Language Practice and Cultural Exchange

 An International Platform

From Paris to Berlin, from Pretoria to Dakar, from Beijing to Dubai, from Buenos Aires to Washington, from Martinique to Saint Lucia, from Sydney to Honolulu, Linguapassion crosses your borders and invite to join our group to practice a foreign language, exchange with others from different cultures. 

Learning a foreign language has become a necessity.  As we increasingly travel and the world is becoming smaller and with the market globalisation we have to learn to face up to intercultural communication.

At Linguapassion we want to inspire you to practice foreign languages and give you the opportunity to learn about others' culture.

Whether you are a professional, travelling, a student or planning other intercultural relations, Linguapassion offers online foreign language practice to encourage you to participate in group discussions hence increase your vocabulary and knowledge of foreign expressions.

Because we believe in positive group dynamics, we promote new contacts and cultural exchange in a respectful environment.


These exchanges are run by a native facilitator for conversations and Consultants from the itim centre for the WEBINARS on intercultural management.  They are not only experienced in monitoring group discussions but also in working within a culturally diversed environment.
