What SpeakShake for?

SpeakShake is a video-calling platform to help you practice a foreign language in tandem through semi-guided conversations.
Access hundreds of interactive cards with different topics of conversation, questions and key words.
Boost your oral confidence and get one step closer to becoming fluent in a foreign language thanks to the SpeakShake platform.


Approved and recommended as one of the best online methods, each bilingual conversation lasts 30 minutes, with 15 minutes in your native language and 15 minutes in your learning language.
Broaden your vocabulary by using the integrated « Notebook » whereby students can save key words and phrases from each conversation at a late date.
At the end of each online conversation, there is a feedback session where you get the opportunity to receive some real and valuable comments on any errors or mistakes made, and tips on how to improve.
This is a solution for all curious foreign language learners of the Language Resource Center: students, staff members, professors wishing to practice a foreign language through oral interaction.
