I decided to start studying Esperanto beacuse the idea of travelling to other countries and understanding a bit of the culture through Esperanto speakers appealed to me a lot, as at the moment I have limited language skills (apart from English, French is the only language I've studied to any level and I'm faaaar from fluent) but I'm interested in travel and eventually studying more languages. Also partly because of the chance of pen pals in different countries, which would be interesting too. But I'm at no level yet (exams at the moment, going to focus once they're finished!).
Anyway I'm planning on studying Scandinavia at university so getting to know a bit more about it from an actual Scandinavian person would be useful!However I feel a little resentful having to correspond in English with someone whose language I haven't mastered yet (it almost seems rude), and Esperanto seems like a good bridge.
Passporta Servo seems like a great idea, but I was wondering if anyone had used it and how well they'd got on. So if anyone would like to share their experiences I'd be more than grateful!
Also I'd like to know if in the directory you can see things like whether the hosts are a family or alone, and their ages and things like that. Anything really
