What is it?

The Buddy System is a new feature on the LRDG Portal. It pairs learners of similar interests and work backgrounds and recommends them to other learners with the same goal in mind – improving their official target language!
Learners can browse suggested profiles and send Buddy requests. Once connected, learners can chat at their leisure over video, audio, or text and develop their language skills, whether or not they have access to tutor support.

How does it work?

The “Buddy System” is based on open-source WebRTC protocol. This technology allows us to deliver high resolution voice calling, video chat, and text chat directly through your browser without any external plugins!

What next?

Create a unique Buddy System profile through your LRDG Portal account, find and friend some new buddies, and chat your way to language fluency!
