WeSpeke: telecollaboration opportunities

WeSpeke: telecollaboration opportunities | TELT |

We are delighted to announce that WeSpeke has been very favorably reviewed by The Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO).  To reference the review please go to the CALICO site at:
In addition, to address the needs of our user community, WeSpeke is now offering a freeconcierge matching service for teachers.  If you have ever thought; “I teach _____ and would like to connect my students with native _____ speakers.”, then this service is for you.  We will personally introduce you to your foreign counterpart at a university or school where a relationship already exists through international education, study abroad or an exchange program.  This service is intended to give you a free resource to connect your students with their peers in the target language to practice your instruction.  If you are interested in the WeSpeke concierge matching service please reply via email here.  Please indicate if you have a university or school preference.
Together we’ll make language and cultural education a priority and give language learners the very best resources available to become fluent, improve their cultural understanding and perhaps develop lifelong international friendships.
WeSpeke is now available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese.  If you know of any colleagues who might be interested in using WeSpeke in or around their teaching, why not forward them this email, or send them a link to our new video?  A free Teachers Resource Guide is available here.

Best regards, un saludo, à bientôt, mit besten Grüßen, saluti, saudações,

Founder & CEO, WeSpeke
