I built PrettyPolly because learning languages has been a personal frustration of mine. I spent 5 years studying French at school, yet - when I went to France - I couldn't speak to anyone.
Later in life, I travelled with some French friends. I spoke to them in broken French at first, but became conversational after a few weeks. I realized then how important it is to practice speaking with native speakers.
Normally when learning a language, you don't have native language speakers around who are willing to let you practice. I made PrettyPolly so that anyone can practice with a resource that is ever-present and endlessly helpful.
I would love to hear from you if you have any questions, issues or feedback. Feel free to email me using firstname.lastname@example.org. I reply to every email personally.
