In February 2010 Small Bridge, the company behind Cafetalk was founded. Shortly afterwards Small Bridge started Cafetalk, first only as an English learning site, which has now grown into a platform for a variety of lessons that connects tutors and students in over 80 countries with lessons in over 100 categories.

Thank you! to you from our tutors

Thank you from everyone at Team Cafetalk!

In the last 10 years Cafetalk has grown from a small website with a few tutors into a platform that connects tutors and students worldwide. Just like them our team also operates in different timezones, we combine 6 nationalities between us and speak 8 languages fluently. All of us love to learn about other cultures and languages and we are also students (some of us even started out as teachers!) on Cafetalk, too.

No matter if it's one-on-one online or in person through events and seminars, connecting people who are eager to learn and expand their horizons with those who are passionate about sharing their knowledge is what motivates us to keep growing Cafetalk as a platform that makes these human connections possible.

Thank you for being part of it! We look forward to the next 10 years and more!
