Verbling lets language learners video chat with native speakers. We’ve built a platform that uses P2P video technology to link up people worldwide so that they can learn from each other. For example, an American learning Spanish might be matched in a video chat with a Spaniard learning English inside the web browser. They practice Spanish first and then switch to English when prompted.

In contrast to how existing language communities work, our users don’t waste time browsing each other’s profiles or scheduling times that work for both of them. Instead, they’re instantly connected with a native speaker of the language they’re learning. They also never have to download anything to their computers. Verbling happens in the browser.

As language learners and teachers ourselves, we found that the biggest barrier to reaching fluency was the lack of opportunity to practice with native speakers. We Verblings are working to solve that problem.
