Hi Adriana,
You're absolutely right when you say that writing with others in English will really help you improve, but please remember that our House Rules forbid users from sharing personal information such as Facebook or gmail account information.
Here on LearnEnglish, you can respond to other users in the comment sections, just as I am responding to you now. You can carry on a written conversation this way, though it will be a bit slower.

On listening module exam, how do one manage reading the questions within the limited 10 seconds allocated to cover the questions and understand, listening to speaker and reading as well to answer the questions? Please advice

Are you talking about IELTS? If so, could you please ask your question on a page about IELTS listening? That way, other people who are also interested in IELTS listening can see and maybe answer your question - and you can answer theirs!
This page is not about IELTS - it's a general listening page.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Would not mind if i can as well get some listening practice questions and answer sent to my personal e-mail.
