Just found that out :) P. S. Sorry for not uploading a cover this Monday! Those of you who watch Eurovision, please anticipate a few Eurovision covers coming your way in the upcoming weeks.

Visit https://www.LingQ.com My Blog: http://blog.thelinguist.com/ My Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/lingosteve My Twitter: https://twitter.com/lingosteve Follow the new LingQ channel: https://goo.gl/WVnzRS Follow "Steve's Cafe" Channel: http://www.youtube.com/c/SteveKaufmann Transcript: Hi there, Steve Kaufmann. Today I want to talk about conversation exchanges and language exchanges via the internet. It’s something available to us today that wasn’t available when I started learning languages. It’s amazing. By the way, do you like my Japanese T-shirt? We had a team of Old Timer Hockey players from Japan visit with us and we all got a nice T-shirt. When I think back 50 years ago when I was studying Chinese the idea that I could just get online and talk to someone through some magic computer, I mean can you imagine? Fifty years ago it was just inconceivable that you could do this and nowadays there are a number of sites which offer the opportunity to connect with teachers. Some are free; in other words, just a pure language exchange or conversation exchange. Some of them you hire a teacher or someone to speak to. I can only talk about my experience which is limited to italki, which I have found to be very good. We have a similar function at LingQ, but we don’t have as many tutors as italki. In many ways, I don’t think we do it as well. Some parts of it I think we do better, but when I can find a tutor at LingQ I use a tutor at LingQ otherwise I’ll go to italki. The idea that you can connect with people anywhere in the world who speak the language that you’re speaking, wow! Some words of caution. Personally, and I’ve said this before, until I have a certain level in the language I don’t enjoy the language exchange or conversation exchange because I want to make sure what the person is saying. That’s absolutely number one. Even if I can’t express myself well, I want to understand what the other person is saying and (B) I want to be able to say something in the language because it actually is quite stressful. Even when we’re speaking well, it’s a more stressful way to communicate with someone than sitting with them across a table. It is more stressful. I find that it’s a little bit more exhausting. I should say I have been speaking now. I’ve started speaking with a Ukrainian tutor twice a week and I still have my Russian tutor that I speak to and at the end of an hour I’m kind of exhausted. Now, in order to speak for an hour you have to be at a certain level. Very often, I’ll start at 15 minutes or half an hour and then as I progress I’ll get up to an hour. As I say, it is a little bit stressful, but it’s certainly something to do. Even though I’m a proponent of input-based learning and I’ve spent most of my time and I still do. For example, with my Ukrainian I speak two hours a week, but I’m constantly reading. I’m reading now on Ukrainian history, listening to Ukrainian history, listening to Hora Más Que radio. So input is king, but the output is necessary and these conversation exchange and language exchange sites like italki and what we have at LingQ are a very good way of getting that output experience. As an example of how that works, I’m going to follow this up with a video where I spoke to someone from Russia who commented on one of my YouTube videos that he’s learning Japanese and could we talk a bit about learning Japanese. So what follows here is a separate video. It’s quite long because it’s very difficult to keep these things short, but we speak in three languages, English, Russian and Japanese and we talk, mostly, about learning Japanese. The first 12-13 minutes are in English, then another seven-eight or however many minutes in Russian and we end up in Japanese. What is very interesting in this video, if you have the patience to follow it, is I’ve been speaking Ukrainian and mostly listening to Ukrainian, then I had an hour of Russian with my Russian tutor, this then was followed by speaking to this Denny in Moscow and even though my Japanese is stronger than my Russian I couldn’t get my brain out of Russian. I really struggled to switch over to Japanese and it’s the first time I’ve had that difficulty. Normally, I can move quite easily. Maybe it’s because I’d just had that hour of Russian beforehand and because I find the language exchange via Skype on the computer is a little more stressful than just a casual conversation. I will be interested in hearing from you, bye for now.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I have been meaning to make a video about HelloTalk for a long time now, but I wanted to do it right with screenshots showing how to do things. Coincidentally, someone from HelloTalk recently contacted me and said that they need more Korean learners, like yourself, and asked me to make a video about the app, so I did! This is not a sponsored video and I am not in affiliation with HelloTalk at all. I honestly just love the app so much that I wanted to help them out (they are still a small startup) and I want others to benefit from using it too! I also noticed from talking to a lot of people about the app that they have had some strange encounters with other "language learners." I have included some tips in the video for how to hide yourself from search and retain control over who you converse with. I also have some tips for how to get the exchange going and keep it going. If you are learning Korean, then this app will be of great help to you! There are a lot of Korean people anxious to learn English and help you learn Korean.

