Crowdsourcing

RhinoSpike

RhinoSpike is a language learning tool that connects you with native speakers to exchange foreign language audio files.

Here’s how it works:

Submit some text that you want read aloud in a foreign language.

Record your voice for an Audio Request in your native language.

Download the audio file. Learn the language through real, native input!

You have to record for others to get credits to download the recording made for you.

Also it is best to try to focus in on someone who speaks your target learning and wants to learn your native language.  

Just helping people randomly did not get results for me.  I have to wait long for someone to “randomly” help me.
