Like a lot of you, I'm using friendsabroad.com and polyglot-learn-language.com.

My experience is that friendsabroad.com is good for European languages, but polyglot-learn-language.com is better for Asian languages - I've especially had great success in finding Indonesian exchange partners.

I just saw another language exchange site called xlingo. (It was in the Google adwords for this site actually!)

It looks newly established, but I'll sign up and see how it goes...

Slightly off subject, but I've had many, many hours of chat practice in Spanish by just going onto IRC and entering #mexico and striking up conversation with someone. I stayed with some friends in Morelia and later in Jalisco that I met this way.

I'm sure there are plenty of other languages/nations represented on IRC.

Do you know what irc server you connected to?
irc.something.org?

I've found one called Interpals. It is well established and has many users from all over the world on.   It is mainly a network to find penpals, so they encourage you to post a picture, although you dont have to. You can also choose whether or not you want people to email you directly, or hide your email so that they send you 'private' emails (they fill out a form to send you it). The service is free, but aside from one american penpal that I'm doing an email correspondance with and a few japanese requests (that I responded to and they didn't keep the correspondance going) I have had no luck. Feel free to try this, maybe you'll have better luck than I have.

Oh, I use Skype too. I was talking to someone from poland once and he said, "Earlier I was talking to my friend in Miami, Florida using a mobile phone and the quality wasn't as good as Skype."

I use www.lingozone.com and like it a lot. It has a very nice and simple user interface (much better than polyglot which I use as well). Unfortunately they don't have sound exchange but I can do it with a person I like with Yahoo messenger. Is there any advantage of Skype vs Yahoo messenger?

Hi People,
I'm the admin for www.xlingo.com
we are a newly started site, but new members are joining everyday.

All sites are pretty much the same, features wise.
It's a matter of execution, and how you do better in these common features.
1. We use html for interface, no flash, everyone is used to it.
2. We have chatrooms/forums/member blogs/games. All integrated with a single user profile/login.
3. Your personal email is not visible, notification is sent to your email address when you have new message. No alias email address. Having an alias email address displayed is just like having your own email address exposed. And we all know SPAM filters dont work 100%.
4. And we are all FREE as well.

please check us out and let me know if you have any questions/comments.
