    busuu – the language learning community – empowers everyone in the world to learn a new language. Our 60 million users make us a world-leading provider of language learning apps. With busuu, language learners can train their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, get advanced grammar units and practice with native speakers. busuu is available on web and app for iPhone and Android.

    We believe that language learning does not need to be difficult, time-consuming or expensive. That’s why we have created busuu, the easy and effective way to learn another language.With a team of educational experts, designers and developers we have created a mobile and web app that has helped over 70 million users to learn another language.

    We have a really fun time working at our offices at Silicon Roundabout in London. We value the input of everyone and from day one you will be able to make a difference. We believe we have something truly unique and hard to find here at busuu, which is founded by a set of values that means we always enjoy the work we do together:
