Each video conversation lasts 30 minutes – 15 minutes in the native language of one speaker; 15 minutes in the native language of the other. The conversation is guided by images, questions and key words to give speakers the confidence to start and hold a conversation, develop their vocabulary and broaden their cultural knowledge in the language of their correspondent. Speakers have the opportunity to choose from thousands of different topics for discussion, from News and Sport, to Culture and Celebrities.
Additional digital tools include:
- a “Notebook” – words and phrases from each conversation can be saved to the user’s “Notebook” for review at a later date
- an integrated translator – to improve the flow of the conversation
- an integrated text messaging service – to facilitate the learning of new words
- an evaluation and ratings form – to ensure quality conversations and experiences
- a progress tracker – to enable speakers to view their progress
- a functionality to pre-schedule conversations through sending conversation requests
