Help German learners & make friends

Talk, Experience, Support

An open platform for dialog:

Little World is built on a simple belief - Meaningful conversations create connection, compassion and an understanding that enables a strong and supportive society to grow. That's why we connect German learners and native speakers with one another, efficiently and for free through our digital platform.

Become part of our community, raise awareness and help create a more integrated society.
