Mature, proven platform

Since 2010, we’ve worked with more than 500 universities. We understand language programs, and we’ve built our platform and training to help you meet your goals — for one classroom or an entire school.

"Students love TalkAbroad. They even indicate they are pondering study abroad based on their experiences with native speakers. The platform is great, and the service is equally great. We are really happy with this product."

Dr. Bill VanPatten, Michigan State University

"My students just finished their second conversation through TalkAbroad and everybody was very happy! This is an intermediate advanced level class discussing social issues, and comparing them in both Latin America and the US. We are very excited with this program! Support to the program is EXCELLENT!"

Dr. Mireya Vandenheuvel, Hartwick College

"At Virginia Tech, this is my third year using TalkAbroad in a course called Spanish for Oral Proficiency. TalkAbroad is growing, not just in numbers of US student users and native speaking conversation partners, but also in sophistication and attention to detail. The staff at TalkAbroad is efficient, professional, and personable."

Dr. Libby Calvera, Virginia Tech University
