We found new friends abroad
Big things are afoot at the Babbel language platform these days: Besides reaching the 100,000 user mark, Babbel announced today acquiring the British language community FriendsAbroad.com. This makes Babbel one of the largest players in the online language learning market. To incorporate the huge community of language learners from FriendsAbroad.com, Babbel is integrating new features, like “Writing topics” to write short texts and have them corrected by native speakers from the Babbel community. Meanwhile, the new “Friends” option makes it easier for learning partners and “Tandems” to find one another and stay in touch. For details head over to TechCrunch.
