Si quieres conocer a personas online interesadas como tú en aprender y practicar otro idioma (en tu caso inglés) y hablar con ellos a través del ordenador puedes darte de alta en:
http://www.busuu.com/es (va por niveles de conocimiento de inglés)

Otra página que también es interesante para que puedas practicar inglés es:
https://www.babbel.com

Existen otras páginas que aunque cobren, se puede disfrutar de muchos recursos que ofrecen gratis:
https://es.verbling.com/ (se puede asistir a clases gratis sólo como oyente).
http://www.italki.com/ (la idea de esta web es parecida a busuu, sobre todo viene bien para practicar el escrito).
https://www.couchsurfing.org/ (la utiliza mucha gente para alojarse gratis en casas, quedar con gente, etc. pero que puede usarse para también practicar el idioma ya que puedes quedar con angloparlantes que vienen a visitar tu ciudad, les haces un poco de compañía unas horas, le enseñas la ciudad y así practicas tu inglés “gratis”.)
