I'm an intermediate student of English. I would like to improve my speaking skills. How can I join an online group to speak with other students?
There are many sites that allow you to find English language speaking partners, though not necessarily groups.
- The FluentU blog post Want to Practice Speaking English with a Native Speaker? Go Online! (published in March 2016 and updated in June 2020) discusses several options, some of which are free (e.g. Conversation Exchange, Go Speaky, Busuu and Lingoglobe).
- Find your English speaking partner online on IELTSGame.com, which recommends italki.
- Lingvonet allow you to find a speaking partner by country; you can also specify whether you want to use Skype or not.
- The article How to Find Conversation Partners: The Best Language Exchange Sites on Mosalingua.com (originally published in 2013) discusses the pros and cons of various sites, including italki and Conversation Exchange.
