Summary of the activities
busuu.com is a free online community where native speakers from all over the world can come together, exchange their language knowledge and improve their language skills.
busuu.com aims to inspire people to actively participate in their own personal language learning whilst helping others improve their skills. Users are encouraged to complete picture based learning units focussed on topic areas with phrases and vocabulary represented by images and voices of native speaker. This involves learning new vocabulary, a comprehension dialogue, a writing exercise an online chat about the chosen topic and a review section. All members are free to correct other users' exercises or contact other native speakers to ask about doubts or even start a video conference.
The website can be used completely free of charge and is enjoying strong growth since its launch.
The name "busuu" derives from a little known Cameroonian language called Busuu. This name was chosen in the hope that one day busuu.com will not only be a platform for teaching and
learning all the well-known languages of our world but also for all those less known languages which deserve to be preserved - languages such as Busuu.