*Please ignore my terrible movie making skills. It's a first for me!* Baby speeches are a perfect way for beginner-intermediate level language learners to practice their target language. It's also great for those who participate in online exchanges, rather than in-person. The activity goes something like this: 1. P1 gives a short introduction about something they want to practice 2. P2 listens and gives some constructive criticisms 3. P1 tries again after listening to P2's suggestions. Baby speeches shouldn't be your entire LE activity. It's like a good warm-up! I usually do follow-up questions and free talk afterwards. That way, I can use the same vocabulary from my baby speech during the other LE activities. Good luck, everyone! If you've tried this method of language exchange before, let me know about it in the comments.

If you don't have access to native speakers in your area, one of the best ways to practice your speaking skills is to connect with speakers from all over the world on the internet. Having online conversations is a fantastic way to improve your skills and it's accessible to anyone with a reliable internet connection. As you speak to people across the globe, you will learn a lot about their culture and talk about things that you normally wouldn't with local people. For example, if you live in northern areas of the world, you may be fed up with all the snow you have to shovel out of your entry way and your pride may still hurt from that time you fell on the ice with your grocery bags, but these things could be fascinating for people who've never seen snow in their entire lives. Cold certainly doesn't have the same meaning for someone who lives close to the equator and someone who lives closer to Santa Claus. All these differences are fascinating and can spark great conversations. There are basically two main categories of websites to practice your speaking skills online; language exchange and personal teachers. Both options are great and have their pros and cons. In this post, we will talk about using language exchange websites to improve your speaking skills. In previous posts, we briefly mentioned language exchange as a great way to learn languages. A quick Google search will give you several websites to choose from. One of the best things you can do is to find friends and also add them to a social network you both use often. After that, you can easily arrange video chat sessions whenever both of you have some free time. Truly becoming friends with them is ideal, you can learn each other's language and you can grow together. You should aim to improve the depth of the conversation every time. It's nice to find people who are at an equivalent skill level; this creates the best mutual exchange possible. Starting from scratch with someone new every time can also work, but it's often more enjoyable and convenient to stay in touch with the people you connect with. Every time you find a new conversation partner, it's also an opportunity of making a new friend. Just keep in mind that you need to understand their skill level, know the way they like to learn, and get comfortable with this new person. Once you have great friends on your favorite social network, you can have many conversations a week with people you find interesting. There are two main advantages to language exchange compared to personal teachers. First, most of them are completely free, and you can easily relate to the other person because they are in a similar situation. They are learning, and willing to help you. The mutual benefit is great, and helping someone else increases your confidence. You're an expert in your own language, and they are experts in their native tongue. Together, you can both become experts in your mutual languages. Now, you might wonder: “But if we don't speak the same language, how can we have conversations together?”. Well, there are a few ways to go about it. In language exchange, you can decide to speak your new language, and they can reply in English. This is a valid option and it will get you the most spoken practice for your time, but it can be difficult for your mind to really switch to your target language. When someone speaks English to you, your instinct will be to reply in English. Try to avoid this. Remember the purpose of the exercise and do your best to only speak in your new language. If you are able to have good conversations by listening in one language and speaking in another, go for it. The second option is to take turns; you can alternate the language of the sessions, or split the time in half. Both of you could speak English for a certain amount of time, and you can both switch to your new language the next time you speak together. This gives you the opportunity to practice listening at the same time and really lets your mind switch to the other language. Obviously, this has the downside of spending only half the time practicing your target language, but it can be gratifying to help someone else. There are no hard-and-fast rules for language exchange to work, but try to avoid each speaking your own language. This is not very effective to practice your speaking skills. Sure, it'll practice your listening skills, but there are a lot of easier and more convenient methods to train your ear to the language. Get as much spoken practice in your new language as you can get from each conversation. If you are not interested in exchanging time with someone and prefer to pay for the other person's time, there are also countless personal teachers available on the web. We will talk about this in detail in the next post.

Language Exchange Ireland organises and facilitates language exchanges in Ireland. The events are the perfect opportunity to practise and improve your language(s) while meeting new people! Every Monday at 6.30pm in Dtwo (60 Harcourt St, Dublin 2) Every Thursday at 6.30pm in the Turk's Head (27 Parliament St, Dublin 2) Set up like 'speed dating', you always sit opposite a native speaker of the language you are learning. You will speak English for 5 minutes and then the other language for 5 minutes and then move on to the next table. It is a great way to improve your language in an organised and easy going manner.
