This comic is part of our collaboration with HelloTalk. If you talk to me on the HelloTalk app there is a chance that Hugh might reply to you instead of me because he steals my phone!
I’ve been using the app for a while now and had a lot of casual, short conversations with lots of people but now I’ve made some friends that I feel closer to and more comfortable with. I saw that a few people expected to make long term language partners right away and were disappointed when they didn’t, but it’s like making friends in real life. You meet a lot of people all the time and narrow down what is appealing to you and what you want and also whether you click well with someone. The few people I regularly talk and try to use Korean with are similar to my age with similar interests.
We got such great feedback on our HelloTalk video. Thank you guys! It’s great to hear your stories about making language exchange partners and how it has benefited your language learning.
