Experience a New Approach to Language Learning

Welcome to a fresh take on language learning with Crosstalki. Our approach is based on the Crosstalk method, which draws inspiration from Stephen Krashen's theory of comprehensible input.

What is Crosstalk?

Crosstalk is a unique language exchange method where you engage in conversation with a partner fluent in the language you want to learn. But here's the twist: You both converse solely in your native languages. This approach is grounded in Krashen's principle that the ability to speak a new language is the result of receiving quality input, not the cause. So, in Crosstalk, the focus is on understanding your partner's language over speaking it, underlining the importance of comprehensible input as the primary driver of language acquisition.

  • Suitable for Any Level: From absolute beginners to advanced learners, Crosstalk accommodates all levels of language learners.
