IdiomOcean connects language students with native speakers to talk about their shared interests (e.g. gardening, biotechnology and marketing), through both informal conversations and themed courses. Students learn specialized vocabulary and improve their conversational skills, native speakers make money, and they all benefit from interesting new contacts and conversations.
Aside from the immediate and obvious benefits to the student, Idiomocean in particular will open the opportunity to many native speakers who lack formal teaching training to tutor their own language, allowing them to increase their income from home.
There are also certified and experienced language teachers who can teach topics as grammar and phonetics.
-Variety is the key: Access to different nationalities, accents, vocabulary and expressions across a shared interest will improve students' listening and speaking skills
-Both passion and need are strong learning drivers
-Education must be personalized
