Everyone has a story to tell. Everyone is unique. Everyone wants to love and be loved. Everyone who wants to learn is willing to teach. As the Internet continues to grow, the world is becoming a much smaller place to pursue your true personal and professional interests.
Our aim is to make language education engaging, fun and motivating by scaling a disruptive model for language education and cultural exchange. We are combining social networking, crowd-sourcing, Voice and Video over IP, content and matching technology to allow anyone, anywhere at any time to teach, learn and practice languages and exchange cultures – for free!
