What we're about

We want to help people understand each other, by giving you language & cultural lessons, so that new worlds open up for those who appreciate it!

We will do this using scenario-based dialogue to teach usable language phrases that will help you survive in your target country, covering common grammar features, building vocabulary, and occasionally playing some language games, and watching movies/TV shows.

We'll mainly start with Korean, Chinese, and English, and then we'll expand to other languages from there. So stay tuned!

Anyone who's interested in languages of all levels are welcome!

(PREREQUISITE: Please provide a profile picture that shows your actual face when signing up, for the sake of keeping things honest and true.)
