Re: Find Your Tandem/Language Exchange Partner on EF!

Hi guys,

I'm new in Switzerland. Anyone will be interested in my profile? I'd love to find some language exchange partner to learn and practice my French, as well as get to know the local culture and people.
btw, I speak fluent English, though it's not my mother tongue (Chinese).

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
French, between A1-A2 I think

ii) language(s) you speak natively
Chinese Mandarin

iii) your location
Jura, but love to travel regularly if it's not too far.

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
I love dancing! I've been dancing Cuban Salsa for a few years and I also dance Bachata, Merengue.
I love travelling, like most of the people do I've travelled to many countries and cities and I also spent 2 years in England.

v) short introduction about yourself
I'm quite social, like sharing my stories and hearing from others, in a way, you know more and better of life and of world.
I like going out, doing activities and trying new things, but now since I'm a new comer in a small village, I dont know how to spend my day productively except learning French. I need you ideas
Oh , and before I moved to Europe, I'd been living in Pekin (Beijing) for 10 years.


Cheers,
Louisa
