Enriching educational experience

We individually pair language learners with conversation partners to improve their foreign language skills, engage in rich, cross-cultural dialogue, and think critically about forced displacement.

Anyone, whether those enrolled in a formal course or learning a language for fun, can work with a conversation partner.


Integrate Conversations Unbound into curricula

We partner with universities, high schools, and other educational institutions to integrate our conversation programs into their language and/or regional studies curricula. This is our signature program.



Tailored conversation programs

Choose the type of one-on-one session that is right for you. Educational institutions can integrate any of these formats into their curricula.

1. Language Learning

Practice your grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation in Arabic, Spanish, French, or German. 

2. Conversation Practice

Work on your conversation fluency and comfort speaking freely in Arabic, Spanish, French, or German. 

3. Cultural Exchange

Speak in English about the following topics with our conversation partners: 

Middle Eastern Studies
Latin American Studies
Africana Studies
Francophone Studies
German Studies
Migration and Displacement


Empower forcibly displaced individuals as paid online conversation partners

We work hand-in-hand with forcibly displaced populations to onboard them onto our program and train them on how to be successful conversation partners.


We aim to create opportunities for displaced people to increase their agency and economic opportunities.


Conversation partners receive 100% of their earnings

Unlike every language-learning program out there, Conversations Unbound does not take a comission from the conversation partners. Conversation partners receive all the money they earn from each session.


CU commits to actively working towards a diverse and inclusive future

We are proud to work with language learners, conversation partners, and team members of all different genders, sexual orientations, races, religions, abilities, socioeconomic statuses, geographic locations, and immigration statuses.

Help us continue to encourage cross-cultural dialogue and empower forcibly displaced people.
