Q1. How do you match applicants?
A1. Applicants will be matched by a "condition matching" approach - applicants
are matched according to their stated information/conditions (language
interests and abilities, etc.). However, imbalance in the number of
applicants of each registered language may lead to a matching where not
all conditions are perfectly matched.
Q2. I started the language exchange with my partner, but it has become
extremely difficult to continue because of my class workload, etc.
Do I still need to submit a report, even though I've only met my partner
a few times?
A2. Yes. All participants (regardless of how many times they met their partner)
need to submit a report between January 20th and 31st, 2012.
