Even if you don't consider yourself to be a teacher you can help people from all over the world improve their language skills, regardless of your mother tongue.

Language Exchange: Skype is becoming more and more common as a language exchange tool. If you want Skype English conversation practice you need not look further than online forums and Skype communities to find native English speakers who want to practice your language. Obviously, the more in demand your language is the easier it will be to find language exchange partners.

The Right Partner: Even though there may be lots of people who want to practice speaking English with you it may take some time to find the right person. It is important that your language exchange partner is interested in helping you improve, can offer advice for improvement and is available at times that are convenient for you. Personality and having things in common are also a factor when looking for a Skype English conversation partner.

Speaking Time: It is also important that the time spent practicing English is shared with the time spent practicing your language. Remember this is a language exchange partner not a free English teacher. In general materials should not be necessary for conversation practice but it may useful to have some topics and questions prepared. If you genuinely like the person you are speaking with it should be easy to think of interesting topics to talk about.
