Give your students engaging, immersive language practice and cultural exchange.

NaTakallam partners with universities to bring real-life conversations, language learning, and cultural exchange to the classroom. Over 2000 students at 80 schools have used NaTakallam’s programs.

All of NaTakallam’s services for academic institutions are centered around providing affordable and enriching opportunities that complement existing coursework. For all programs, NaTakallam conversation partners work with professors to align sessions in support of ongoing coursework objectives and track students’ participation throughout the semester, allowing professors to account for these sessions as part of students’ grades.

Virtual Guest Speaker:

Amplify refugee voices in your university. These one-time sessions invite a NaTakallam conversation partner to videoconference into classrooms for conversation, Q&A, and discussion of the impact that displacement has had on their lives. These sessions can be conducted in any language.

“Interacting with language partners through Natakallam has made Arabic come alive for our students. They’ve applied their classroom linguistic and cultural information in the real world, and have come away not only with new knowledge, but also with a renewed passion for Arabic.”
