Hello albert9315

It's great that you want to practise your English, but I'm afraid our House rules don't allow you to share the kind of personal information required to contact another user. This is for legal reasons -- sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best

I never had this experience of talk in English. I'd like to talk, if anyone wants too, why not speak with a new friend?

I have never make a call in English because that is difficult to find someone to speak English in here even when calling.
