Firstly, this is a forum for English speakers, so we are not your target audience, and secondly, your English leaves something to be desired. Germans like to learn things perfectly.

Of course the OP didn't break any guidelines. Surely it is better that the OP knows this isn't likely to be a very fruitful hunting ground? He would be much better off in a German speaking forum and with B2 is easily able to post.

 

As to his English, also better to have some warning that at that level, a partner would probably want good grammar and sentence construction. No doubt this is well within his grasp, but if your ad doesn't display your wares to their best advantage, this is not a good thing.

@kipletteCould you please help me in my grammar of my sentences? I will be happy to learn it from you.

 

I wrote this advert as soon as I got from my work. I didn't think much. This forum doesn't allow you to correct your sentences after 20 minutes of the post. Could you see, I corrected my sentences after I post the original draft ?

 

Do not take life to seriously. ;-) If you are looking for perfection, I am not looking for you. I have learnt German to a level, all these days only talking with people. Who said, I am looking for only Germans? I am looking for a tandem partner, they do not need to be Germans. Do you know there are many people who like to think in English so they could better use their communication in English language spontaneously?

 

However, your advice is taken.

All is well, then.

 

I thought I explained myself perfectly well - no judgement whatsoever of you, but that the advert was not conducive to many replies, either in its placing, or in its format. 

 

I am an English teacher. Perhaps this is then a sensitive area for me, and if I came over as overly savage, for that I do apologise.

@kiplette

 

At a friendly note:

 

The advice of writing in a German forum from you is taken. Thanks, but the rest matters too, if I had to respond to all that you had quoted.

 

Good to know that you are an English teacher. But I am a Engineer by profession. I used to develop things with the few things I have in my hand. Once the concept is over, then comes the standard! ;-)

 

I am talking about English/German language for survival.

I can't change it again.  TT doesn't allow.  However, I guess I am fluent enough for business level communications too. Talk to me, you will know me. Thanks for your suggestion.

Fluency in Business English would have to include both speaking and writing since it’s a specialized area of English that involves structure and vocabulary used in business. Even native speakers would have to learn or study it. You can just say you are fluent enough to make casual conversation in English. That would work too.
