Take part in ‘Language of the Month’

Learning a language is about much more than remembering grammar rules and memorising words. It’s about discovering new, exciting cultures and a fresh perspective on the world.

So join us here at busuu.com as we take a look at a different language every month! We’ll journey through each one, focusing on the linguistic differences as well as the cultural ones.

Get social and get involved

How does it work? During a whole month, we’ll dedicate posts across Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to one of the 12 languages we teach on busuu.com. And we want you to get involved!

We’d love to hear about any crazy phrases or curious facts you might have about each Language of the Month. So make sure you join in the fun to discover something new about your favourite language.

Learn a language, jump into the culture

You’ll learn unusual words and phrases, and find out fun things that you won’t hear in the classroom or language classes. We’ll help you fire up your passion for each language, boost your motivation and learn faster – almost without realising it!

We’ll explore the different countries where each Language of the Month is spoken, as well as finding out interesting (and sometimes unusual) facts. You’ll learn language tips and discover new music, food and other cultural aspects.

Spanish – our first Language of the Month

We’re going to kick things off with Spanish, spoken in Spain and throughout Latin America. It has nearly half a billion speakers worldwide and it’s the second most widely used language on Twitter.
