. lazy fucks.

    look girls. if you really wanna practice your english why dont you get off your ass, get some money and pay for it like most people do.


    you should be ashamed of promoting this type of nonsense.

    perhaps your bf would not like to know this.


    so incredible. I don't believe it.

    ass for language?


    well i guess the guys pic with "free candy" is right on the mark but someone who dips for a language is pretty scandalous in my book. but nonetheless


    i know you want to learn the language but i think you can do that without risking your relationship.

    Your friend must be very very very shy. Sending someone a friend request and asking her to post a thread to help her find a language partner for her to practice her English really doesn't sound easy. And you did it for her. You have just reached a milestone in your friendship. Congratulations.

    I sincerely recommend your friend to find a Chinese person who's also willing to practice his/her oral English.

    As long as you two have some basic English level and have the willpower not to change to Chinese when you have difficulties to express your meanings, you'll improve much better and faster than being with a native English speaker.

    This works for me and some of my friends.

    I ought to note that I posted the picture of the child molester van because I thought the OP was looking for a language exchange partner. Bow chicka wow wow.

    To be honest, I'm half-heartedly looking for some students to tutor right now, but I don't think I'd be a good fit for the OP's friend. The only way I could really earn my fee as a tutor is if the student is already pretty advanced. Otherwise, I'm not very useful. And if he/she isn't confident enough to seek out a native speaker on their own, then they probably aren't ready to be tutored by a native speaker.

    Actually, when Chinese students study abroad, they tend to live together, study together, cook together. Normally they don’t mix well with locals. The environment of learning English is not very optimistic.

    But if you are a person who creats your own environment instead of relying on current environment, then the chances of improving your language skills are much higher.

    I remember a friend whose major is English back in college. She spent half an hour with her classmate almost every night to practice their spoken English. So far she's still the best non-native English speaker I've ever seen.
