Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to find a website where I can go and find a French native speaker with whom I can set up a time to meet with them and e.g. via skype discuss French articles we have both read.

This could be for free or payment (paypal) and those participating do not necessarily have to be language teachers, just native speakers.

Does anyone know of a site like this?

It's a little unorganized, but in the skype forums, there are some request/offers: Learn languages and more –  miku Jul 8 '10 at 10:31

Do you mean something like http://www.verbalplanet.com/?

Linguapassion is a platform that offers online conversation on a virtual platform (not Skype). An opportunity to practice a language but share your culture with others.

The website http://www.livemocha.com/ allows you to interact with others and you can probably find someone through the site to learn from on Skype.

You might find someone here (http://ask.antimoon.com/), it's a StackExchange 1.0 site for language learners.

If you want free you can try http://www.duolingo.com. If you are looking for paid - I have used them for Spanish - you can try http://www.livelingua.com. I recommend trying a free service first to really see if you want to spend the money. Sometimes the romance of learning a language gets lost once you learn that you have trouble conjugating "to be" in present tense. Good luck.
