I'm not sure if this has been done before.

Would anyone be interested in a language-themed swap?

I haven't really thought it through, but maybe people could swap items related to a language that is not English (or whatever their partners first language is), or maybe it could just be a language appreciation swap where anything goes (I know a lot of people who are really passionate about English).

The more I think about it the more possibilities come to mind ^.^

I remember watching a swap (didn't get up the nerve to join)
awhile back:
Language Learner Swap

I was in this one, a few years after that one. It was fun!

I could be up for another but not right now, unfortunately. It's a great idea, though!

Glad you posted -- I thought there was another language swap, but
I could not quite remember....

Good to see that it's been done before. Looks like a lot of cool stuff was made for those two.

my sister and i made up a written language that no one else knew. we had a spoken but we only had a couple words for spoken, for written we have the whole alphabet. i taught 2 people it in college, and in high school me and my friends used it to pass notes and not get busted lol. i am in 5 swaps atm and sent all but one.  not sure if my written "language" would work for this or not, but when people have seen it they said it looked like a mix between english, alien, and egyptian looking although none of the symbols are the same for any lol. some have letters that are upside down though i think it is only J.
