I have been trying on language sites like this, to find someone to speak Swedish with, a native speaker or someone that knows swedish to guide me in learning this language.

I REALLY hope, that someone sees reads this so that I may have someone to speak with as I continue on this language journey with Swedish! 

Snälla! Tack.

Im from New York, so Im pretty much open to learning any language. My English isn't broken or slandered, but my Spanish could use some work. I  have an open mind so I am willing to chat about almost anything. 
I enjoy too many things to list, but here's a brief summary:
Reading, outdoors, museums, art, music, science, culture, photography, etc.

User time zones and time stamps on posts here on screen

I wondered how to interpret the timestamp which is shown with the posts, because I was curious about the local time a user had written a post. Todd, our webmaster, explains to me:

"It's by server time in the U.S. eastern time zone, and written in U.S. format (mm/dd/yy)"
Which should currently be EDT= GMT/UTC -4
On my screen I see the format displayed as (DDD, mm/dd/yy - hh:mm), which is just fine.

Learning to speak by reading?

Learning a language actually consists of 4 skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. They are of course closely related, but depending on what you want to do with the language you are learning, you will not need to become perfect in all 4.

Here I am on about speaking more fluently. My method is learning to speak by reading aloud. This advice works for me since years and is my way of keeping several languages alive.
