Q: Is Boomalang free?
Yes, Boomalang is free for the rest of 2016. In 2017, we will begin charging a small fee for access to the high-quality community.
Q: What if I want to learn a language other than Spanish or English?
We’re eager to add other languages in the future. Add your name to the newsletter and we’ll let you know as soon as we launch other languages.
Q: I’m a complete beginner. Is Boomalang right for me?
To get the most out of our experience, ideally you have at least basic familiarity (i.e. Novice Mid sublevel) with your second language. Our true superpower is helping transform your basic language into something you can actually use when traveling, studying, working, etc. The earlier you start speaking, though, the better.
Q: Rather than video chats, can I just send text messages to my Boomalang conversation partners?
Nope, we didn't include the option. You’re here to improve your speaking and listening skills. Fact: Texting doesn’t make you a more comfortable speaker.
Q: What are the advantages of speaking live?
There’s no substitute for interacting with living, breathing humans who grew up speaking the language you want to learn. Real conversation engages your brain on many different levels, which has measurable impact on your ability to retain what you’ve learned. This makes your Boomalang experience authentic, interesting and of course, way more fun. It’s a great way to prepare for international travel, or to help you succeed on school exams or professional proficiency tests like the FCE, TOEFL and IETLS.
