Our Mission

We strive to give students the gift of passion for a life long love of learning languages. Our mission is to empower and increase students’ confidence by guiding them from language practice to real world conversations with native speakers. We have heard too many times: "I took two semesters of language in college, but I can't actually speak the language." LinguaMeeting provides a true solution for integrating the conversational component in the language curriculum. We are a team of passionate language learners and profesionals who enjoy connecting students to a world of languages and cultures outside of the classroom.
