About

What is Bilingua?

Designed to be your companion as you enhance and enrich your language skills through conversation exchange. Bilingua connects you with native speakers to help you practise a foreign language online and speak with confidence. Through engaging language exchange and one on one tutoring with certified teachers, Bilingua is your fast track to fluency!

Why Language Exchange? And Why Bilingua?

We all know the key to fluency is practising with native speakers, without it you’ll struggle to develop your skills and understanding of connected speech, native dialects, slang and idioms. To be able to communicate in your target language the way it’s spoken in the real world, you need to interact with native speakers. This can be a challenge; natives can be hard to find unless you can travel to a native country and be very expensive if you hire a tutor locally. That’s why we created Bilingua.

Connect with native speakers
Connect with native speakers

Using Bilingua, you can easily meet people to practise languages through conversation exchange; a method of practice involving two people teaching each other their own native tongue. For example, Alicia is learning Spanish, she uses Bilingua to meet Pedro who wants to learn English. They chat together in both Spanish and English, teaching each other expressions, slang and colloquial phrases they use in real life, not just what you’d find in a text book!

Bilingua Tutorship

If you think language exchange is not enough for you, or you need that bit of specialist help from a professional, Bilingua can also connect you directly with a certified language teacher in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Portuguese and Arabic (more languages to come in the future). For a fraction of the cost of traditional language tutors, Bilingua teachers present the most cost effective way to access professional one-to-one language tutoring.

Risks and challenges

Since our beta launch in February, we have been analyzing risks and challenges to our language exchange and tutorship platform. Our biggest challenge is acquiring a large and diverse user base that is passionate about language learning. We need to acquire users from every part of the world in order for our users to be able to successfully find language partners in every language. The more users we have from around the world, the more options users have, in terms of native language speakers.

Throughout the past few months, we have been creative in acquiring new users, but of course this cannot be done without your help. If you can help us spread the word about Bilingua to your peers, we could not ask for more. In addition, with your contributions from this campaign, we will continue to come up with ways to improve Bilingua, so that our users around the globe can continue to benefit from productive language exchanges.
