About Polyspeaks:

We know that learning a language is fun, exciting, challenging, and at times, embarrassing! When we had the idea for Polyspeaks we weighed the options of text chat versus voice chat. We decided to build a tool focused around text chat because the majority of language learners around the world are at the beginner to intermediate level, and feel more comfortable writing rather than speaking.
