Interpals is a great website. If you visit it, don’t stop at the first look. It could be oldfashioned and not responsive but it is in a place where lot of people is looking for.
It is not a social network like facebook or Google +, it is not a dating site, it is not a blog place or a chat tool. Actually it is a little bit of all that.
But the fist target of Interpals is learning language. This is a place where you can find people who speak Italian, french of russian. If you are learning a language the best way is to practice. This is the place to find friends from all over the world.
I have been there and find it awesome. You can make new friends from all over the world.
Most of the friendship (or more) are temporary. That means that you talk with someone one day, one week, one month or even few month but most of them died.
Scam are also present. Of course you recognise them quite easily.
But the most frustrating things I experienced is the fact to be blocked. Intercultural communication is naturaly not easy and misunderstandings are on the way. You expect misunderstanding. But that could be lead to the fact that you could be blocked.
Been blocked is been rejected. I don’t want to talk with you. It could hurt a lot.
To avoid that, I decided today to delete my account.
