100

We reached 100,000 fans of busuu.com on Facebook!

Our community is not only growing rapidly on busuu.com but also on our Facebook page. Last weekend we reached 100,000 fans and as a ‘thank you‘, we prepared a special surprise for our Facebook fans.

Do you want to know more? Become a fan yourself and check out the last posts on our wall to take advantage of this special surprise until the 7th of August 2011!

Being a busuu.com fan, you will learn how to say “Have a nice holiday” or other expressions in many different languages. You can also tell us what you know about the culture of the language that you are learning. Of course, you can apply your busuu.com vocabulary and participate in our language quizzes, where you will have to name for example five animals in Spanish or five pieces of clothing in French.

Or just take it easy and contemplate how busuu-berries taste like. Here our favourites of the most creative answers:

  • They taste like the feeling we get when we take them after a lesson! It is just the best taste! :) :)
  • It’s a universal berry. It tastes like whatever you want!
  • Like blackberry but more tasty

Don’t forget to add our “I love busuu” badge to your Facebook profile badge to show everybody just how much you love busuu.com :) Just click on the link below to access it.

busuu.com now has 3,000,000 users!

Time to celebrate, the busuu.com online community now has more than 3,000,000 users from all over the world!

We have grown rapidly, with over 1,000,000 new users in just 4 months. That is equal to 10,000 new users every day, who all want to teach and learn languages on busuu.com!

In fact, our online language community is now almost as large as the population of Madrid (where our head office is based). Imagine the whole city writing and correcting exercises on busuu.com!

Since we started in May 2008, you and the rest of our online community have:

  • earned more than 770 million busuu-berries
  • written or recorded more than 8 million exercises
  • made more than 18 million corrections
  • completed more than 50 million learning unit parts

Assuming that each learning unit part takes around 10 minutes to do, we have already provided over 950 years of language learning. In other words, we covered almost a millennium of language training in just 3 years!

Once again, thank you for your participation and support. We are thrilled to have such a strong community and look forward to continue growing with you.
