Welcome to Double Talkers!

Double Talkers is not a language class or a conversation partner group. It's different.
Double Talkers follows the natural path of adult bilingualism.

Did you know you are already bilingual? We build on that.
Bilingualism is a matter of degree. At Double Talkers, we don't teach you languages. We help you expand your bilingualism.

Coaches and participants discuss the similarities and differences between two languages. We compare the two languages and learn alternative ways to say things in each: vocabulary, phrasing, practical country-specific terms, etc. This is why Double Talkers is both beginner-friendly as well as a boost for more advanced learners.

At Double Talkers, everyone is both learner and expert. You can use either language or mix the two languages. Then we fill in the gaps: together. You can ask a question, answer a question, explain, or offer specific examples from where you're from.

Is Double Talkers right for you?
Join Double Talkers if you are flexible and can laugh at your own mistakes. We don't take ourselves too seriously, but we take bilingualism very seriously.

At Double Talkers, it is never too late to learn to communicate better in another language.

Please Note: We are recruiting more volunteer hosts and co-hosts at this time. Co-hosting requires no teaching experience, and you don't have to be fully bilingual in the "other" language. Send us a message to find out more!

Double Talkers is sponsored by Parlay Vacay: English Immersion Weekends (and Online Coaching). Parlay Vacay offers short, in-person holiday style English courses for small groups in great destinations as well as many options to learn English online.
