Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Chatterbug is the name of a new online language learning tool created by some of the founders of GitHub. Initially launched in Germany …and now in the U.S…Chatterbug has some key differences from the competition according to CEO Scott Chacon…
“So we have a self study portion that helps you learn vocabulary and grammar and then a tutoring section where you can connect with a live speaker and connect everything that you’ve been learning. It has the ease of use and flexibility of an app that you would use to learn a language and then also the efficacy of an in person language school.”
More languages are on the way, but for now the choices are limited to German and Spanish. You can get started for as little as 18 dollars a month after a free trial at Chatterbug.com.
