TalkTalkBnB : FREE B&B by speaking your way around the world.
Note: This is not a sponsored post. I just think it’s a really great, thrifty idea!
You’ve heard of ‘singing for your supper’, well how about speaking your native language in return for FREE bed and breakfast in countries all over the world? That’s exactly what TalkTalkBnb are offering would-be travelers when they register for their simple, friendly and free service.
So what is Talktalkbnb?
Simply put, TalkTalkBnb is a community platform linking people willing to exchange languages and cultures. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship whereby people can travel the world and have a free place to stay, in return for speaking and sharing their native language with their hosts.
Travelers can sign-up, list their native language and where they’d like to travel. Hosts also create a profile, which lists the languages they’d like to learn.
The concept was borne out of the idea that in today’s society it’s essential to speak one or more foreign languages. For children, students, working men and women and those looking for work, being able to speak foreign languages is a definite plus.
The best way to learn a language is to practice and that’s where TalkTalkBnb comes in. The simple, friendly and free community platform puts people who want to learn languages in touch with people who want to travel the world, offering a clever alternative to traditional accommodation, while helping hosts learn a language.
• For those traveling, it means free accommodation, good homemade meals, contact with local people, advice on where to go and what to do, etc.
• For those hosting, it’s a unique opportunity to practice a language with a native speaker, at home, and in an informal but very effective way.
