Looking to practice your Arabic and support refugees and displaced people? NaTakallam​ is a ​social venture that connects ​displaced persons (primarily Syrian and Iraqi)​ with Arabic learners worldwide for language practice over Skype. The platform caters to students in need of affordable and flexible Arabic practice and direct access to native speakers on the one hand, while providing displaced Syrians with a source of income, marketable skills, and enriching work opportunity on the other – in an effort to combat the workforce restrictions and language barriers many refugees face in their host country. To catch a glimpse of NaTakallam in action, please feel free to check out this ​quick video report in France24.​ More recently, NaTakallam is beginning to provide translation and interpretation services for both individual and company needs.

To date, some 60 displaced persons and over 1200 individuals in more than 60 countries have engaged in more than 13,000 hours of NaTakallam sessions, through individual purchases or university partnerships and programming. Since starting in August 2015, displaced people have self-generated over $120,000 through their work with NaTakallam.
