Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I don't know yet. I'm new here. I have to see how things work and then I'll decide.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Unfortunately one experience only and a bad one. A guy speaking fluent Dutch but pretending to be from Canada asked to stay. He locked himself into his room with some pot and the tv and only came out to eat. We had to ask him to leave. I think he'd still be here, otherwise.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living.

Teach, Learn, Share

A while ago I set up a site and a forum for Syrian students of English literature to help them improve their practical language skills. It's meant for Syrians because I know of bit of the problems they face, but it is open for everyone.
