In the past decade, Dublin has seen increasing development in many sectors, remarkably in the Education industry. The country has attracted many English learning seekers, students that come to Dublin to live, learn the language, and the local culture. However, exciting this adventure might seem, foreigners may still struggle to overcome a set of difficulties when learning another language in a different environment.
For this reason, this project will try to develop an app that can help students meet new people with the primary objective to learn and practice English with people nearby. Users will be able to find people surrounding them on the same or a different level in the language, ultimately meeting up with fellow learners to practice English. The app will also provide the user with a group of features, such as chat and even the possibility to share new meetups on social media, showing how engaged they are and how they have been improving.
This app will facilitate learning English around the city. Why talk online when you can make friends and practice English in real life?
Go. Meet. Talk. This is Conversa: the community tool to practice English.
