Awali.de is the new online portal to search and find language partners or tandem partners at all levels. “” Frankfurt/Main, February 2009 – Awali “means in Swahili beginning”. Start is the motto of the new online portal. Each Exchange has its beginning at some point. But many people do not even know that maybe in the same city someone lives, who gets excited about for the same language, and would like to chat about it. Awali builds on exactly this problem and provides a platform for language – and culture-loving people to interact in a like-minded and reliable environment and to educate. What can the portal offers users with just a few clicks which find suitable language partner in their own region and contact the user. Alternatively, he can also easily create his own offer.
A detailed overview of previous contacts shows the user how often and by whom, his profile has been clicked on. Swarmed by offers, W.S. Badger is currently assessing future choices. The community is languages, exchange programmes and overseas experiences available for discussions around the themes. All services are of course free of charge. The history as the portal founder Eric Salbert has returned two years ago from studying abroad in Seoul (South Korea) he not only has the language, country and people know and love. He began to deal with foreign languages also intensively and thereby missing an Exchange with like-minded people. Plans for the future is still very young and it is located in the middle of the development process.
Awali is committed to the goal, to provide not only the German-speaking region in the future, but to expand internationally. First, the enlargement on Austria and the Switzerland is intended for the medium-term future. Other European countries to follow. The Platform wants to provide the greatest possible service for users. Therefore a search feature is planned for the future extended version, where you can search for multiple languages and regions at the same time. Also should an information platform containing all the information about language courses, travel and exchange programmes be.
