Hi Samii. I live in NYC and DC but I have already finished the three levels of Rocket French. Now, I study with a private tutor to get to a fluent level.
I do still check the forum from time to time in case there are questions I can answer, so feel free to ask.
FWIW, I do find peer practicing a foreign language a slippery slope, except perhaps for practicing pronunciation. If neither is a native speaker, you may untintentionally end up reinforcing bad grammar or structure if it's not corrected.
It's not all bad though. I was able to get around Paris and Brussels just on my Rocket French knowledge for two weeks: asked for directions, navigate the metro in Paris (their system maps are organized differently from subway maps, they highlight location, not train number/letter), place orders, check in and out of the hotel, etc.
