About this app

SewaYou is the first location-based language exchange application that helps you easily find online language partners and meet offline those nearby in your area to practice in real-life.

What makes SewaYou different?
🌏 Find on an interactive world map native speakers nearby and anywhere on earth. Without restriction.
Only approximate location is used.

☕️ Suggested nice and cozy Cafes between you and your nearby language partner to quickly meet up.
30 minutes of real-life practice is worth 3 days of chatting online.

🌐 Online exchange: your partner lives in another country? No problem.
Advanced chat with built-in language tools (1-Click Translation, Message Correction, Voice Message, Video Call) to freely practice with natives from anywhere.

🙅‍♀️🙅 Tired of receiving messages from people using language exchange app for dating purpose?
You come to the right place. Enable the “Same Gender Mode” option, and only interact with people in the same gender.

💬 To get better in a language, you need to talk with real people
Learning by yourself can be demotivating.
Talking to real natives, learn about their culture, talk proudly about yours.
Help and get help.
Learning and practicing a language should be fun!

📈 Improve every aspect of a language
🗣👂 Speaking & Listening: with voice message, voice call.
Improve your pronunciation and imitate your language partner accent

📖✍️ Reading & Writing: use the latest grammar pattern you’ve learned, and get your message corrected if you make any mistakes.
Don’t worry, everyone does 👌

📡 Communication skill: the hardest one.
Language skill is just half of the equation.
Body gesture, eye contact, listening skill, get yourself heard.
All of this can only be mastered from practicing in real-life.
So meet up with your language partner nearby, and let’s practice!

SewaYou is NOT a teacher/student app, so don't worry, you don't pay lesson fee or anything to anyone.

SewaYou is NOT yet another Swipe-Match-Chat language exchange app where you have to pay more to swipe and chat more!

SewaYou was built in Japan, Tokyo, so a lot of the community members are serious native Japanese learners, and people who are looking to improve their language and help you improve yours 💪

A fantastic app that allows users to find and chat with fellow language learners across the globe. It uses a powerful messenger system that allows many media types, and displays users' relative fluency to find appropriate matches. Has a sensible UI, and a rapidly-growing user base. Highly recommend for anyone seeking practice with a native of a different language!

Firstly the app is good, it has map facility by which you can search your language partner easily. It is the best place to meet the people from different countries and make new friends.

Nobody ever replies. Many features are paid only. People completely don't care about keeping in touch. If you write a comment about your experience and the team doesn't like it, they delete it. Feed and messages are being monitored. Despite promoting in person meetings, there's a notification in the conversation that says you get banned if you exchange other apps, of course they can't monitor your other apps. Staff is among the users to monitor and promote (right Phil?). Need better PM/PR staff.

Thanks for your feedback. User messages are not monitored nor moderated. Public feed is moderated for safety, like other apps. Our Terms encourage constructive feedback over dismissive remark. We use the app to understand and improve it. Most features are free; Pro features aid maintenance. User interaction, like reply frequency, is user-dependent.
