Busuu is an online community in a social network form which allows users to learn new languages and connect with people from all over the world that also want to learn new languages. Some features are free to use, including learning one language, however there are premium features for more advanced levels of language study. The website provides the choice between twelve languages including: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Polish, Turkish, Arabic, Japanese and Chinese.
The website enables you to select which language you already speak and allows the user to connect with people that speak the language they wish to learn. This is a useful feature as users can ask other users to correct their mistakes; therefore learning from native speakers of that particular language. The website comes with quizzes to test the abilities of users and test how much they have learnt from other users online. There is a friend request and a messaging system where users can interact with each other, similarly to a social media website. This is a positive example of an online community which users can benefit from, as learning a new language can always be useful. However, this website could improve by adding a wider range of language to select from as only 12 languages are included. I believe the website could expand the number of users by adding more language choices that are not included such as Romanian, Korean, Hungarian and a lot more.
