Learn English online by practicing with a native speaker who is learning your language. Write or speak English online to improve grammar or conversation.

A language exchange complements other forms of learning such as classroom, cultural immersion and multimedia, because you get to practice all that you have learned with native speakers in a safe and supportive environment.


...one of  "the best ways to learn a foreign language."

- The Wall Street Journal
November 18, 2002

Advantages of language exchange learning include:
  • Learning the real English language (slang, expressions, etc.) used by ordinary native speakers
  • Getting accustomed to the way native speakers speak in real (casual) English conversation
  • Making a friend in the English-speaking culture.
Language exchange learning is also inexpensive because we provide free tips and conversation lesson plans that allow you to do a language exchange on your own.

For more advantages, please see why do a language exchange.
