Hi. Time to talk for real !
We are launching Loqacious, the new Paris based English/French language exchange app.
We found language learners were often struggling when it came to practicing, even in a busy and multicultural city such as Paris. So many native speakers nearby that yet seem so unreachable, don’t they ?
Well, Loqacious was simply created to make real conversation happen with the people around you.
Here is how it works. With geolocalisation, you can see the users nearby, check their native language, their bio and interests and message them to arrange a meeting.
Then, the exchange is entirely up to you and your partner(s). You can, for instance, decide to speak French for 20 minutes and then English for 20 minutes, so all the participants can practice.
If you are an art buff, you might want to meet at an expo and comment on the pieces in two languages. If you are already a busy parisian, you can meet at lunch time with another busy parisian and improve your professional vocabulary over a meal. If you are an English teacher, the app might also be useful for you to reach motivated students…
Anyway, we thought of a lot ways that Loqacious could be useful for you but the best way will obviously be your way. It is an ongoing project and we would love for you to be a part of it. So we are looking for pioneers who won’t be afraid if there are only a few enthusiasts out there in the wilderness with them at the beginning. Soon there will be plenty more exchange partners available !
Plus we’ll be organising some language exchange events ourselves before the summer is out.
