No! You don’t need a subscription and you also don’t need to buy lesson packages. You pay only for individual language lessons that you really use – they are charged by the minute right after they end.

At the moment, we offer English and German. We are working hard to extend this to further languages.

All Sbique tutors are native speakers who have demonstrated their ability to teach languages through extensive online or offline teaching.

Our matching algorithm always tries to match you with the most suitable available native speaker. This takes into account the ratings that you and other users give to our native speakers, the conversation topic you are looking for and some other factors that should ensure a perfect match.

Depending on the time of day, it takes us between 1-90 seconds to find your match.

Absolutely. You can simply bookmark your favorite tutors and when you request a lesson, we will send the request to them first, thereby making sure that you have the opportunity to practice together again and again.

No. You only need the Sbique app. The video call functionality and everything else is fully integrated.

Not at the moment. Do send us an email to contact@sbique.com if this is something that would be important to you.

No. We don’t do tandems on Sbique because we believe in the importance of concentrated and active learning. During your sessions, the focus will be completely on your own learning and we will never ask you to tutor others.

Of course! Just check out our Sbique Magazine for all kinds of tips, tricks and interesting info around the topic of language learning.
