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!

Bad app. The search system is so bad, such a bad setup and layout of it and difficult to use, have to search via each town/city and can't do full country. Buggy and slow apps, often features don't work such as voice notes. Literally a handful of Arabic helpers, none from UK and even those profiles are dead! Most popular Arab cities show as empty, no profiles and very few cities have just a few. Can't search via gender or age, unless you upgrade. Can send 30 msgs per day. Get no replies. Avoid

Thanks for your review. SewaYou is location-based and designed to foster in-person meetups. Our search functionality works on a more fine-grained level, similar to how you search for restaurants on Google Maps, by specific area. Also, it's not 30 mgs/day, but 30 new conversations/day. Not many Arabic natives at the moment, but we're working on it!

The setup is very interesting. It needs some improvements for sure but as it is now, i think it's pretty convenient to use. One improvement i want is a way to get your profile more exposure and an option to adjust preferences of language partners. If being a preemium member would help, I would like to give it a try!

Great and practical app for meeting native speakers whether online or irl for practicing whatever languages you're learning. While it is currently mainly for Japanese, there's nothing stopping it from working for any language in the world. The app also gets frequent updates by the dev team, adding useful features and making it easier to connect with native speakers.
