It makes it the ideal tool for you to practice or learn the foreign language of your choice with a conversation partner or teacher located at the other end of the World, in China, the US, Argentina, anywhere!


Free Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls.
To anywhere in the world.
And at any time, day or night, morning or weekends.


Free calling

You have downloaded Skype, and so has your conversation partner, teacher or student. Now you can get started on the really cool stuff - such as making completely free and great quality calls from your computer. That is the great thing about Skype, you can use your internet connection and turn your computer into an internet phone and make free Skype-to-Skype calls.

You and your friend will need to have a headset (or use your computer's built-in microphone and speakers) to talk to each other. You can really improve the sound quality of your calls with a headset, or take your calls to the next level with free video calls.

You can also use Skype to make terrific value calls to phones and mobiles.

Making free calls on Skype

It is really easy to call a friend from Skype. Locate the person you want to call in your contact list and click their name. To call your friend for nothing, simply click the green button. This will start the call and you can talk for as long as you want, whenever you want.

Learning Chinese language online was surprisingly efficient! I am still a beginner but what I learnt made my trip to China so much more enjoyable...

It is so good to have a real language teacher on the other side of the webcam; I tried all these free interactive programs but you really need someone to

I can practice my English with my conversation partner here. I still take my English class in Japan, but I get extra hours on Lingworld and much cheaper.
