Speak Human

The Only Dedicated Culture, Language & Travel Community that Helps People Adapt to Life Anywhere

What’s your travel personality type?

Global Guides

Our Global Guides share radically personal experiences, insights and resources. If you’re ready to explore the world, your in-app journey starts here. If you’re already a world traveler, we’d love to read or watch your stories.

Students

No one wants to show up to a new campus without at least a one trusted go-to person. Our app connects international students to locals, campus resources and offers a world of stories to help each student adapt to life anywhere.

Multinationals

We’re a planet of story-sharing expats, re-pats, or among the millions living in digital diaspora. If you plan relocating internationally, or thinking about it, our community-fed resources will help you thrive in any geography.

Organizations

Organizational users are International Student offices at universities and colleges that serve inbound and outgoing global students. Or, they are HR and employee success divisions of companies, NGOs and other organizations.

Connect. Share. Learn. Here's how it works.
