Nowadays, many of my friends are working in the places which is far away from home.So the convient way to keep in touch with them is to use the chating tools such as MSN ,QQ and so on. But now I hope I can have a new experience.As a student ,as a Englisher ,a more direct way to understanding and gaining the knowledge of foreign countries' culture attracts me much. Do you think chating with foreigners is worthy of attempting? Have you ever done it? And what's the mathod or way you used? Thanks!

I have chatted with a person from Belgian before but not in his native tongue, however I have learned a few phrases from him and gained a beautiful song, that well, I can't remember the name of now, but remember what it was about. It's been awhile since i've heard from him and although i've tried to email him I still haven't gotten an answer. In any case, I think that it is a great way to learn a new language, and is also a fun way to make new friends.

i think it's really wonderful to have a foreign friend. i like my foreign techer,he owns different views from ours towards things and i like the culture he brings to us. i haven't got a english-spoken friend yet,but i hope i'll have a few in a year.

chatting to people outside your own race helps you a lot in learning different cultures. you exchange each others cultures and ideas and opinion on things. one more is when you really interact with foreign nationals. you practice your english more and understand more of their country

hello friend,i am glad to meet you on mylot.I think there are a lof of ways we could chat with the foreighers.we can chat with them by msn, icq,skype,etc.they are all famous chatting tools in all over the world.and i think the important point is we should practise our spoken english a lot to enable us to talk fluently with the foreign friends.because whatever in school or in society, we always speak our monther language a lot. so we should make a good effort on this part.lol if you want to chat with me, just add me,happy mylotting. good luck
