I am a retired woman and a new grandmother. I live in Seattle washington, one of the most beautiful states in the United States.
I would like to practice and improve my Spanish and help you with english. I'd like to work seriously together, make corrections, learn more grammar, vocabulary and expressions.
I enjoy traveling- before covid, gardening, volunteering, playing with my granddaughter, games visiting with friends, walking and easy hikes.
I speak fluent English as a native English speaker. I have studied Spanish through classes and traveling.
I am trying again, to improve my spanish. I visit a good friend in Oaxaca Mexico every year. My Spanish improves during that week and then falls back down for the rest of the year!
Before retiring, I was a pediatric occupational therapist. I worked in hospitals and public schools.
I'd really like to practice with a native Spanish speaker who wants to seriously focus on helping each other improve language. For me, conversation will be a vehicle to learn about each other's culture but more so to practice and learn a higher level of Spanish and English. I enjoy talking about politics, culture, children, food, travel, gardening, most anything. Perhaps we can each watch a bilingual TED talk or YouTube and chat about it.
I am an American native with an intermediate Japanese proficiency looking for Japanese friends are learning English. My current hobbies are studying Japanese and gaming.

Hi, just found this site and figured I'd give it a go. Still trying to figure out how this all works lol
I'm a complete beginner with learning Russian (still trying to grasp the Cyrillic alphabet). English is my native language, so I'll do what I can to answer any questions you may have.
Outside of Russian, I'm also interested in programming, computer science, cyber security, running, hiking, and Netflix.
I also know quite a bit of Spanish and French, but probably not enough to help anyone beyond a beginner level.
Feel free to add me on VK!
I am trying to learn Spanish. I want to volunteer with Spanish speakers in the near future. I am a retired social worker and I also worked as a junior college counselor recently for 3 years. My interests are hiking with my daughter's dog, sports, traveling, and meeting nice people. I am married with 2 adult children. I have lived and traveled in Europe too. I hope to work with a patient and sincere language learner and feel I share these qualities.
Hope to hear from someone soon.
