Learning a language can be challenging, making mistakes is part and parcel of the learning curve - but busuu has got a solution for this...
With our improved Practice tab on the website, it makes it easier to see exercises need to be corrected from users learning your native language, and to see which of your busuu friends need help! We’ve also improved our writing exercises - getting feedback from native speakers has never been easier - you can submit your writing exercises to be corrected by our community of 70 million+ users worldwide or you can choose specific friends on busuu to help you.
Whether you want to help others or help friends, you’ll see a list of exercises submitted in your native language by members of the busuu community. You have the option to improve the text they’ve written, give them a star rating and also leave some constructive criticism or additional comments about their work to help them improve and develop their language skills.
