Palabea.net : Speaking World Social Languages with Videolectures, Podcasts, Images, Docs

Learning a new language just became fun, easy and free.
palabea.net is an e-learning platform and social community that presents new opportunities to learn and practice foreign languages. It offers a wide range of tools and technologies to support its users with their learning process and allows people from different countries to communicate and collaborate while practicing languages and to learn about their different cultures. Globalization brought the need to learn and respect cultural diversity. To obtain a dialogue between people of different countries, the knowledge of languages is essential, as it is part of a countries culture and traditions. Some of the major obstacles to learn a foreign language are lack of motivation, time and high costs. With palabea, anyone can explore new possibilities to learn a foreign language and communicate with people around the world, without leaving their home.


palabea.net users are able to:
● Access a portal of contents (video lessons, podcast and multimedia educational material),
information on language schools, au pair opportunities and traveling abroad. With more
information to be added as the portal grows.
● Converse in another language online: palabea users can easily find friends who share their
interests, and who will help them learn and practice their language. They can talk freely on
different themes, but if they prefer they can use lessons or situation games offered
exclusively for the site. palabea, unlike other social networks, offers an integrated video-chat system that lives in
the page and doesn't require users to download an extra application.

podcasts in other languages or watch video lessons, which help explain grammatical
aspects of the language.

a language teacher.
