A few points:

  1. “Language exchange” usually refers to a free, equal (50/50) exchange of languages, for example 15 minutes Japanese/15 minutes English, between native speakers of those languages. The definition is very flexible, but the key word is free. Steve seems to be talking about what I believe most would call “hiring and conversing with a tutor” for much of this video.
  2. I don’t doubt that Steve finds online conversation more stressful than in person, but I don’t, which shows you this is a personal thing.
