What does a Buddy do?

As a Buddy, you’re simply having daily English conversations. We give you all the support, training and content you need, including 1000’s of topics and questions to keep your conversations stimulating. The students simply want to practice English with native English speakers because they need to pass their English speaking exam if they want to study abroad in the future.

How does it work

How does it work?

As a buddy, you simply need to register and enter the days and times you’re available to students. Due to timezones, you may be having sessions early in the morning or late at night. Most of our students come from China & Asia, so bear this in mind when you enter the times. Each session is for 30 minutes and students may choose the same buddy more than once per week or have different buddies.
