Futuresay is an internet hub where you can find the best way to learn English with a real person – and not just a machine, be it an online game or a tape recorder.
Futuresay was launched (originally under the name Learn2) by two Englishmen in Moscow and London. Having learned Russian at British universities, we knew what a difference a language teacher can make. The concept was conceived during a conversation on a hill in China, where we came to understand that learning a language as an adult has particular challenges.
Learners want to concentrate on learning; teachers want to concentrate on teaching.
They shouldn’t have to search around for tutors, haggle down prices, negotiate payment terms or worry about scheduling. That’s the role of our platform. We have a searchable database of the best tutors, three pricing categories and a simple cancellation policy that we can enforce.
Alex Teddy is a dedicated linguist, who has lived in Russia for several years, speaks French, and has even been known to converse in Bislama, a pidgin dialect found only in the South Pacific.
Will Bland once tried to learn French using a dictionary. His first Russian lesson included the translation for “watertight bulkhead” and he’s making slow progress in Chinese.
