Do you have lots of online friends? And do you know all of those friends in real life? Is online friendship different from real life?

Hello, i would like to converse with someone english. But i have a huge problem: i have a severe sort of stuttering(stammering) and i don't know if people will accept to converse with me besides my speech problem.
Thank you.

Hi Tri Ahadiat,
I'm your fellow Indonesian woman here. I'm very pleased to see other fellow countrymen/women here, also I saw some other our fellow Indonesian on the other version on this site.
The very best of luck,
Warm regards,

Hello again:
I haven't any online friends. Sometimes I chat with people by in order to improve my English, but these aren't my friends.
I think that a good friend must be around you. It's necessary that you can be face to face with you friend. I don't think that internet is a good way to find friends.
See you soon

Dear FRG,
I absolutely agreed with you that internet isn't the best way of finding a true friends, which we can talk and share something with; because sometimes we never know whether they've a true feelings as a friend toward us or not, sometimes there are doubt whether we could trust them with our secret life or not but it's definitely going to be difference if you want to share something with someone who you knew very well in a real life, someone who sometimes you spend your precious times together in laughter and sadness, also of course a friend with whom you really have a trust in.
The very best of luck,
Kind regards,
Umi Zahrok

Hello Moe,
It's nice of you to be helpful, but please remember that the House Rules say that you can't exchange personal information, such as Skype usernames, on LearnEnglish.

Hi there!
This is d 1st time I surf in yr net. As I'm an English teacher in Iran, I need yr hands 2 improve my knowledge. Thx anyway. LOL

Hi ImanRoohi,
You're certainly surf at the right website ImanRoohi. I, for instance learn so much from this website; my listening skill improved greatly eventhough this isn't my weakest area because I've a bunch of Westerner friends who'll speak English with me on a daily basis in a real life, and the most impressing thing is that my writing ability improved a lot even if it's too far away from perfect, especially when it comes to grammar (I've to admit that this is my weakest area in English), also my confidence in putting my idea into papers have increased unexpectedly well. This website really awesome, especially I could trust my details with them, also no exchange email address or Skype within member.
The very best of luck,
Warm regards,
Umi Zahrok
