TalkShop Africa is an online language learning program of a kind where ambitious young people in Tanzania receive language tips via their smart phones.
Young Africans pursue ambitious plans despite their difficult economic situation. For example, Leah lives in Daressalam and wants to work as a journalist. For this, she needs to improve her English. Erick is a student and runs an internet café in Kilosa. He wants to help rural youth to improve their living standards. Rehema is a rice seller and want to open a copyshop. For this, she needs to learn how to write correct English emails. Amani plans to further develop his translation service and to offer English coaching to Africans.
"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things."
