Hi! My name is Eva and I recently moved to Helsinki. I was born and grew up in London but my family is Spanish, and I also lived in Madrid. So I am lucky to have two native languages! I am also a qualified English teacher and taught for 4 years.
I have just started learning Finnish and would love somebody to practice with. Central Helsinki would be perfect.
I am happy to help with your Spanish, English or French (to high intermediate level). I would like someone who is keen to practice but can also be relaxed and enjoy making mistakes 😊
I have been working as a computer programmer communicating with some foreign colleagues in English. Some times ago I decided to change my career plans. I think I would like to keep up my English in this way.
If you want to learn or practice english or finnish, and can teach me japanese or help me practice japanese, please message me, I would be glad to have fun conversations in any language!
Hei, olen Kari Suomesta. Jos haluat vaikkapa vain keskustella ihan huvin vuoksi, tai oppia suomea tai englantia, ja ymmärrät japania ja voit auttaa minua harjoittelemaan, olisi oikein mukava saada viestiä.
My name is Elina. I'm 18 years old and I live in Helsinki, in Finland.
I am looking for a language exchange partner to study Korean.
I'd be happy to help you to learn English and Finnish in exchange.
I'll start with a question instead of a greeting to a Jane/Joe Doe.
How did you find me on here?
Feel free to message me in any way you wish. I'd prefer Whatsapp over e-mail.
WhatsApp <- I know it's Indonesian number, but it really is my WhatsApp lol. Ask me about it if you're shy and have no other questions in the beginning.
My hobbies are learning instruments, singing, dancing pretty much anything that makes me move.
Other hobbies would be any social interaction or sport. Too many to count, feel free to ask my favorites.
I'd love to find a great friend on here, if you know of one let me know name & WhatsApp to that friend.
Tried uploading several pictures.. Got rejected.. Something about big size is all I remember them complaining about.. I feel a picture would be a good way of describing my looks....... But let's try words instead.
I'm not tall, freckly, long haired, grumpy nor boring.. Find antonyms for all those words and you'll have a pretty good description of me.
Bigots from ruining your day. You just have to aim in their nostrils with a DYI peas-gun.
If you're only half as funny as the little squirrel in those Ice Age movies.. I'd be more than happy to purr a conversation with you.. If you know what I mean.
Pursue a conversation is what I mean...
How far can this go?
I'll give you a star in our first conversation if you made it this far.
- Your Highness.
I've always wanted to be called that, lol. Either that or be knighted.
If you know a guy who knows a gal that can contact the lady sitting at the throne all day long eating peanuts..... (LongasS-shorts)*: Send her peas from me, and ask if she'll knight me just for a day.. Wouldn't wanna be a "Sir" all my life now would I?
Please be weird.. you.. Whoever you are.. just please.. For the sake of our future chats / calls.. It'd be so much easier to get along and have fun..
Funny that those are my initials, I rarely shut up.
My name is Cecilia, and I am 28 years old. I am born in Finland, but my native language is Swedish, my whole family is Swedish speaking. My second language is English.
I am about to move to Sweitherland, and would love to learn German! :)
I love traveling with my husband, I also love art, to take photos and write stories.
I am Toby, from China. I have been living in Helsinki, Finland since 2017. It's my goal to practice English because I have a plan to exchange in NYC or other cities in the US. I am hoping to find a native English speaker who is able to chat regularly. In return, I am willing to practice your Mandarin. I have the experience to teach Mandarin in Beijing in 2016.
By the way, I learned a little Finnish and I plan to learn Swedish from this September. If you are interested in Nordic languages, I am glad to share the materials and perhaps recommend some courses.
I like music, movie, yoga, skiing, and workout.
Hello, my name is Janni, I born in Russia and live in Helsinki, Funland. I learn Finnish, because I moving to Finland recently. Also I learn English. If you’re interested in learning Russian write to us ;-)

Tällä kesalla aion asua helsingissa, eli jos sinä asut myös helsingissa tällä kesalla me voisimee tavata ja auttaa toisensa.
Hey! How are you doing? Would you like to create a language tandem with me in which we can help each other and improve our language skills at the speed of a rocket? Now the summer comes and I have time to do those things that I love and need, and that means for me... learning languages! I'll be glad to help you, just send me a message an d let's meet.
Living with life
When i wrote my first letters, it never entered my mind that with the passing years I would find myself in the text boxes of web pages writing about me.
my belief and my life have advanced like a glacial river, a torrent of sacred water born in the hidden heart of the Himalayan mountains, endlessly steering the flow of its current towards arnab, the sea. My opinions rejected nothing it could carry along in its course; it accepted passion, unravelled mystery and worked its way into the heart of the people who hear me.
i had to suffer and struggle, to love and sing; i drew my worldly share of triumphs and defeats, i tasted bread and blood. What more can a human want? And all the choices, tears or kisses, loneliness or the fraternity of man, survive in my opinions and are as essential part of it, because i have lived for my belief, and my opinions have nourished everything i have striven for.
Wanna learn French and Spanish (out of Passion) and Finnish and Swedish (to put life at ease). A serious photographer by passion, well travelled and well read as well. Don't have all of the time of my life. But if I always successfully make time for what I like.
I'm 33yo (married) native Finnish lady from the capital of Finland, Helsinki.
I have studied/been talking in English for 24 years, so I'd say I'm fluent in that one ;) I understand Swedish to an extent, and have dabbled in Italian, Japanese and Hungarian but due to my current interest I'm mostly invested in learning Korean at the moment.
I have studied it for 2 years or so (once a week + self study) so I'm at a very beginner level.
I have been interested in Korea since 2012 mostly for the culture and cuisine. After our first trip I got intersted in the Korean cosmetics, dramas and pop music :)
We visited Seoul Korea in 2016, then Seoul&Jeju in 2017 and soon (September 2019) we're visiting for the third time!
I have two dogs and I'm a very family-oriented person. I love reading, cooking&baking and travelling.
Howdy, just a bored student who could use her time to learn more languages. I like food, all kinds of food. My hobbies vary from martial arts to doing all kinds of crazy stuff. I want to go on a road trip somewhere real bad!
I'm Taru, a 17-year-old girl from Finland! My English is very fluent and native languages are Finnish and Swedish.
I love baseball and fitness but also music and different cultures.
My dream would be fluent in Korean, Mandarin or/and Japnese . Let's be friends!
I'm interested in getting to know new people. I'm pretty confident with my English so I can help you with that. We can text in this app or maybe on email or Kakaotalk (which one makes you comfortable). Also, I would be happy if you helped me with Korean in return.
