Just nice, helping, keeps the conversation going, but be themselves the whole time.

My learning goals

Fluency. I don’t mind making a friend, but I want to speak your language so you can be more comfortable.

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."
