What is TAALK.io?
TAALK.io is a revolutionary way of practising languages with other users via language exchanges. From now on, you won't have to already know people in order to practise, as we will offer them to you so that you can do this at any time and from anywhere. How does TAALK.io work?
It's really simple! Choose the language and level you want to practise at and leave it to us to show you the most interesting partner matches for you, keeping in mind your interests, age and passions. Choose who you want to talk to and click on TAALK. On the other side of the screen the person you want to talk to will appear so you can chat. Agree on the duration, a topic and... start practising!

When you have finished, don't forget to fill out the feedback -it only takes a moment- which will help inform us on how the session went so that we can offer you better matches every time, with regard to your interests and needs. Log in at http://www.taalk.io and start practising straight away!

[Madrid, April 22nd] Professor Marta Genis, head of the Department of Applied Languages, has received the Award for Teaching Excellence (Docentia 12-13) bestowed by the Commission of the Faculty of Arts and Letters.

2013-14 is the first academic year in which the award has been conferred and it aims to set an example of good practice in the classroom. Involvement with students, the use of new methodologies, and the passion with which teaching is approached are some of the keys to success of this award-winning teacher and what has led her to receive this mention.

Professor Genis has also received the Annual Research Award 12-13 of the Faculty of Arts and Letters for her remarkable research output of the same year as reflected in the research activity indicator calculated by the TORR (Transfer Office of Research Results).

The awards ceremony was held on Berzosa Campus, during the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas.
