Change a life forever, speak English with someone online

You just need to talk to someone to help them
English Out There would like your help.

The ability to speak English can improve someone's life chances and those of their children enormously because they can get much better paid jobs.

If you can speak English fluently you can help people to improve their English quickly, just by talking to them.

We are looking for fluent English speakers who can help our students to practise their English online using applications such as Skype.

Every week our students study a lesson, do some exercises and then call English speakers to practise the language from the lesson.

It takes just a few minutes for them to say what they need to say and then you can have an unstructured conversation or ask them how to discuss what they said in English in their first language so that you can learn it (they might be Italian or Chinese for example).

You don't need to prepare before you speak or know what they are going to talk about. Just being your natural self is what will help them the most.

You meet them in a closed and monitored Facebook group initially and you can choose who you talk to and when you talk. They will finish the practice and say 'good bye' and not waste your time.

The topics are interesting and practical, often amusing, but never offensive.

Please help us to help English learners all over the world and make a few new friends at the same time.
