Dear Dan, dear "My language exchange.com",
I'm just writing to say "THANK YOU" to you, thank you a thousand times for your marvellous website. So far I have only used very little of what you offer but it has helped me so much to improve my French and to find new friends, really interesting and nice people. You warn people not to use their real address and not to meet their pen pals in person and you are right to do so. However, I did risk a bit and have met three of my pen pals in person and they are all great. Thanks to your website I met a Frenchman who is now a good friend of mine, I spent a wonderful week in France with him and his family (this was one of my dreams and it came true)and then he and his family came to Slovakia and now both our families are befriended!
Your website is trustworthy, reliable, incredibly rich and helpful. What a brilliant idea it was!
I am a language teacher and I recommend you to all of my students.
Wishing you all the best,

of course you can reproduce my comments in your Member Testimonials
section! "Lucia Bujnova" is my real name and you can include all of it,
what I have written is what I believe and I want to encourage other
people to sign up because it is definitely worth it. Anonymous letters
are less convincing, I think. If you also want to give a link to my
profile, you can.
By the way, one of those three pen pals that I have already met in
person comes from Canada, which is really far from Slovakia! :) I can
see that you are Canadian, too.
I think that if everybody spoke a few foreign languages and got to know
a few foreigners, learning about their culture, trying to understand or
to a certain extent accept their way of thinking, there would be fewer
international conflicts and maybe fewer wars. Your website not only
helps people learn foreign languages, it also gives them an opportunity
to make friends all over the world, which is very valuable. (You can
reproduce that too if you like. :) )
Well, best of luck to you, Dan, and to your wonderful website!
