WHO WE ARE

 

We (Ana Maria and Macarena) met through the MBA program at University of Oxford in September 2016. Being both born in Latin America and having dedicated part of our life to social impact, we realised that we shared a powerful goal; to create opportunities for people in Latin America by embracing their talents and helping them to reach their full potential. In November of 2016, we started Language Amigo through the MBA entrepreneurship project course.

 

Today, we are solving a social problem, lack of economic opportunities for youth in Latin America, through a market opportunity, Spanish language learning. In addition, we are offering to Spanish language learners the opportunity to put into practice their foreign language knowledge and have real world conversations with real and friendly people, Amigos.

 

We believe that the main objective to learn a language is to be able to connect with people from another country, culture, and background, and of course, enjoy the journey!
