The new busuutalk is here!

We have re-launched busuutalk – and it’s now better than ever before!

Following your suggestions and feedback, we are happy to announce that busuu.com has launched a brand new version of busuutalk. Our new busuutalk  not only looks nicer, but it is also packed with loads of new features and functionalities.

New busuutalk

  Here are the key improvements:

  1. An “Away” status, so your friends can still send you busuutalk requests when you have to pop away from your computer for a little while.
  2. Additional unit vocab and phrases, adapted to your level (A1 & A2) will help you to better engage in conversations by introducing you to new words and sentences, and helping you to use them in context.
  3. A list of useful phrases displayed in the busuutalk chat window will give you ideas for new words and sentences and guide you on how to use them.
  4. The busuu dictionary will help you find vocabulary you have seen in the busuu learning units and give you their translation, so you don’t have to worry if you can’t remember something.
  5. Special character keyboards for all 12 languages and a whole range of cool emoticons that will make your conversations even more fun!
  6. New improved sound and video quality
  7. … and that’s not all! You can also now save your conversation, print it out and review the vocabulary at the end of your chat.

As usual, you can choose to start busuutalk  from either your home page or from within a unit. Once you have selected a chat partner, a pop-up window will appear and you will be connected. Within the chat window, you can take advantage of all new functions and start improving your language skills with our community of native speakers. Our Premium MembersPremium Member can enjoy busuutalk and all of its new features absolutely free! Not a Premium MemberPremium Member yet? Don’t worry, you can still use busuutalk for just 10 busuu-berries per conversation, or upgrade now!

    I like very much english language. I’d like to speak with a woman or an English man trying to learn it. I’m Lia and I was born in North Italy in 1958, but I feel me like a girl (not always??!!!…Ohh…..)
    I like reading, going to the cinema, listening music. I prefer Tina Turner, Michaekl Jackson, Barbara Streisand…….but there are many good Italian singers like Tiziano Ferro, Laura Pausini, Emma, Massimo Ranieri, Cristicchi and many many others, the composer Giovanni Allevi, the ballet-dancer Roberto Bolle……etc etc….
    I hope that someone wants to write me and correct my mistakes.
    Thank you very much. Lia

    WELL , i seee that it’s new improvmence for this cite , but to say true ,I don’t think it’s a good Idea , when me and my friends come to busuu.com , the first thing we like is the possibilty to talk with new people from diffrent countries and me made alor of friends there without forgeting the new languages that we could learn , but now it’s a little bit hard to use Busuu talk , and maybe you can see that people are using this site less or maybe they stop using it, any way this is just my view , i with the best for the site , thanks for busuu.com | the language learning community

    Please bring the old Busuutalk back or fix the new chat!! Between 2010 and 2012 I was able to learn German using Busuu. Honestly, I could NOT do it again with the new Busuutalk. The old Busuutalk allowed me to connect with and talk to German speaking people. In 2012 the chat changed and my ability to practice was IMMENSELY hindered. Here’s why:

    ~In the old Busuutalk, you could open many chat windows. In the new one, you cannot.
    ~The old Busuutalk was MUCH more reliable. I hear constant reports that the new Busuutalk doesn’t work at all!
    ~In the old Busuutalk, you could hear when a response was made. In the new one, it’s silent and people minimize the window forget that they are chatting!
    ~In the old Busuutalk, the chat stayed open after the person you chat with leaves. In the new one, the window closes itself and the whole conversation is deleted!
    ~In the old Busuutalk, people were notified of a chat every time I write them something in the chat window. In the new chat, I’m not allowed to even write unless the other person accepts the chat. This discourages people from accepting the chat and makes it hard to find them if they accidentally leave the chat.

    Please bring the old Busuutalk back or fix the problems I mentioned above. Your service is much appreciated. Thanks.

    Classic case of if it isn’t broken don’t fix it. It will be great once you fix it. But right now, half the time when I correct other peoples writing exercises the correction disappears. I have yet to get through one speaking exercise without it not recording some part of it or freezing. Worst part now I can’t get through the exercises and do the tests at the end of each section. Please bring the original back until you get the bugs out of the new system.

    Thank you,
