This group is here to help people from all over the world to meet in Los Angeles, to practice speaking languages, and to enjoy a cultural exchange and experience that goes beyond just sharing a couch. So if you would like to practice speaking Italian, post a request asking for Italian speakers and say what languages you can offer in return. If you would like to teach some Lunfardo, go ahead and post it and see who would like to join you.
We are looking for a good place and time to hold group meetings to make this language exchange even more fun!
Note: The credit goes to Alessio Carone from the Barcelona LEM group for inspiring me to bring this concept home with me to the CouchSurfers of L.A.

Maria SchupetI am from Germany and have had great experiences with similar language exchange groups. I enjoy sharing my culture and language with people who are willing to share theirs. It helps me understand others - and myself - much better and is so enrichting.
