Busy language learning

I was thinking today about one of my future goals which is to become fluent in French and Chinese. In both languages I have a basic understanding, in French I can read whereas in Chinese I have a bigger spoken vocabulary.

However, I would need a daily practice of speaking. So I have been thinking about tandem partners and the like, but it’s not really possible for me to meet someone regularly enough right now nor can I attend classes.

So, ChinesePod and FrenchPod are great alternatives for vocabulary and listening. But what about tandem-practice? Being a technophile I naturally think about technical solutions to solve this. So, why not hook up a website/facebook widget that would connect with Rebtel so that you could meet a language partner and then speak with them for 10-15 minutes each day?
