Palabea is an online language learning service. Yes another one. No I have no idea why there are so many. Yes, it’s German. No I don’t know what the name means. Well, possibly it could be an excuse to find cute partners in exotic countries, or even get a Green Card, but I can’t tell from here. Yes, the site is very well designed, and has some heavyweight partners like the BBC and Deutsche Welle.
OK, well since you asked – it has video chat, online and offline learning opportunities, language school listings, and virtual classrooms for polishing up the written and grammar part of the equation. Conclusion? It’s a very well featured site with lots to do and enjoy in the course of your linguistic leap for freedom. Oh and it’s beta and free.
As an international community, palabea connects people who share the same interests in learning languages and in discovering different cultures. People from all over the world can communicate via audio chat, video chat and text messages to practice foreign languages, to support others and of course to develop friendships around the world.
