REIMAGINE LEARNING

Enrich educational experience

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

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

REIMAGINE LEARNING

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.

Unlike every language-learning program out there, Conversations Unbound does not take a comission from the conversation partners. Conversation partners receive 100% of the money they earn from each session.
