Hi Prashant,
 
I doubt that I'm the one you are looking for, as I am an old married lady.  But I really loved your graceful post.  I just had to respond, as part of my new year's resolution is also to become fluent in French and begin German.  Here's to our efforts!
 
All best,

Hello,
 
I understand now the problems with sending a group-wide post. I can't speak for everyone, but here's what I'm looking for in a speaking partner:
 
 I'd like to practice French as well as discuss French literature and possibly classical literature with the person.
 
If that person happens to be female, of sentimental disposition, and available, that would be a bonus :). However, this is not a requirement, nor is this a conscious effort to find someone to date. Part of my New Years resoultion is to become fluent in French and learn basic German (Goethe Insititute) and Russian (Still looking for institution). I believe this is a small step in my long-term goal towards becoming a well-rounded individual.
 
Cheers,
 
Prashant

Bon jour everyone; what about if we use one of those google community pages? We can all post our "partner wishlist", availability and details of our level compression?Then we all get the address and log in info, and see group communication there? There is a calendar, too?.Open or private meetings can both be posted there, too. It is very simple and straightforward. I will make this page on Monday or Tuesday, and send everyone the link if some of you respond in agreement?

Thank you, Lisa,



There seems to be a big desire for practice partners -- one-on-one, rather than group meet-ups.



My original posting -- for a conversation exchange -- and the response to it struck a nerve: people who saw an opportunity and people who were annoyed.



Is there not a more efficient way for people to match up than sending all these emails? People seem to havedifferent preferences -- some want a partner of a certain age, others seem to be looking to meet someone to date, I wanted a native speaker to do an exchange...I don't know if people could put their desire for a practice partner and their preferencesin their profile or if there's some other way to meet what is obviously a need that your members have.



Thank you everyone.



Judy

I'm actually glad they are doing it so I can see all these messages. I really need a practice partner myself.

Ok, I know I'm kind of contributing to the problem by sending this e-mail, but can we please write to Judy directly instead of spamming the whole group, especially if, like the originator of one mass e-mail, we are trying to get her to upload some photos of herself!

Thanks,

Michele

Salut Judy et bon ne nouvelle ann?e.

Je suis am?ricain d'origine mais quand j'?tais tout petit ma grandm?re m'a enseign? mes pri?res en fran?ais.

G?n?ralement je me donne une bonne dose de fran?ais quotidienne en regardant TV-5. ? part l'actualit?, mon programme de pr?f?rence est "Thalassa," un magazine de la mer qui me plait beaucoup.

?a me ferait grand plaisir de lire, bavarder, faire la dict?e (et peut-?tre d?guster) avec une charmante copine en fran?ais.

Vous trouverez mon profil sur la liste des membres et je vous prie de remplir le votre, surtout d'ajouter quelques photos de vous.

Andr?

Has like the lover his unruly times-
His fits when he is neither sick nor well,
Though no distress be near him but his own
Unmanageable thought."--Wordsworth
