A Chat with Argot
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Learning a new language takes place outside of the classroom as much as within. At Argot's language exchanges, you get to put the vocabulary and grammar you learned to use, while also learning the way the language is spoken in the real world - slang and expressions included!
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Just bring yourself and your language skills! We provide a fun, casual environment for you to practice your foreign language. At the event, we'll connect you with people fluent in the language you're learning and practicing the language you're fluent in. With each person, you'll speak 8 minutes in one language followed by 8 minutes in the other language.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I was inspired to create this program after spending 3 months in France at the end of 2015. It was through weekly language exchanges like this that I gained confidence and became comfortable speaking in French. It was also here that I made great friends, locals and foreigners alike.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that everyone coming to our exchanges is looking to improve themselves and expand their worlds. Learning languages allows us to communicate with people of different backgrounds and cultures, in turn making us more open and accepting human beings. Also, selfishly, I get to practice as well!
