What is a Langroops Community?
A Langroops Community brings together native speakers of two languages who are learning each other's language. The purpose of the community is to learn from and help each other. The community stays connected and interacts across several platforms including Whatsapp, Facebook and a weekly online meeting.
What happens at the weekly meeting?
At the weekly meetings, community members gather together to video chat and practice speaking their target language. Participants will be divided into small groups of 3-5 people by the host (usually the community leader) where they can talk about the weekly topic or just chat. During the meetings, we encourage everyone to talk in their target language as much as possible and to help others by offering corrections and advice (unless instructed otherwise by the host).
Where does the weekly meeting take place?
The weekly meeting takes place on the Langroops website. There is no need to download any software, just join through your browser. We encourage joining from a PC with a stable wifi connection for the optimal experience.
How do I get the link for the meeting?
In order to attend the weekly meeting, you must be signed up for the Langroops website, have a member profile, and RSVP to the meeting on our Schmoozes page. After RSVPing you will receive a confirmation email with the link and a "Join" button will apear.
How do I find a community?
Can I join more than one community?
Yes. As long as you are a native speaker of one of the community languages you can join as many communities as you want!

How do I join the community Facebook and Whatsapp group?

Who is considered a native speaker?
Can I join a community even if I am not a native speaker?
You are welcome to join any community group as an observer, but we kindly ask that you do not attend the weekly meeting unless you are a native speaker of one of the two community languages. Community is about give and take. Instead of joining a community where you are only taking, we encourage you to start your own community for your native and target language.
There is no community for me, what should I do?
Sit at home alone and cry. NOT ;). Join the Langroops international team of volunteers and start your own community with our support!
