I was just reading through this posting http://www.fluentin3months.com/busuu-livemocha-review/ about the comparison between Busuu.com and Livemocha.com, and in it Benny says that he was going to do a comparison of multiple sites (including those two) for finding conversation partners. Can anyone link me to this post? I'm having some difficulty finding it.

Well, I don't have a link to the post, but I can tell you my experiences. I've only used Livemocha, and while the courses themselves aren't that great, I've been able to find several good conversation partners. If you put up an interesting profile, they might contact you, without you having to do anything.

Haven't gotten around to that yet. I will be listing and comparing some paid lessons sites soon, but definitely need to get to writing the free conversation finder list some time! :)

That's great. Can't wait to see that comparison list. I have been reviewing all the language sites I use in terms of finding conversation partners to see which ones are the best so I am really interested in seeing how all these language learning/exchange sites compare. Keep us posted Benny!
