Partner Up to Learn a New Language at ExchangeALangauge.com - Learn for Free and Make a Friend

Minneapolis, MN, April 12, 2010 --(PR.com)-- ExchangeALanguage.com, a free language exchange community that allows users from all over the world to partner up to learn each others’ languages, launched today. This unique new site, which encourages both in-person and online language exchange, is the premiere locale online for learning new languages.

“This community is going to change the way we learn languages,” said Janelle Klander, founder of Exchange A Language LLC. “Nothing like this has been created before, yet there are people all over the world dying to learn foreign languages but trying only through academic methods. This site will strengthen and partner with those teaching tools to really cement learning.”

Think of ExchangeALanguage.com as Facebook for language learning. By harnessing the power of the internet, combined with the social networking so prevalent today, people can find in-person or online partners who are native speakers of their existing language. ExchangeALanguage.com allows you to quickly and easily connect with someone on the other side of the world and have an online language exchange through chat, messaging, or Skype. Users can expand their horizons and learn languages with partners, and the site also offers access to language schools and software programs.

Ms. Klander noted, “Practicing a language with a native speaker is essential for learning it. Language exchange is growing in popularity because it's effective and more importantly, it's fun! Not only do you get to learn to speak a new language, but you can pick up on how people really speak, including local slang, and their cultural practices.”

The site features an in-person partner finder, so if you are living in, say, NYC and you want to learn Arabic, you can find someone on the site who speaks Arabic, looking to learn English, and you can get together for coffee or a drink to have your language exchange. In addition to allowing people to find each other online and arrange meetings or online sessions, ExchangeALanguage.com can also bring cultures together, creating relationships with people who speak different languages, effectively acting as an ambassador to bridge the gap between cultures, fostering friendships and perhaps even more.

Wayne Duplessis is an Administrator at TEFL International, one of the world's largest and best-known accredited English teacher training programs, which is already partnered with ExchangeALanguage.com. Mr. Duplessis commented, "Language defines our worlds. Any exchange - whether it’s social, educational, or business-related - enriches us. As an educator in a multi-language environment I've seen the power of, and empowerment through, language."

One of the most popular features of the site is the contests, where members of the community can enter to win free software language programs or discounts and free courses at language schools. Ms. Klander cautions that it is best not to rely on either in-person or an academic program but rather include both. “The fastest way to learn a language is to use the combination of the two types of learning.”

Born from a desire to help people all over the world get together to learn each others’ languages, Ms. Klander has been working on developing ExchangeALanguage.com for almost a year. “I’m thrilled to finally see it launch. ExchangeALanguage.com allows you to learn something new and exotic without ever leaving your home city, or even your house.”
