language exchange site

Can anyone recommend a language-exchange site based on personal experience? I'm at my wit's end trying to find a tutor/language buddy for Hebrew and/or eastern Arabic, but the city I live in isn't exactly the picture of diversity. Something Skype-based would be great, with as much personal interaction as possible. If there are sites geared toward serious language learners, this would also be a plus. Any ideas?

I have no experience with Hebrew or Arabic, but if you haven't heard of it, I've found italki to be a pretty good resource for finding Skype-based language partners or tutors.

Interpals is quite good.

second this. I don't know about the languages you specify, but I've been using Livemocha for Italian and there are interactive exercises you can do with native language speakers.

I recently posted on Conversation Exchange, and got 6 hits back within 24 hours from around the world for email / skype language partnering. It's free, too.
