  1. Hi Trellum! Great to see you're interested in the service! LanguagePear is all about facilitating focused and directed conversations so that every exchange is engaging. We're moving away from the 'social network with a language barrier' model that most exchange services use, and instead pair users up for discussion based on things they really care about. The feedback has been really great so far and I'm very excited for the future of the service! Be sure to sign-up and spread the word!
  2. Trellum, you raise some really great points about the problems with current language exchange services. I agree that a huge problem with current services is that conversations lack direction, it's often hard to get past all the 'social' back and forth and onto useful conversations that develop your language skills. You're often left scrambling looking for things in common to talk about. I really believe there is value in online language exchange, but I don't think the current services have cracked it. So, I'm building my own! Check out http://www.languagepear.com, and let me know your thoughts!
  3. Thank you! You can also sign up directly to be notified as and when we launch: http://www.languagepear.com
  4. Hey guys/gals! I've been developing a language practice platform and I'd really appreciate your feedback. I have had some very positive results so far and I would be extremely grateful if you could take a few minutes to let me know your thoughts on the concept. Below is a link to the Google form that I am using to collect feedback (with a link to the website in development). http://goo.gl/forms/fTBfW0XetP Thanks so much for your help!
  5. Hi all! I was wondering whether any of you struggle to find the time to practice your target language as much as you would like? I really struggle with this. How do you combat this problem? Any advice would be appreciated!
  6. Hi all! I've been using language learning applications for a while now, sites like Memrise, Duolingo, and WeSpeke. Although these services are certainly valuable for language development, there's no denying that they only work effectively when used in conjunction with traditional language learning techniques. How do you guys feel about learning languages through apps? What issues do you feel are most pressing when it comes to sites like WeSpeke, GoSpeaky, etc.? Look forward to hearing your views!
  7. Hello fellow linguaholics! I want to hear all about your greatest achievements in your language learning journeys! What did you accomplish? How did you get there? Inspire me! Looking forward to hearing from you all!
