FAQ

Yenga is about getting fluent speaking languages. We connect users from all around the world to practice languages on the go. Living, learning and having fun together.

language exchange is people who agree to get together to practice each other’s languages. You find someone who speaks the language that you’re learning, and who’s learning the language that you speak. And you give each other feedback.

Two ways:

1st: Every X minutes all the participants change the language they are practicing. Example: 2 Spanish learners and 2 English learners, every 10 minutes they change from all speaking Spanish to all speaking English and vice-versa.

2nd: All the participants hold a conversation speaking the language they want to practice. 

Example: 2 Spanish learners speak Spanish and 2 English learners speak English.
