Shared Talk
Delft Project
The Mixxer

Lang 8
Conversation Exchange
Open Language Exchange

Tandem Exchange
Babel Village
Languages for Exchange

And here is a table so you understand the main differences between them:

Are we connecting students with target language communities, at the core of the ACTFL standards?

It's definitely an unresolved matter.

Thanks Gabriel!

Thank you very much for your "report of findings". I shall, when I find some time, work towards using one or more of them, I thought it might get me out of my present relative isolation in respect of speaking spanish. I first have to buy a microphone and earphones, as during the daytime, I am at work, whereas my home computer does have the mike and speakers, but is located in a cold verandah, so I only quickly scan my mail there and ... get the hell out before I freeze my bum!

Also I have to find out about "Skype" which I am not (really) familiar with. I'm sure most of the students are very well acquainted with the paraphernalia of internet communications which, alas, I am not, so far.


Ni siquiera novillero en toros soy matador, de idiomas.

Have you ever heard about

Have you ever heard about laptops? ;-) You could practice from your bed.

About Skype: you do not need it if you use, probably the best website for practicing oral interaction, even though there is no webcam...


Hola soy la fundadora de palabea, y me encantaría matizar que además de dar clases, en palabea, se puede aprender con video lecciones, con lecciones, con podcast, y sistema de comunicación a través de video conferencia o audio conferencia sin la necesidad de descargar un software. Otra cosa que me gustaría aclarar es que la página ha sido creada por Sebastian Schkudlara, Patricia Sierra y Guido Veth.
Muchas gracias, Un saludo


creo que la plataforma más completa y práctica a la hora de practicar un idioma, por su sencilla interfaz y cantidad de herramientas a tu disposición es palabea. sharedtalk es tambén práctica, pero no tan completa.
a aprender!

Wow, gracias Gabriel! Lo vi

Wow, gracias Gabriel!

El intercambio de idiomas es

El intercambio de idiomas es una excelente manera para ganar confianza en el idioma que aprendes.
Lo hizo un par de veces y los resultados fueron buenos.
El problema para mi es que en la mayoría de los sitios web a donde puedes buscar un compañero, para practicar el nuevo idioma, hay mucha oferta para los idiomas más populares (Inglés, Alemán, Frances etc.)
En mi caso que mi idioma natal es Griego y quiero practicar Español y Portuges, encontrar un compañero es extremadamente difícil
