How to Find a Conversation Partner in English
Learning English can be quite the difficult task, not in terms of studying the language but getting the means to study the language. There are so many different ways to study and learn English but sometimes not all options are available as online English classes can be quite expensive or being in a face-to-face class is impossible because of Covid regulations.
There are thus very few options to learn English for free, but with the internet and some social skills, this is made possible. Here follows a list of different ways to get connected with others online and learn English at the same time.

Tinder is known as the world’s largest dating application, but its uses go beyond finding love and pleasure, in the sense that it can connect you with people from all over the world. Once you have “matched” with someone, you can then converse with that person in English to the best of your capabilities. Doing this continuously will improve your English skills in both speaking and writing because practice makes perfect.
Free Language exchange websites
Free Language exchange websites can connect you with people all over the world where you have one common goal. To learn to speak and learn a language.
Conversation Exchange makes it really easy to find someone to help you learn a language. You can look specifically for a pen pal that you can practice reading and writing with, a partner that is willing to talk with you over voice or video chat, and/or for someone you can physically meet up with.
You would then have to find someone who is active and willing to participate. Once you've found someone on Conversation Exchange that fits your requirements, you can add them as a contact and send them a private message to get all the details sorted out about how you’ll communicate.
Finding a Pen pal
A Pen pal is someone that you can keep in correspondence with regarding what your interest is. Some prefer to be pen pals and discuss books or movies while others choose to talk about art, but there is also the option to have a pen pal to learn the English language through constant online interaction.
With a pen pal, you are connected with someone by means of text only, so if you and your pen pal both want to learn English, you would do so through writing but to practice speaking you would have to do on your own or find another alternative.
