LingoPass! Announces the Launch of Language Arbitrage -- A New Language Exchange for Professionals

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - December 7, 2009) - Chicago-based LingoPass! LLC today announced the launch of a revolutionary new language exchange for professionals called Language Arbitrage. This new style of language exchange solves common dilemmas found in current Internet-based language exchange.

Language Arbitrage

Language Arbitrage can be likened to a language barter system that returns more than you put in. When participants contribute a one-hour discussion in any language, they receive access to speak in the audio/visual classroom for one week. This allows them to speak in all public discussions hosted by other members. When hundreds of language partners participate, each will have access hundreds of planned conversations in exchange for their one-hour contribution.

The program focuses more on keeping language partners speaking about meaningful topics and less on teaching. Adding a discussion to the language exchange program takes ten minutes. Discussion leaders complete a short form in which they select a day and time convenient for them to host their discussions. Next, the leader finds something to discuss -- a short article or video. Using the form, the leader identifies difficult vocabulary words and develops questions to lead the discussion.

When the online form is submitted, the leader receives points that can be exchanged for one week of access to speak in the language exchange. In order to speak in this discussion, participants must add their own discussions, reciprocating the opportunity to practice and learn. The program provides a nice supplement to any general or business language course.

Language Arbitrage successfully eliminates problems related to aligning busy language partners' schedules, mismatched language pairings, language domination by one partner, and lack of preparation.

According to Chris Titus, the founder of LingoPass! LLC, "We beta tested this language exchange program during the spring with great success. We now look to replicate it on a larger scale."
