The vast majority of the language exchange websites are free, though a couple have deluxe options you can pay for along with standard free membership.

As a testament to how well-recognized the dual purpose of language exchanges is in Korea, The EV Boyz, an expat boyband here, made a popular music video about the topic: “I’ll be the subject to your predicate,” sings the song’s protagonist about the fictional Korean girlfriend named “A-E.” In the ditty we learn that A-E has to be home at 10 p.m., and the protagonist never meets her family because “Daddy doesn’t like wheyguks." ("Wheyguk" is Korean for foreigner.) That last lyric alludes to some Korean male’s resentment of romance between foreign men and Korean women.

Many profiles state that in addition to language exchanges, the site members are looking for friendship or culture exchanges.

A few of the sites even have an outright “interested in dating” option, blurring the lines between a dating and language-exchange website.A complete dearth of linguistic ability on the one hand (typical of foreign students) matched with usual proficiency on the other (typical of Korean students) constitutes a dynamic not so conducive to learning, they say.Patrick Brown, another English teacher in Seoul, said that none of his language exchanges have significantly improved his Korean and at one point he “got the distinct impression” a certain partner wanted to date. She’d lived in the States for a couple of years, she didn’t need to learn anything,” he said.“I just typically want to learn Korean from Korean girls because they’re prettier," Woods said."Not that I’m sexist, it’s just that I’m a guy.” He suggested the relationships that develop out of language exchanges usually do so in mostly an organic way.
