Update: busuu.com collaborates with NGO in Cameroon

As you probably already know, in September 2009 we won the European Language Label for innovative projects in language learning.

The award was compensated with 1,500 EUR, which we donated to the Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child. The money was used to construct a classroom for underprivileged children.

The work has now been finished, and we are very proud that we could make our small contribution.

Christmas is the perfect time to help others, so if you are also interested in supporting the impressive work done by CAPEC, you can find more information here. You can collaborate in several ways like sponsoring a child for a school year, financing summer programs for the orphans, or even volunteering in their school as a teacher.

We already wish all of you, the team of CAPEC and the little children from their school a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

busuu.com has a new home!


After having had the typical start-up office atmosphere (meaning having no office at all) for several weeks, we have now decided to finally “settle down”.

We have found a wonderful office location next to Madrid’s famous Retiro park, which is kind of the green lung of the city.

So there is nothing more to refrain us from nice rollerblade action in the park after a day of heavy coding! :-)

We have finally founded our company!

Tataaaaaaaaaa….YES, it took the Spanish bureaucracy only 4 weeks to finally let us found our company! :-) And we only had to re-write the foundation contract two times as BUSUU is apparently not so easy to write correctly! ;-)

But anyway…now this important step is done and there is nothing more to hold us back in order to conquer the world of language learning!

Welcome to the busuu.com blog!

Today is a very exciting moment for our company – after being busy the over past months working hard on our site www.busuu.com, we have finally launched our blog!

Within this blog, we will try to keep you updated on several issues, from improvements to our website (which will be soon online in a closed beta mode! ;-) to simply some personal stuff which moves our minds…so let’s stay tuned and see what the upcoming months will bring! ;-)
