As advised by seniors Almute ,MSR and Andy, a very good practice to train CI is to work with a Tandem partner. As it goes, I myself have the same feeling. Thank to the encouragement of dear seniors mentioned above and others, I post this question here.
My language combination is: A: Chinese, B: English; and for my possibly ideal partner: A: English, B: Chinese.
It's not easy to find the very language pair. So, if any friend, whose A is German, French, and others, while hold English as B, and wish to cultive Chinese is also fine for me to work with.
If there is any website offering such service as to find such partner, or any friend is interested, please kindly reply to me. Thanks in advance. :)
I will put your name and mail address on the German Tandem list for the time being - there are also colleagues without German on this list.
AIIC International is looking into the matter and might want to post it on the international website as well. We will let you know more once we know.
Anyone interested in finding a Tandem Partner (or more partners) for any language combination may feel free to contact me under my mail address and I will put down their name, language combination and mail address on the list and send them the updated version of the Tandem List. Maybe this way it will be possible for you, Paris, and for other colleagues with less common language combinations to find Tandem partners as well.
For further information on what Tandem is and how to work as a Tandem team, please refer to:
(List soon to be updated and translated into English)
...as far as I know, there's no such site or dedicated service yet, other than what we were told in Berlin in connection with a German association... but we were also told that an aiic member in that region was looking into the possibility of setting something up along those lines, aiic wide... I'll ask them to kindly reply to your question :-).

I can't help with finding a site, but my A is English and my C is Mandarin. (French and German are in there too somewhere)
