My favorite topics

Anything can be a topic to talk , will pick up some interest from the conversation if it would be started . I would like to know what I don’t know , and maybe I can tell what you don’t know .

My language exchange partner is

Hmmm anybody , if I feel comfortable to talk . I don’t have no idea because I don’t know yet here which kinds of people I will talk.

Speaking is the fastest way to fluency

Practice listening, improve your pronunciation, and learn to speak a foreign language with native speakers – no matter where you are.

"One of the reasons I’ve struggled to stay engaged in practicing languages is a lack of being able to talk to native speakers, so this app is a lifesaver."
