Hi all,
I'm studying Italian just for fun, and I'm using one of those 1-to-1 Skype based online platforms (the one I use is called Lingostan, https://www.lingostan.com) where you can meet natives and exchange (you talk in Spanish e. g., and they talk in Italian); I've noticed that, apart from a good source of slang and colloquial language, is a great way to get idioms, especially the new ones, and to discover localizations.

Have you ever had a similar experience with these platforms?
