    Again, there are many practical problems with this, such as how the chat roon would be monitored. Sites are responsible for what happens in chat rooms, which is why many places are switching them off because monitoring them 24 hours a day is either impossible or prohibitively expensive. The legal aspects are becoming more and more important.

    In my opinion, it is very useful to creat a chat room. When we chat we are compelled to give quick answers and this is the best way to focus on this foreign language, English language.

    hi,
    sorry, i don't agree with those who don't support the idea of having a chat room. i think chating in English gives you an opportunity to practice English in reality. i strongly support the idea of creating English chat room
    regards

    Ask me about it!

    I tried an educational English chat rooms before. And they suck
    You seem to have leanred English slang quite well.

    As Tdol noted, the chatroom was little-used, and that sort of thing is difficult to monitor.

    Agreed, and the fact that we can't monitor it is the exact reason that we will not be adding a chat room to this site.

    It is your safety (as users) that we would be putting at risk if we started a chat room that we could not maintain properly, and we refuse to put our users at risk in this way.
