What is Myngle?

We have blogged about the professional networking site LinkedIn here on the Morgan PR blog before and mere minutes ago I was perusing the LinkedIn Answers that feed into Outlook through an RSS feed, as you do, when my curiousity was piqued to review a video that someone in LinkedIn had posted on YouTube.

Apart from being modestly delighted to be the 16th person to view 'What is Myngle' I was actually really impressed, not just with the video - which is below - but also the concept. The Myngle website (incidentally, possibly my well honed typing, but I almost mangle Myngle everytime I type it!) basically links language students with native language teachers who between them find a budget and timetable to suit and using Skype are able to communicate for one to one lessons.

Pretty clever eh? Just might polish up my Spanish. Or Thai. I wonder if they have Albanian?



If you are LinkedIn you can view the LinkedIn Answer here and my LinkedIn profile here.

Clearly this was a particularly good way to promote Myngle and is likely to create that all important viral buzz that will drive traffic to their site and encourage people to use the service.

Hi Nigel:

Thanks for bringing this to our awareness. Will pass this on to my former ESL/FSL colleagues and students and hopefully, will have the opportunity to use it myself to brush up on my languages.

Merci! Gracias! Kum sum knee da! She She! Arigato! Shukria! Yakayiu! Grazie! Obrigato! Astablief! Meegwitch!...Marianna
